Point-of-View vs. Outright Lying

Yesterday I posted on the impossibility of achieving the mythical "balanced" newscast. Today though, I am reminded that we need to distinguish between a point of view and outright lying. I have no problem with Fox News operating with the mentality that they are correcting some kind of left-wing bias (I think they are incorrect in assessing that bias, but it's not my place to say what their approach to news ought to be). What does concern me is not so much when their token liberals are marginalized and weak like Alan Colmes, it's when they lie outright to advance their political agenda.
