More From the Home of "We Report You Decide"

Fox News is refusing to air a new ad which advocates the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. The ad features Generals from allied nations who argue that allowing gays to serve openly does not diminish anything, and is really a non-issue.
Fox has a right to air or not air whatever ads they want. But it cannot then turn around and argue that the network, as a whole, does not take positions on issues. It is clearly not neutral. Fox cannot argue that the idea of repeal is offensive or problematic for its viewers, either, as Fox host Bill O'Reilly and frequent Fox guest Liz Cheney are both pro-repeal. The latest polling data shows support for repeal of DADT to be above 70%. Clearly some of them watch Fox. Curious.

It hurts to admit it, but you are right on this one, Splash... ;)

Fox cannot claim neutrality on this anymore.

I know it hurts. Hurts so good!
