Yeah, just like Vince McMahon touts prowrestling as sports entertainment. Rupert Murdoch and his FoxNews commander-in-chief Roger Ailes are to news what Vince McMahon is to sports. The difference is that more people might realize they should be skeptical of pro-wrestling than highly opinionated news analysis.
It's pretty sad that in order for me to get decent
coverage of the battle in Fallujah at night I have to
watch Newsworld International and have foreigners give
me the full rundown. We've got too many talking heads
milking the Scott Peterson case for all its worth. I'm
proud to say I haven't the slightest clue what that
case is all about. I'm filtering out that crap just
like I did with 24hr OJ TV.

the pond. Anything's better than watching Bill
O'Reilly spew forth opinion and his hatred of the NY
If FoxNews actually shows news it isn't in the morning
when they've got Fox & Friends, a sitcom where the
airheaded College Republican club members grow up and
get a morning show or at night when you've got
O'Reilly, Hannity & Colmes, and Greta van Susteren
filling your brain full of slop.
Will Australia please take Murdoch back home?

David Brock was a former right-wing spinner and I guess had a change of heart somewhere along the line and knows the seedy underbelly from the inside. I'm not sure if he's totally on the mark, but one begins to question the canard of the "liberal media", at least with Fox"News" and the Washington Times being in existence.
