Irony Alert: Palin Claims Public Likes Fox News Because Actual News Is Biased

No one ever said Sarah Palin was the brightest crayon in the box. There's a reason for that, of course, which became painfully obvious today as the half-term governor of Alaska joined the Fox News team.

With a straight face and no sense of irony, Palin explained that the people just love Fox News because it's so fair and balanced, unlike the biased actual news media.

Of course.

As Stephen Colbert has proclaimed while channeling the American Right, reality has a well-known liberal bias. 

To put it another way, the mainstream media reports facts, while Fox and the conservative media reports news that people already agree with, factual or not. 

That may make conservative viewers happy (the real Fox objective being profits, not truth), but it's hardly fair or balanced, a slogan so warped as to be meaningless.
