fair and balanced

Fair and Balanced is the motto of Fox News Network which is known for its editorial stance as being anything but fair and balanced. In this sense, anything that claims to be "fair and balanced" should be checked for spin.

In general, attemping to be fair and balanced means:

A statement which is from individual point of view, i.e. an essay, can be fair and balanced, e.g. Because You Are Stupid by Craig Hubley, but that is not a requirement of any such essay. Fairness may be more a matter of fair warning in cases where a view is both backed by facts, and extremely damaging.
