    NYT: As the NBC News anchor learned, even amateur sleuths can expose untruths and spread the outrage.

    I am reminded of Jonathan Gruber when his videos buried in Youtube were uncovered.

    I don't object to the downfall of Brian Williams. I merely wonder why it hasn't applied to the even worse liars at Fox News? Their outright lies are exposed daily. I wonder why it was only an anchor from a "liberal" news source that was forced to step down?

    As anyone who watches FNC alongside other news programs knows, there are a LOT of stories reported there that are ignored, if not actively suppressed, elsewhere. Try viewing back-to-back broadcasts of FNC against PBS, CBS, or - worst of all - MSNBC, and see if you don't agree. Provided you're capable of viewing and judging rationally, that is.

    FOX claimed the murders in the black church shootings was an attack on faith, and it was NOT racially based.
    Thus it was not a black hate crime. They even found a black reverend to spew that nonsense.

    This excuses the many southern Republican states that do not have defined "hate crimes" for blacks, gays etc.

    Of course NBC, CBS and ABC reported it a likely hate crime, considering the church's storied past. FOX said it was a rush to judgement....what was theirs? A rush to stupidity? Arrogance? White-washing?

    FOX stories aren't being "suppressed" they are likely bogus, or don't meet the criteria of evidence. Only FOX would run with nonsense and spin it in a "attack on faith" as everything apparently is. Among them is our "Homosexual Agenda".....more BS for their fodder.

    If you find FOX on equal footing, YOU are biased.
