POV?[edit]

Re: my recent revert: the section added seems very POV to me, arguing that Special Report is biased rather than presenting both sides. The section of the article in its current stance marked "Bias" covers much of the same material. If the deleted material is to be returned to the article, I suggest it should go here, and that the wording needs to be changed substantially so as to present a critical view rather than endorse it.

Mort Kondracke[edit]

I don't think categorizing him as "right-of-centre" is fair, and smells of bias. He was on Nixon's enemies list and is a Democrat.

Mort fancies himself as center-left, but clearly a moderate. I could not characterize him as left or right. It just depends. --Akc2543 (talk) 04:42, 17 December 2008 (UTC)

Bias section[edit]

The FDR-related accusations are sloppy and don't contain context, and only amount to namecalling. The section does not show what is being referred to, only throwing in a few links to Media Matters and namedropping left-leaning pundits. This should be brought to WP standards. Sadistik 08:41, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Agreed. The current biased section is so messy it'd be best off being completely removed. I can't even follow it. If no one objects, I'll remove it in the coming days. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Cs92 (talkcontribs) 13:28, 5 September 2007 (UTC)

Removed as per this discussion. Arzel (talk) 17:17, 27 January 2008 (UTC)

Hume Retirement[edit]

While this is not proposed heading, we have to be flexible with this as a replacement has not been announced. he stated on the O'Reilly Factor that his last day was Dec. 23. I added the content about his retirement, but could not add that without citation. I can add that once the video has been posted. --Akc2543 (talk) 04:45, 17 December 2008 (UTC)
