unfair + off balance

Shep Smith Volunteers to Be Fox News’ “Lack of Balance” Fall Guy

Whether the White House picking a fight with Fox News was a smart decision is up for debate. (Not up for debate: FNC’s ratings spike since Team Obama spoke meanly of Roger Ailes’ network.) But even Shepard “The Gay One” Smith can admit when his employer’s “fair and balanced” mantra is, well, neither. In a interview segment between correspondent Shannon Bream and Republican New Jersey gubernatorial hopeful Chris Christie, Shep points out that they didn’t also have a talk with Christie’s opponent, the gay marriage loving Jon Corzine. Shep blames his producers; they’ll probably blame Corzine.
