Fairly Unbalanced

Fox News is still falsely reporting that a California school district banned the Declaration of Independence because it mentions God (courtesy of Media Matters):

Between November 24 and December 7, the Cupertino case has been falsely reported on seven occasions on FOX News primetime programs, numerous times during FOX News daytime programming, as well as on FOX Broadcasting Network's FOX News Sunday. Hannity & Colmes planned a December 8 live broadcast from Cupertino; a promo for that show asserted that the Constitution and Declaration of Independence had been "banned" by a California school that is "erasing God."

Wow. One mistake, okay, but as Bush himself once said, "There's an old saying in Tennessee - I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee...that says, fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me...you can't get fooled again!"

I honestly feel bad for those who exclusively rely on Fox News. Many have called for liberals to buy their own network to get the word out; this sounds great to me. For now, I guess we have The Daily Show.
