Peter Grimaldi: What has Fox gotten right? Not much

Regarding “Fox gets it right, tells both sides” (Letters, March 31), let’s see, where to start? The Iraq war, torture, same-sex marriage, IRS scandal, health care repeal? Did I hear someone say Benghazi for the millionth time, with nothing new to say, only speculations?

I’m not so naive to think most corporate news media is not slanted one way or another, but I do know a well-informed person, who knows historical context, should properly discern what is spin and what is not.

Select the news information you want if it makes you feel good, but my mama taught me long ago that just because someone says it doesn’t mean it’s true. It was tough getting through another tiresome defense of Fox News with a straight face.
