Fair And Balanced? Fox News Directing Viewers To Democratic Town Halls Only

Reported by Ellen - August 7, 2009 -

Think Progress writes: Earlier today, Fox News publicized the time and location of “gladiatorial” town halls hosted by Democrats — but not Republicans. With “heated” and increasingly confrontational town halls now dominating news coverage, Washington correspondent James Rosen announced he had “obtained a large Excel spreadsheet showing the schedule of town halls for Democratic members of Congress.” Rosen reported the time and location of several town halls, including those for Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA). To explain why Fox wasn’t reporting on town halls hosted by Republicans, Rosen assured viewers that if he “had the spreadsheet for the Republican members,” he would “share” that as well.

Well, it turns out Media Matters' Jamison Foser obtained a list of town halls that include Republicans and posted it on their site. So what's Fox's excuse now?
