James Fallows, the award-winning National Correspondent for "The Atlantic," has blasted the Fox New Channel’s coverage on Sunday, March 21, of the vote on Health Care.
In his blog at "The Atlantic," Fallows wrote, You can agree or disagree about this legislation. But really, you cannot look at this "news" coverage and consider it other than outright political activism. There is nothing wrong with outright political activism. [Fox’s] Megyn Kelly is arguably no more partisan on her show than [MSNBC’s] Rachel Maddow is on hers. But not a single person on Earth thinks that Rachel Maddow is a "news" anchor. For the sake of sanity, precision in language, self-respect, and any other desirable quality we can think of, let’s drop the pretense about what’s coming across on Fox. This surprises even me."
Fallows also served in the Carter administration as a speechwriter.
