Their Sister Organization

I've long wondered why so many journalists treated Fox News like a news organization that followed the same rules that they liked to think they follow. It wasn't until the election of Obama that this facade cracked somewhat, but until then Fox really was given an equal seat at the table by many journalists. I don't know whether they really believed it or if they thought they had something to gain by keeping up the pretense. It could have been is as simple as liking the people they worked along side of, and rarely if ever actually watching the finish product.

And, no, I don't have problems with ideological news outlets. They're all ideological in result if not always conscious intention, though the difference really isn't that important. But Fox was something else.

Also, too, I don't believe the rest of the non-Fox journalists had never heard the stories of what was going on there...
