Fox News should not be promoting the Tea Party. As Media
Matters points out, many of the anchors of Fox News are

I know Cavuto and Hannity fall under category of "opinion"
journalism. However, just because one falls under category of
a opinion doesn't mean it's ethical to actively promote a

if MSNBC or CNN actively promoted the Iraq War protests
the way Fox News is promoting the Tea Party protests?
Rupert Murdoch himself said that Fox News should not be promoting
the Tea Party:
Fox News' promotion of the Tea Party protests is activism
journalism. I don't like activism journalism when it comes
from the Right or Left.
