Praising the Liberal Media?

Reported by Judy - July 2, 2004 -

Fox News usually crows about its top-notch news gathering organization, but the truth is, a lot of its news comes from the same place every other channel's comes from -- wire reports which often include information from newspapers.

Fox and Friends co-host Steve Doocy admitted as much today (July 2, 8:07 a.m. EDT) as he quoted twice within a matter of seconds from The New York Times story about the arraignment of former Iraqi government officials yesterday.

The Times, of course, must be part of that "liberal media" which is not as "fair and balanced" as Fox. As if to excuse the use of material from a liberal rag like The Times , E.D. Hill quickly noted, "Actually The New York Times put out a pretty good paper today."

Her point: usually they don't but today's an exception and that's why we're quoting from it so much.
