This is totally wrong. This is not just an issue of, "Oh, it's not company policy." This is Fox openly rejecting standard Journalism Ethics. It really amuses he hearing non-journalists opining on how Fox's massive breaches in journalism ethics are not a big deal (in your defense, you would have to be completely ignorant to those concepts to even tolerate watching Fox for a space of greater than 5 consecutive minutes without smashing your TV with a hammer).
A more apt comparison would be an accounting office that doesn't adhere to the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Or a sherriff's office that when confronted with a police brutality claim, their official stance is "Who cares? What's the big deal anyway?"
God, I really hope news does die off in this country. It wouldn't be so much a tragedy as much as putting the once proud institution based on candor, ethics, morals, and accountability, out of its misery.
Hannity is a journalist? Not according to Fox http://www.talkleft....8/20/13818/7285

Keith was suspended for giving money, and yes he is back now, but wait what about Sean Hannity?
He gave $5,000 to Michelle Bachman, but on Fox, I guess you dont even have to hide your bias.
Here is a video for you Maddow haters, of her telling the truth, which R-Wingers seem to have a problem with.
link to Hannity giving money, but no suspension for him? All the goons on the Olbermann thread thought it was great he was suspended for being bias, why dont u apply that same logic to Hannity?
Once again, just stating the facts!
Two of the biggest dickholes in news media. The fact you can defend either is just plain sad. Just stating the facts.
