This Republican Senator Isn't Exactly A Fan Of Fox News

Republican Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn called out some shows on Fox News, deeming them as “totally not fair and totally not balanced."

He continued to say, “The truth is somewhere in between the three," in reference to
 MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News.

“There are certain shows on Fox I can’t watch,” Coburn said. “Because they’re totally not fair and totally not balanced. I want all the information in which I can make the best decision.”

Buzzfeed reports, "Coburn was speaking as part of his farewell town hall tour Wednesday at the southeast campus of Tulsa Community College. The senator is retiring this year; he is currently being treated for a recurrence of prostate cancer. Coburn was responding to a question about how he would “fix” media to focus on less superficial things if he was in charge of it. He said he also reads the New York Times and Wall Street Journal saying “the real problem is we’ve lost the professionalism of journalism.”"
