You gotta love the faux outrage, this time from CNN’s Rick Sanchez over a Fox News ad calling out his network for not covering the teabag activities in DC.
Of course Sanchez is correct, Fox “News” is blatantly biased and stretches the truth a “teeny” bit to fit their agenda, duh! How many so-called news networks can claim ownership of a political protest march of any kind but come on Rick, look in a mirror sometime. Cable news, especially in primetime, has become nothing more than partisan political theater with Fox on the far right, MSNBC on the far left and your little network chiming in quietly somewhere to the right of MSNBC.
Many know the biases and watch their network of choice all while knowing that what is being said should be taken with a grain of salt. Unfortunately I said many. Where things have gone terribly wrong in this country is when people start hanging on every word being spoken by the radio and cable news talking heads believing it is the gospel according to Beck/Olbermann/Limbaugh. That is a subject covered here almost daily.
So Rick get over it. Cable news is nothing more than entertainment coming in a step or two above “Dancing With the Stars“. Fox has buxom blondes in short skirts doing their best Sharon Stone imitation during the day with Beck and O’Reilly riling up the troops at night, MSNBC has the Olbermann/Maddow primetime twosome, and you guys have the dapper Anderson Cooper and the wacko Lou Dobbs.
It ain’t news Mr Sanchez it’s partisan entertainment with a little news thrown in from time to time which is why I watch Comedy Central. At least they get the joke…
