Fox News Shameful Bias Over Brexit - Promoting Project Fear.............from Daniel Thomas


Every organization these days uses a slogan in order to portray a positive image of itself for reasons of self promotion. Sometimes that slogan belies the reality, being used only to attract low information viewers to increase ratings and subsequently advertising revenue.

If ever a slogan belies reality it's 'Fair and Balanced' used by Fox News. The obvious bias of Megan Kelly against presumptive Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, is a case in point.

I don't think I'm going back.
