No, but I play one on television.

Faux Noise will report objectively, about as many times as a blind squirrel
finds an acorn in the deep woods.
I don't know about you, but my time is limited. That doesn't mean I only get
my news from the left. I do try to strike some balance. When I hear the
source, I try to verify and think whether the presented fact makes sense. I
would give my eye teeth to hear a debate between Rachael Maddow and Bill
O'Reilly. (Although he has been invited several times, O'Reilly has never
accepted an invitation to debate.)
Interestingly, Karl Rove's divorce got less coverage on Fox than Tiger's
problems.
