Fox News is right... wing that is

We've all said that Fox News is biased to the right of center for a long time. They don't even deny it, they just make up some weird logic about SCLM and CNN and how there needs to be balance to the force and whatnot. But this is just too slanted. Josh Marshall followed a Fox News story on their Web site with made up Kerry quotes. To wit:

"It's about the Supreme Court. Women should like me! I do manicures," Kerry said.
Now, I'm not an expert on journalism ethics by any means, but making up quotes and publishing them as a news is bad. Josh has the whole story; he blogged the hell out of it until Fox News sent him an apology and a retraction. One of the many reasons I admire him.
