Fox News drops 'Fair and Balanced' slogan: report

FOX news drops sloganFox News is dropping its legendary trademark slogan “Fair and Balanced,” New York Magazine reported Wednesday.

A Fox News spokesperson confirmed to the magazine that the network is no longer using the slogan, but that the decision won’t impact programming or editorial decisions.

The catchphrase, coined by late Fox founder Roger Ailes, has been used at Fox since its founding in 1996.

TVNL Comment:  We have ridiculed the FOX News slogan for years.  News cannot, ever, be fair or balanced.  News is not up for discussion or debate..  Journalists bear the responsibility of reporting facts and verified information to the public.  Commentary and opinion are one thing.  NEWS is another.  Let's hope FOX learns a lesson with this change and earns some credibility.  Don't bet the ranch on it.
