Fox goes way beyond just shoddy reporting to being purposefully shoddy. To them professional journalism is liberal bias because it attempts to portray both sides as neutral and legitimate viewpoints, which is something that fanatics cannot and do not tolerate. Why else do they claim to be "fair and balanced" while throwing all ethical journalism to the curb? It's a perverted and inverted world where black is white and white is black. The people who watch Fox and believe what they say are proud to be watching the one and only "fair and balanced" network, and like misfolded [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prion]prions[/link], they go out into the world and online to ideologically "misfold" the minds of others.
