more on transparency

A lot has been said about journalistic motivation of echo-chamber networks like Fox News, where the lines between the “programming” opinion side and the news reporting become badly blurred.  Fox will argue that it provides a counter-balance to the mainstream press, and one can argue that MSNBC has become a mirror-image on the left.  What is the journalistic value of a Fox reporter, Griff Jenkins, acting as both promoter and reporter of a political rally?  See the video on a site called Media Matters that tracks such examples (see link under “news analysis sites” too).
