Fox News inadvertently admits it's a partisan channel in its criticism of Media Matters

People Liking People is politically neutral so we're not necessary taking sides but we thought this was funny. Today on Fox News, anchor Steve Doocy started off a segment questioning whether it was legal for Media Matters to file as a 501(3)(c). Steve Doocy and his guest proclaim that it isn't, and their reasoning is that Media Matters goes after Fox News more than any other network. So why is that a problem? Well, 501(3)(c)s aren't allowed to engage in partisan activities favoring one side or another. In calling Media Matters' Fox attack a parisan effort though, they're essentially admitting that they themselves are partisan - not the "fair and balanced" network they often claim to be.
