    And surprise! Fox News is biased against same sex marriage. It's a topic that people feel strongly about and have trouble being unbiased.

    @armed_liberal LOL - really, got any facts to back that statement up or are you just going to fall back on the boring and old "Faux News" rhetoric of the left? Just askin'.

    @Tralee
    Google it... You will find several recent examples from Peter Johnson to Fox and Friends reactions. Oh.. You probably think Google is Left Wing based.

    @Tralee Until they saw the polls that show a majority of U.S. citizens support equal rights, they were against it. Now Fox is "for" same-sex marriage except for some confusion from those who didn't get the memo. But better late than never.
    "Fox's muted criticism of Obama's support for marriage equality is a far cry from how the network has typically dealt with the issue of same-sex marriage. Less than a year ago, Fox Nation described Obama's support for marriage equality as a declaration of 'WAR ON MARRIAGE.' And Fox's Bill O'Reilly has a long history of warning that same-sex marriage would lead to marriage with ducks, turtles, and dolphins."

    You are correct sir. Now you understand my opinion on anything that is a threat to the constitution. Any part of it. When you are right you stand your ground.

    I see the push for gay marriage as a civil rights movement. What if in covering stories about racial discrimination, the newspaper made extra sure to give voice and equal time to bigots? is that being "unbiased?" Or is it promoting intolerance and ignorance? I think it's the latter.

    Every newspaper has an editorial policy!. Another piercing glimpse in the obvious, The Wall Street Journal has a Conservative editorial policy. Whatever happened to the concept that the reader maybe be able to discern fact from opinion and formulate their own conclusion?

    So this is news, how? Most media have a very liberal lean because most news folks have a left lean. No surprise there. I'm straight, but, SO WHAT if they are biased in favor of gay marriage? Gays are PEOPLE. People are entitled to equal rights under the law. Now, if the Washington Post was biased in favor of PEDOPHILES, then I'd have a problem with that.

    Are you kidding me? The media other than Fox news is totally in bed with anyone or anything that goes contrary to the Bible. They are Christianphobic with an agenda of censoring Christianity from our nation and replacing it with secular humanism. These are very scary activists and a threat to America's freedoms.

    Actually, there may not be enough bias in the media.

    Most media, no matter what the question, seek out opposing views in order to seem fair and balanced.

    But slavish adherence to that principle doesn't allow for the fact that sometimes the opposing view is reflecting an agenda of its own, or just plain nuts.

    I cite the tobacco propaganda war, or the climate change debate.

    I thought she did an excellent job.

    Her sin was not letting Romney make statements that were contrary to fact and get away with it.

    Why didn't she harass Obama, you ask?

    Because he didn't do anything quite so egregious, just the normal BS one expects from any politician.

    @harold_lloyd-- Exsqueeze me? Are you actually trying to say that Candy Crowley's covering for Obama when he made the claim that the Obama Administration (to include the State Department of the Executive Branch) wasn't trying to blame the Benghazi attacks on a youtube video isn't biased?

    When use words like 'covering', you already staked out your position.
    No, it wasn't biased.
    At the time, and still, there is plenty of confusion about exactly what happened and why.
    If you don't know that already, then you must be a Foxhound.

    Post is one of the Papers that publishes Obama press releases and acts like they are News. Intellectual dishonest and journalistically insignificant. Yawn

    Depends entirely on the media. The lower the mental capacity of its viewers or readers the greater the bigotry. Apparently the Washington Post is in favour of equality. A heinous crime amongst the drooling mouth breathers.

    if you don't like what the Post publishes, then don't buy the paper or read it online. either that, or start your own business and complete with it.

    Why should it be fair and balanced? Those against gay marriage are against equal rights which is a foundation of our society. The opposing side has yet to provide any rational, worth while argument against it, other than some ridiculous religious ones. If the opposition has no merit ignore them. It's like giving the KKK equal access to argue for civil rights or slavery.

    Duh!!! Other than Fox, are the Obama and liberal channels. Whatever, who friggin really cares? People are going to do what people are going to do. I am not gay but as long as they do not try to mandate their gayness laws on me I'm OK. I worry about myself, not who gets front page. Why was this even important is beside me. Must have been a slow, slow, day.

    This is like saying the Washington Post is for ending slavery, the right thing to do should be biased. This is not an issue of the budget, this is basic human rights in a country based on freedom and equality.
