Their Sister Organization

Kudos to Howell Raines, but the embrace of Fox News by mainstream media outlets really has been puzzling. It isn't simply that they're conservative (charitable view) or Republican (more true), but that they're... you know, just a really crappy news organization if one thinks the job of a news organization is to accurately inform readers/viewers about relevant current events. I don't have a problem with ideological news outlets, though they should be up front about their slant, but ideological news outlets should still try to be somewhat fact-based.
