Let's compare and contrast two different headlines for the exact same article:
"Obama shares dreams for his kids in book on 13 Americans"

"Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Defeated U.S. General"

If you didn't follow the links, I'll spoil the punchline for you: The first headline is from USA Today. The second headline was the one run by Fox, which then posts a brief excerpt of the USA Today article, and then provides a link to that same first article. For added fun, that second headline was "corrected for historical accuracy" - the original headline was "Obama Praises Indian Chief Who Killed U.S. General".

That's what counts as "Fair and Balanced" news, apparently.
