"and if you step out and ask tough questions, you're somehow seen as a partisan now — even if it's a substantive question and even if it's a fair question."

This happens on both sides. However, the right has painted everything Non-Fox as being liberal. And they probably believe that. Fox has "trained" their viewers that centrist coverage is liberal.
They have moved the bar.

When "what do you read to get your world view" become gotcha journalism, something is wrong.

"It's very difficult when you work for an organization where the opinion page is on the front page,"

Exactly. News is news and opinion is opinion. Lets call it what it is.
Fox NEWS, has more opinion than news. And everything prime time slanted hard right.

Generally, the middle of the day Fox is reasonable coverage.

I just detest when "journalists" only report stories negative to the other side. Or, go into EVERY story only looking for ways to bash the other side.

Look at how the non-Fox networks covered the campaign "gaffes":

The 21 ABC, CBS and NBC evening news stories covering Mitt Romney’s European trip emphasized “diplomatic blunders,” “gaffes” or “missteps” (86 percent) versus substantive foreign policy issues (14 percent). Balanced journalism?

Regarding the secretly-recorded video of Mitt Romney talking to donors about the 47% of Americans who don’t pay income taxes, the networks hyped it like a sensational sex scandal. For the three days, the ABC, NBC, CBS had 42 stories on the tape, nearly 90 minutes of coverage.

None of Barack Obama’s gaffes had anything like that coverage. For example, after the President in a June 8 press conference declared that “the private sector is doing fine,” the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts gave it just one night’s coverage, then basically dropped the story. Balanced journalism? The article from the Associated Press (part of the "mainstream media") is just a "puff piece" of journalism touting the Obama perspective.
