How is that even relevant to the claim of fair and balanced?

And if you do not think they are, why the heck are you watching them? Have you nothing else better to do?

Did CNN or MSNBC air live coverage every time that Bush spoke?

Liberals think if you don't support their view, you're biased. Its like telling a fish about air.

Obama shouldn't be addressing the police shootings. They are ongoing investigations.
Besides, everytime he opens his yap about them, he makes the racial aspect of the issue worse.

I'd have to agree that Obama shouldn't comment on the shooting much beyond 'Let all remain calm and let the investigation complete before we draw any conclusions'.

Yeah except their viewers are sick and tired of seeing the presidents face and want to hear more about Clinton.

The president responding to two shootings is breaking news. Why didn't fox cover it?

Why is it breaking news?

Clinton is running for President. Obama is simply sharing his opinion on a matter that his Justice Department is going to have to look into. What was breaking about that?

Why doesn't the mainstream media cover it whenever a black officer kills a white person?

It's news where I live.

I said mainstream media. Your local news may cover it but the national mainstream media does not. They cover what gets the most ratings and it's good for ratings to cover white officers killing black people, especially when a lot of the mainstream media has a liberal slant to begin with. In many of these cases investigations, even my Obama's henchmen, don't show enough evidence to charge the officers. Now I'm not condoning excessive use of force but maybe if these people weren't bad dudes to begin with they wouldn't be in the position they find themselves in. We seem to live in a growing liberal society where being a criminal, resisting arrest, and taunting the police is OK but the police damn well better not over-react to split second tense situations where they could be dead themselves. I'm not saying that there are no bad apples. They need to be dealt with, hopefully before these incidents happen instead of after.
