"Fair & Balanced" Fox Nation Runs Article From Anti-Abortion Website
Reported by Priscilla - November 8, 2011 -
According to its "statement of purpose," Fox Nation is "committed to the core principles of tolerance, open debate, civil discourse, and fair and balanced coverage of the news." Yet, they have an article, from the rabidly anti-choice website "Life News," which touts the awesomeness of the closure of several Texas Planned Parenthood as a "victory" for women. The thread is illustrated with the perfunctory anti-choice icon of the thumb sucking fetus. If Fox were "fair & balanced," they would have an article about how these closures are very detrimental to low income women who use these facilities for their gynecological health. They could run the article from RH Reality Check which discusses how Texas alternatives to Planned Parenthood don't really exist. But they don't and I'm not holding my breath waiting for one. So does this mean that Fox Nation isn't "fair & balanced?" Oh, nooooooo.....
And BTW, the Fox Nation residents find the article "inspiring."
