Calling A Spade, A Spade


This "War with Fox News" is not a war. That is what the Fox folks are calling it because they feel assailed, but that is just the truth stinging them that they feel.

The White House says they're attitude towards Fox is that it has a point of view. That its not so much interested in finding truth as it is in supporting its agenda. Like a political operation.

Fox claims this accusation is baseless.

The evidence says something else:

I have a lot of friends who love Fox. One actually told me he likes it because someone is finally speaking from his point of view when (in his opinion) there had been no media outlet speaking for him in his whole life. That is the genius of Fox. "Give 'em what they want".

As a business model, it can't be challenged. But lets not pretend that their business is news. That's all I'm saying.
