Fox News Is Not "Fair and Balanced"
By Larry Klayman

During the 1990s, after I conceived and founded Judicial Watch on July 29, 1994, I was initially one of the darlings of Fox News and its creator Roger Ailes. Indeed, Judicial Watch came into being around the same time as the network, which was then touted as a "fair and balanced" conservative media source.
Given my Judicial Watch's hard-hitting cases in the 1990's to bring about justice for the many alleged crimes and scandals of Bill and Hillary Clinton, my appearances on Fox News were frequent and highly newsworthy. During these prime-time appearances before such hosts as Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity and his then sidekick Alan Colmes, and others such as Matt Drudge, I would frequently show videos of depositions I had taken of persons in the Clinton administration. This not only promoted the work that I was doing at Judicial Watch, but served to help launch Fox News, which was relatively small in viewership at that time — incredibly with only about 200 to 250 thousand viewers on its top show, "The O'Reilly Factor."
As a result, the audience could see and judge firsthand the testimony and demeanor of those in and around the Clinton administration, such as James Carville, George Stephanopoulos, Mack McLarty, and Linda Tripp and thus further one of the tag lines of Fox News: "We Report and You Decide."
