A Fox Anchor Comes Clean

Fox anchor Chris Wallace admits that Fox News' pretensions to being "fair and balanced" are a sham, and the network is, in fact, just an outlet for conservative propaganda:

"My feeling is that a lot of time 'fair and balanced' means giving the conservative point of view because that doesn't get reflected in the mainstream media."
What's particularly striking about this admission, is the notion that the "conservative point of view" is not presented in the mainstream media. When you consider that right-wing media personalities such as Pat Buchanan, Tucker Carlson, Glenn Beck, Joe Scarborough, & a host of others anchor shows on networks other than Fox, you're left with only one of three options: (a) Wallace is delusional, (b) Wallace is dishonest, or (c) Wallace is an idiot.
