"[CNN's] Don Lemon. He has opinions everywhere, he comes on air, he's supposed to be an objective reporter," Myers said.
"They have Al Sharpton on MSNBC, he's not objective – he goes out there, he agitates, he aggravates, and then comes on air and he agitates again.
"I love Fox News Channel, but Fox News Channel has a bias, too. Their bias is they want to change the subject, they don't want to talk about what's going on in Ferguson . . . they want to talk about black-on-black crime."
