A Dec. 22 NewsBusters post by Noel Sheppard slavers over a column by Mike Rosen, "Denver, Colorado’s most popular radio talk show host," in which he suggests that CBS "go conservative" with its evening newscast and insists that Fox News "is more fair and balanced." Sheppard practically falls over himself with praise, citing a "marvelous payoff pitch" and how he "fabulously concluded" his point. Sheppard himself concludes: "Spectucular job, Mike. I couldn’t agree with you more fervently!"
Alas, reality is much different than Sheppard's view of it. As Colorado Media Matters points out, Brit Hume (who Rosen praised for his "gravitas") and Fox News have regularly eschewed fairness and balance, and the broadcast networks Rosen criticized for being too "liberal" have at times demonstrated a conservative slant.
And while it's easy to conclude by inference though Sheppard doesn't explicitly state it, Rosen is a conservative radio host, and Colorado Media Matters has also complied quite a dossier on the misleading and false claims he has made.
