That's called integrity.

(edit) Wait a second, did you really just post a link proving my point? Thanks.
(edit2) Yes, that's why I have won more cases than I lost. I expected anyone who disagreed with me to point out the times she was wrong and had to admit it as "proof" she's not always right. What you seem to have ignored is that I never claimed she was always right, but that she researches her material, and when she has been wrong admitted it.

In other words, your argument is just that she has more integrity than anyone in the right-wing echo chamber.

(edit3) Well done, you made my argument better than I could have made it. Thanks.

You said she was right. Then you said if she's wrong, she corrects it. Which is it?

I never said she didn't have integrity. She probably has more than most other news anchors.

So, I said she does a better job researching her stuff, and most of the time she's right, not smug. But, on the rare occassions she is wrong, she corrects her mistakes.

What's your problem with that?

MSNBC has a liberal bent, but they basically tell the truth. FOX makes up **** on a regular basis. They are out and out fabricators of NeoCon oriented propaganda. Here is one of my favorites, when they did not like reporters who reported about FOX, they changed their images to make them look strange.

My statement only counts if your "Fox looks after the little people" statement was said without a wink, lol.

It wouldn't greatly surprise me if they altered them, but somehow I doubt they were aired just as you show them. It's likely that these were altered further. The tall forehead thing is a little too obvious, and it looks stretched.

On Wednesday morning's edition of Fox and Friends, the Fox News channel aired altered photos of two New York Times reporters to retaliate against a Times Saturday edition piece which pointed out some "ominous trends" in the show's ratings.

Co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade showed the photos which portrayed Jacques Steinberg with yellow teeth, a wider chin, and big ears, and Times television editor Steven Reddicliffe with the same yellow smile and a receding hairline. The caricatures seem to be done with Adobe Photoshop (tm) tools.

Edit: okay done laughing
