Fox News is fair and balanced like a biased elephant riding a see-saw with a blind hamster

And I’ve got the map fail to prove it:


As covered by Failure Magazine:

When Fox News makes a “mistake” in one of its on-screen graphics, there’s usually a clear agenda in evidence. But on Monday, Fox’s Live Desk presented a map of the Middle East with Egypt taking Iraq’s place between Syria and Iran. Other than not wanting to remind viewers how the Bush Administration mucked things up in Iraq, there seems to be little reason why Fox would be motivated to wipe the country off the map.

Yep, yep, yep.  There’s no legend on the map, but it also seems like they labeled Lebanon the same way they labeled the West Bank.  I dunno, I’ve given up watching the news entirely in favor of my own investigative reporting.  But let me tell you, if I was to go back to mainstream news – I’d take the The Onion over Fox News – at least they mean it when they mess with geography.
