As I discussed below the Democrats did the only intelligent thing to do and backed out of the presidential debate to be sponsored by the FOX Propaganda tabloid. As I said the Democrats should not do anything that would legitimize the modern day equivalent of Pravda. Well the wingers have had a meltdown:
EDITORIAL: Meltdown over Fox
Hard-core liberals can't stand the Fox News Channel. Passing a television that's tuned to the conservative favorite forces many of them to close their eyes, cover their ears and scream, "La la la la la la la la la!" Then they dash to their computers and fire off 2,500 e-mails condemning the outlet, none of which are ever read.OK, let's take a look at this.
But liberals' aversion to Fox News has finally gone over the top. The Nevada Democratic Party had agreed to let the right-tilting network co-sponsor, of all things, an August debate in Reno between Democratic presidential candidates. Party officials were serious about drawing national attention to the state's January presidential caucus, the country's second in the 2008 nominating process. What better way for the party to reach conservative and "values" voters who might consider changing allegiances?
- First we have this: "right-tilting network". FOX is not a right tilting network it is a propaganda arm of the Bush White House. Of course that is when it's not cable's answer to the National Enquirer.
- And then we have this gem: "What better way for the party to reach conservative and "values" voters who might consider changing allegiances". Now the only people who watch FOX are the brain dead Bush/Cheney cultists and the lunatic neocons. Not a lot of votes to be had in that crowd.
