Fair and balanced.
War makes money for Fox, too. The more exciting the story, the more people will tune in.
It's terrifying how easy it is to whip up war fervor in this country:
-- Congress is owned by the corporations that profit from war.
-- Nobody is afraid that Syria will attack our homeland in return.
-- Our all-volunteer army is like our favorite football team. We can send them off to play another game while we watch on TV without fear that we ourselves, or our children, will be drafted against our will as cannon fodder.
