Biased media results in ill-informed voters

It was encouraging to learn that a liberal letter writer listens to Fox News -- fair, balanced and unafraid.

I'm sure that Juan Williams, Allan Colmes, Mara Liasson, Kirsten Powers and Bob Bechel are surprised to learn they are scripted with what to say by a management immersed in right-wing ideology.

Further, it is interesting to note that Fox News was the only media entity to dig into what actually happened in Benghazi on Sept. 11, when terrorists murdered the ambassador and three other Americans. Learning the truth behind these attacks and when the White House became aware of the facts of that terrible evening is the right of all Americans.

In the closing days of the election, the president directed a major question to the voters, "Whom do you trust?" If the media had done their job, those voters who are truly concerned about trusting our country's leader would have taken into consideration the information developed by the media when they cast their ballots.

Is the liberal media of this country driven by a philosophy of "the end justifies the means"?
