Obama’s speech proves that Fox News has won!

The great James Taranto debates with himself about what word Obama and the Democrats will use to push their budget, which will include tax increases. Taranto writes:

The Washington Post reports that Obama will give a speech tomorrow at George Washington University “promoting a bipartisan approach pioneered by an independent presidential commission” whose recommendations he had ignored until now…

….Our guess is that the mantra will be “balance” rather than “fairness”…

…Whereas “fairness” is a readily identifiable code word for socialism, “balance”–as in “a balanced budget”–connotes living within one’s means.

If Obama and the Democrats have to choose between fair and balanced, clearly Fox News’ fair and balanced motto has already won.

  1. Here in Venezuela the phrase is “justo y balanciado”. the same thing. I have never understood how news can be fair. News is neither fair or unfair. News is news, period.
