Pick of the day: Fox News serves with a different view
I have two questions for Forest Jones, author of the commentary that portrayed Fox News as the evil media empire (“Jonesing on Fox News,” Nov. 17).
First, was it really necessary to throw his 85-year-old father under the bus because he likes Fox News?
Whatever happened to the Fifth Commandment — “Honor your father and your mother”? I guess that’s irrelevant in today’s progressive world.
Second, given that Fox News is partisan (aren’t they all?), is it still not possible that the provision of different viewpoints is a valuable service?
A good example is the Benghazi attack of Sept. 11: Fox News was very busy covering that attack, whereas most of the rest of the media were busy covering the president’s posterior.
Could it be that we just elected a president who was able to mislead voters on an important foreign policy issue, mainly because most of the media ignored the story?
Perhaps bias at Fox News is not the only media problem we have.
