    Truer worder were never spoken



    Murdoch, Ailes, Weymouth Pump Bloomberg At Breindel Awards

    June 6, 2007 | Michael Calderone

    Mr. Murdoch hosted the 9th annual presentation of the Eric Breindel awards for opinion writing alongside Fox News boss Roger Ailes and Newsweek senior editor Lally Weymouth.

    Mr. Ailes ...“We’ve become increasingly successful, and yet we’ve been increasingly criticized," he said to the crowd about his company. "Sometimes for being too pro-American. Sometimes we’re too pro-Israel. Sometimes too pro-democracy.

    "I’ve been quoted as saying, ‘This is a great country.’ A lot of people are trying to get in, nobody’s trying to get out. The press is an essential pillar of that democracy. The press didn’t invent democracy. Democracy invented freedom of the press. So we will investigate anything and find the truth, and report it, but we do not get up every morning, assuming that our country is guilty. We just happen to like democracy."

    And he had some choice words for Democratic candidates who have decided not to debate on Fox.

    “The candidates that can’t face Fox, can’t face Al Qaeda,” said Mr. Ailes. “And that’s what’s coming.”

    That was followed by applause from the crowd...

    This is just silly sour grapes. It is ludicrous to compare a “news” network with a terrorist organization.

    How can it be sour grapes? Fox News destroys CNN, and the Dems were scared to debate on Fox

    Hell, the last thing Dems want is to be asked real questions during a debate

    So the Democrats don’t want to debate on FOX. Big freaking deal. Murdock is so disappointed that the Democrats won’t be on FOX. Look. The Dems will have their political candidate one way or another to go against the Republican pick. That is a far cry from saying that Dems will not respond to AQ.

    It tells you alot about the Dems when they do not have the guts to appear on the #1 watched cable news network

    So far the Dems have not stood up to terrorists. All I have seen is they want to appease them and surrender to them in Iraq

    It is sad when a political party is scared of a tv network and terrorists

    Actually, that's a very interesting way of framing it.

    They will have to grow a pair first

    The last thing these clowns want to do is to actually have to answer real questions during a debate

    I'm no Democrat, but it is ridiculous to compare a news network with an international terrorist organization.
