Bed bug infestationForget championing fair and balanced reporting. Fox News has other problems on its hands. The New York Times reports that Fox News’ Manhattan newsroom is infested with bedbugs:

In an interview on Monday, Warren Vandeveer, senior vice president for operations and engineering at Fox News, said the cable channel had realized it had a problem a few weeks ago, when an employee “caught a bug and showed it to us.” An exterminator determined that the incursion was limited to a “very small area in the newsroom.”

As Media Bistro’s TV Newser reported back in November, the broadcaster has battled the bugs before.
