    Is The Fox News Channel The Mouthpiece For The GOP?-mediasluts-jpg
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    This morning the GOP exclusively released it's Stop Hillary vldeo to Fox. I'll add that I don't think Fox does the GOP any favors by propping up some of the silliest candidates like Herman Cain and Michele Bachmann while pretty much ignoring Jon Huntsmann who might have beaten Obama. So its a mixed bag.

    I don't deny that. It's also worth noting that the station, much like MSNBC, provides a stepping-stone for ex-political advisers to work in private media.

    But David Frum was very much onto something when he noted that the GOP has become responsive to developments in Fox News's narratives and their anchors.
    He made the argument, somewhat exaggerated, that because of the overwhelming numbers of viewers Fox has, the GOP was being held hostage to Fox News.
    "We all of us know down here that politics is a tough game. And I don't think there's any point in being Irish if you don't know that the world is going to break your heart eventually."-Daniel Patrick Moynihan, December 5, 1963

    Does playing cards with Kenny Rogers get old fast?



    of course they are, many media outlets have bias. Fox news caters to the conservative crowd as part of their business model, it's no secret.

    Fox news is just like any other station in that it panders to its demographic which is extremely lucrative . If parading around candidates and distorting facts get it ratings it's going to continue doing so.

    If you look at the graph by the Left Wing version of WND it says "contenders" not "candidates". Those words are not synonymous.
