Check out that Horse's Mouth!

Scott Norvell, London Chief of FOX News, writing in the European Version of the Wall Street Journal: (via Slate)
Even we at Fox News manage to get some lefties on the air occasionally, and often let them finish their sentences before we club them to death and feed the scraps to Karl Rove and Bill O'Reilly. And those who hate us can take solace in the fact that they aren't subsidizing Bill's bombast; we payers of the BBC license fee don't enjoy that peace of mind.

Fox News is, after all, a private channel and our presenters are quite open about where they stand on particular stories. That's our appeal. People watch us because they know what they are getting. The Beeb's institutionalized leftism would be easier to tolerate if the corporation was a little more honest about it.

I'm glad someone from FOX has finally gone on the record admitting that they are heavily slanted to the political right - even though everyone knows it. Admitting you have a problem is the first step towards recovery.

Next, find the higher power. Someone page Ailes.
