Neil Cavuto: Loyal Soldier for the Right (Not a Journalist)

Reported by Melanie - March 8, 2005

Fox claims to be "fair and balanced," right? According to the Code of Ethics of the Society of Professional Journalists, a reporter should be fair and avoid imposing his or her values on the news consumer, right? A news consumer should be able to trust that the information presented isn't slanted to one side or another, right?

Well, speaking of ethics, today (March 8, 2005) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto, Cavuto led a roundtable discussion about ethical standards for CEO's. The discussion grew out of yesterday's firing of Boeing's CEO due to an "adulterous affair" he had with a co-worker. Guest Brian Sullivan said, "Expectations are very high and if you can't control your hormones turn down the promotion because you've got boards of directors now..." Interrupting, Cavuto, apparently unable to pass up an opportunity to link adultery to Bill Clinton (and by association, to Democrats), said: "Doesn't seem to affect people who get elected president of the United States."

Comment: Fox doesn't miss a beat. Their "reporters" and "anchors" are ready at the drop of a hat to dig at Democrats, at the left, at liberals, at anyone who doesn't side with Bush. They do it this way, as well as more overtly, day in and day out, month after month, year after year.
