I won’t join such a boycott.

Fox News was, without question, the most balanced network throughout the election. No — their coverage wasn’t always favorable to conservatives or Republicans. But, I’m not looking for a shill ... I’m looking for someone to give me the news.

A study I recently saw spoke of the number of negative stories about each candidate from each network ... 85% of MSNBC’s McCain stories were unfavorable, compared to about 20% of Obama stories. CNN was almost as bad. Fox had 40% unfavorable for McCain, 40% for Obama.

Overall — I like their coverage. Hume, Barnes, Kondrake, Krauthammer, Kristol, Rove, Huckabee, O’Reilly, Cameron, Garrett, Angle, etc. are all generally very good. No, I don’t always agree with them ... but I don’t need to ALWAYS agree with someone to appreciate a balanced approach.

As for the hit pieces on Palin ... apparently some McCain staffers are upset with her, and are talking to the media. Fine. Whatever. I blame the staffers, not the reporters.

These really are non-stories. The election is over ... and Sarah Palin will return to Alaska for a while before coming back into the national political scene. By that time, these stories will be ancient history.

You see, that is the problem, there is no 'balanced approach' there is only right and wrong.
