The FOX News Spin On Alito Has Begun. FOXNews.com Alters AP Headline To Call Alito "Thoughtful, Fair" Instead of "Strong Conservative"

Reported by Ellen - October 31, 2005

The headline on FOXNews.com (currently also on the home page) reads "Alito Known as Thoughtful, Fair." But the original AP headline read "Alito Strong Conservative On Liberal Court."

But wait, there's more.

The larger headline on FOXNews.com's home page , the headline just above the one telling us Alito is thoughtful and fair makes it clear we are supposed to think Democrats are the unfair ones. "Senate Democrats already coming out against experienced judge."

Proof positive that FOX News has altered the definition of "fair" to mean "conservative."

Tell FOX News that "fair" means inclusion of the half of the country that is not conservative.
