Fair, balanced, but not transparent

Fox News should mention that the lead author of the study that showed Special Report to be the most balanced news program on television is a paid consultant for their network. (via Discerning Texan.) (I'm a regular viewer of the show, by the way.) It's a bit embarrassing to gloat about the study's results without informing your viewership of that minor detail.

Transparency should be Journalism 101; it's not now, but I'll bet it will be in about 20 years.
