Topic: NewsBusters
Here's the MRC spin on the Dick Cheney-Brit Hume interview, as described in a Feb. 16 NewsBusters post by Brent Baker (and repeated in a Feb. 16 CyberAlert): Other journalists are jealous that Hume got the interview, so they're taking shots at the "integrity" of Hume and Fox News (never mind that there's copious evidence of the conservative-friendly slant of both Hume and Fox News).

Baker also implies further anti-Fox bias because some broadcast networks cropped video cliips to hide the Fox News logo (though they did credit Fox News with a line of text). Baker should demonstrate that this practice applies only to Fox News clips before suggesting bias. Or jealousy.

UPDATE: Added Media Matters links to articles showing Hume's and Fox News' conservative bias.
