    That's what we have:

    MSNBC vs. Foxnews, ftw.

    You also have to add Glenn Beck and Lou Dobbs, both of whom are strongly against Liberals and get considerably more ratings than a segment on MSNBC does.

    Computing two biases in television against another doesn't make it fair. Look at the owners of these companies and their share of newpapers and other articles across the country and where they're placed.

    Oh, granted, but I'm only positing that we have these formulations in place already.

    The really funny part (to me, anyway) is any (re)iteration of the fairness doctrine would require libs to come clean on their current "oh, but we're mainstream" cover and assume their proper position.

    I feel like I'm missing something here.
    The whole point of the thread, actually.

    Liberals should come clean but Fox News gets to claim it's "fair and balanced"?

    Not at all.

    Satisfactory fairness can be achieved simply by having MSNBC make a claim similar to Fox's.
