As the war of words between Fox News and the Obama Administration continues, one thing becomes clear — assertions that Fox News gives slanted and biased, even dishonest coverage, applies even to the way Fox News defends itself.
Fox has been asserting that since the Obama Administration has begun their attacks their ratings are up. It’s an attempt by Fox News to imply that Obama’s attacks against them for bias and dishonest reporting has backfired and has driven more people to watching Fox News. This matters because it goes to the heart of the of the problem. After all if Fox News cant or wont tell the truth about itself, why would anything think they would tell the truth about the issues they report on?
