Once in a while, a high-profile Republican will slip and accidentally concede what everyone already knows: the Fox News has a political agenda. Here’s a coffee-shop encounter in Iowa City yesterday with Mitt Romney:

A woman asked the former governor of Massachusetts: What can we do to stop the newspaper and television from attacking the president?

Romney replied: “It’s amazing isn’t it?

“Well, fortunately you can change the channels,” he said, “and there are channels like FOX that gives a different perspective, and you can also go on the Internet and talk radio.”

Wait, Fox News isn’t “fair and balanced”? It’s not the “we-report-you-decide” network? Shocking.

Can you help us out?
