So is Fox still running with this whole "fair and balanced" schtick? You can hardly argue anything but the opposite now that this story has broken.

Let's just put the shoe on the other foot, mkay? Had MSNBC, or CBS even, decided to turn down the freakin' President of the United States for air time just because they were sick of pre-empting life-changing shows like "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?" or "Don't Forget the Lyrics!", we would have heard about it for weeks to come a la Rush and Bill.

Gotta hand it to Fox for staying true to their belief of feeding the masses all the bullshit they can digest. Apparently, when there is a lack of crap to shovel you just take your ball and go home.
*note: I realize that they also chose not to run one of Bush's speeches in November of 2001. I'm sure he didn't have anything important to say two months after 9/11 either. "American Idol" or an update on the biggest national tragedy of the decade? what to do, what to do...
