    OK, I take that back. Last night I had done a google search focusing on the
    keyword "Fox and Friends" to see if there were any sites which offered a
    look at that particular show and could not come up with much. I just tried a
    quick search using ["Fox News" "Roger Ailes" "Richard Nixon" "George Bush"
    and "Rush Limbaugh"] as a string and there were more sites.
