Network news is a joke.
Is Fox News balanced? No. Is it more balanced then network news on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN or PBS? Yes. For news pundits like Andrea Mitchell, it is all about who's in the White House and whether or not you are liberal or conservative in your personal politics. here's part of the proof.
It All Depends On Who’s in the White House
“It’s terrible that Saddam Hussein is butchering his people, but the United States simply cannot send in the Marines to take on every dictator. And, while the Bush administration likes to brag about the 30 nations in their coalition, it will be the United States that does most of the fighting in Iraq. I fear this is the wrong war at the wrong time and in the wrong place.”
— Andrea Mitchell talking about the Iraq war on Meet the Press, April 2003.
“This intervention could wind up being Barack Obama’s finest hour. His intentions are pure — this is a humanitarian mission, not blood for oil. We’ve got a coalition with us [six nations], the United Nations, the Arab League. And the diplomacy has truly been masterful — future military planners will surely use Obama’s Libya template as a guide.”
— NBC chief foreign correspondent Andrea Mitchell on Meet the Press, April 2011.
