4. Ah yes, good old "bothsidesism"

"False balance, also bothsidesism, is a media bias in which journalists present an issue as being more balanced between opposing viewpoints than the evidence supports. Journalists may present evidence and arguments out of proportion to the actual evidence for each side, or may omit information that would establish one side's claims as baseless. False balance has been cited as a cause of misinformation."

They already do a lot of this over on CNN. If they increase it even more, I will definitely not be watching them anymore.
