That poster has already been shown that it was a rosy "projected" surplus that wouldn't come to fruition due to a number of factors including off budget expenses. However, that poster is more interested in lying for partisan gain.

If you take him at his word he was a registered Democrat for over 20 years, while working for ABC and NBC in Washington DC, because he had to be to be in that role. (If you take him at his word that implies the media is biased to the left generally speaking)

He claims that he had voted for people in both major parties.

On October 11, 2006, The Washington Post reported that Wallace had been a registered Democrat for more than two decades. Wallace explained his party affiliation in terms of pragmatism, saying that being a Democrat is the only feasible means of participating in the political process in heavily Democratic Washington, DC. He maintained that he had voted for candidates from both major parties in the past.[32]

We are now going to determine if newscasters are credible based on voter affiliation, same for judges?

I wonder if Faux News was more fair and balanced during their earliest days. So, counting their earliest days as newsreels shown on movie screens, Fake News turns 100 this year. Earliest origin story or creation date I found for Fox News was them doing stories in Aug.

I am not sure if CNN (Faux News) was more fair and balanced during their earliest days. Probably not.

I remember years ago when Hannity had a partner named Alan Colmes who represented the liberal side of the equation and worked to counter-balance Hannity's right wing views. I actually enjoyed that show. Then Colmes left and it was all Hannity. I couldn't watch it after that.
