Misinformation

OK, I think journalists deserve almost limitless freedom, but Fox News is making a mockery of journalism and facts. Fair and balanced is a crock, but their "Fun with Facts"(TM) is absurd. O'Reilley, who seems to live in a fantasy world first tried to portray Mark Foley as a Democrat. Now, Fox is portraying Sheldon Whitehouse (the Democratic Senatorial candidate in Rhode Island) as a GOPer while Chafee is the Democrat.

This is embarassing and dangerous. I wouldn't mind so much if Fox started airing a disclaiimer about the varacity of their journalism or become an outright satire news network (which they have been spiraling towards). You can have opinions, but facts are facts and shouldn't be distorted.
