Would a "Fair & Balanced" news network fail to report a republican sex scandal and pounce on a democrat one? It seems so. We know that our elected representatives are prone to sex scandals on the left and the right, and whenever one arises it's big news and easily makes headlines. So why would Fox News fail to deliver the goods on republican Nevada senator John Ensign's recent extramarital affair?
(Washington Post) Fox News producer explains why:
"As the day went on, it fell off my radar," Lowell said. When he heard the next day that Ensign had scheduled a news conference, "at that point I realized there might be credibility to these claims. . . . Should I have paid a little more attention to this e-mail? Sure."
Yeah it's easy as a top notch news network to drop the ball on a sex scandal on a 2012 presidential hopeful and rising star in the GOP......yep easy. Heads up to Fox though for the extensive coverage of the all important Senator Barbra Boxer dissing a general story.
