    And, as usual, Coulter provides incisive analysis of the model for success of Fox News:

    Fox News isn’t conservative (despite liberals repeating that to themselves over and over again). But it does promote something liberals fear more than anything other than the FBI being able to see the porn sites they’ve visited: debate. What really distinguished Fox News is that its prime-time lineup is predicated on conservatives and liberals debating, which regularly results in liberals being trounced.

    For obvious reasons, the MSM’s primary goal is to prevent debate from ever happening. Their idea of “debate” was in evidence on the April 22, 2007, edition of NBC’s Meet the Press, in which four media elites bemoaned the failure of new gun-control measures after the Virginia Tech shootings and argued about how the Democrats might be able to slip new gun-control laws past Americans. Not one panelist opposed gun-control laws. Exerpts:

    MR. RUSSERT. And yet neither party seemed to be very enthusiastic this week,…about gun control
    MR. MEACHAM: No, and I think you saw what the Democrats—there was a lot of kind of deafening silence, in a way, on the gun issue most of the week.
    MS. DORIS KEARNS GOODWIN: You know, it seems to me, though, that the Democrats are misreading history when they blame the 2000 election on [anti-]gun control strength,
    MR. DAVID GREGORY. Keeping guns out of the hands of those who are mentally unstable seems like an obvious area to bring in the NRA, to bring in the public policy folks, politicians.
    MR. WILLIAMS: Right, well, the Virginia attorney general’s office is already looking at whether the Virginia law needs to be changed.

    a. Having had complete hegemonic control of the entire media for forty , fifty years, and now suddenly, these tiny little inroads being made by a single cable news station, talk radio, and of course, the wonderful world of the Internet- and they’re having a public breakdown. I mean, look at the stream of invective at Fox News.

    b. The prospect of open debate with conservatives throws the mainstream media into a hissy fit that rivals an Alec Baldwin phone call to his daughter.

    You realize that you only say those words because they told you to say them.

    I hope that you also realize that they are just as biased as any of the other networks...just in the other direction.

    Republican strategy: Claim that the news is liberally biased in order to justify an organization such as Fox News that then becomes "necessary" to "counterbalance" the "liberal bias" which has "taken over" the news media.

    Never mind the fact that the original premise is false. What does it matter, once a justification exists for blatant right wing bias, such as that which is displayed by Fox News on a literal, 24/7 basis.

    The more I get to know you, the more often you're wrong...

    Care for some sour grapes?

    PC has hit the nail on the head. Liberals lose the argument when they are debated.
