Bending over backwards to be “Fair and Balanced”

It is amazing how the local news has taken “fair and balanced” to another level. They ask a question about a proposed budget on their facebook page. 33 disagree 1 agree. They feature the 1 agreement and 1 disagreement. No mention that the majority of the people they asked disagreed. What would they do if no one agreed? Would they manufacture a person to bring an opposing view? The goal to be fair and balanced or not to offend has gone overboard. It is skewing reality.
