No fan of Fox News

Your October 2 issue arrived in the same day's mail as my subscription renewal notice.

Your October 2 issue arrived in the same day's mail as my subscription renewal notice.

After reading your Media Analysis, "Fox News sets the tone in cable news race," it was easy for me, an initial subscriber of PRWeek, to trash the renewal.

I am appalled that a trade publication covering the PR field would extol the virtues
of a network whose "fair and balanced" news has become a running joke even to its most ardent fans.

I've always thought that PR was in the business of truth-telling. Fox is in the business
of blatant propaganda. That's precisely why viewers of a like mind love it so.

Please, don't peddle the old saw that the other networks deliver "liberal-infused news."
Has Erica Iacono ever heard Katie Couric, Charles Gibson, Brian Williams, or anybody
else at CBS, ABC, or NBC engage in the kind of bomb-throwing invective that is the trademark of the Bill O'Reillys of the world?

Maybe your next analysis should be about that fine public servant Matt Drudge.
