"CNN's top war correspondent, Christiane Amanpour, says that the press muzzled itself during the Iraq war. And, she says CNN 'was intimidated' by the Bush administration and Fox News, which 'put a climate of fear and self-censorship.'

Fox News spokeswoman Irena Briganti said of Amanpour's comments: "Given the choice, it's better to be viewed as a foot soldier for Bush than a spokeswoman for al-Qaeda." "
No doubt. There were some very powerful people pulling some thick strings. This is actually from a long time ago.

The Fox quote is enlightening, as they show their complete lack of a history of, or a dedication to, impartial news coverage. They never even existed during 'equal time' laws, and are biased from top to bottom. Producer to news line.
