Why the latest Faux News Foible is so pathetic:

Biased journalism can be worthwhile. Fox News likes to maintain the fiction that it’s completely impartial — insulting even its own viewers’ intelligence — but the network’s obvious partisanship is only part of the problem.

The more painful shortcoming, as Orr explained, is that Fox News can’t even do biased journalism well. It sets embarrassingly low standards — literally running using Republican Party talking points as an on-air script, and then apologizing for the typo, was a unique humiliation — and then fails to even try to meet them.
