OK, when you hear “fair and balanced” what do you think of?
The Free Dictionary defines…
- a. Having or exhibiting a disposition that is free of favoritism or bias; impartial: a fair mediator.
- b. Just to all parties; equitable: a compromise that is fair to both factions.
- 6. A harmonious or satisfying arrangement or proportion of parts or elements, as in a design. See Synonyms at proportion.
- 7. An influence or force tending to produce equilibrium; counterpoise.
Fox Nation posted this image on their website for an article on Oregon and Washington states new insurance regulations for health insurance for trans-people.
Does this look “Fair and Balanced”? Or do think it is to mock and to degrade transgender people?
But then we always knew that Fox is ultra-right wing and little things like the truth never stopped them from a good story. They have since changed the photo, even they realized that they went too far.
