12. People misunderstand that slogan

Fox News does not claim to be balanced, it claims that the rest of the media has a pervasive liberal/Democratic bias that needs to be balanced out by their 24/7 shilling for the Republican Party. It's classic cult behavior - tell the brainwashed acolytes that everything that comes from "outside the compound" is part of the conspiracy to suppress the truth, and that only approved sources of information can be trusted. It's also a feature of totalitarian regimes - given their use of socialism as a boogeyman, it's ironic how much Fox Noise has in common with Pravda (the capitalist running dogs are trying to bring down our glorious Soviet republics etc etc).
