    Looks like Fox overplayed their hand given that they employ the who's who of possible Presidential candidates LOL. Will it cost Repub's the election in '12?

    It's not Fox's job to set up political candidates.

    I seriously think this irrational hatred for all things Fox is confusing you people.

    I agree it should not be their job. But it appears to be one of the things they are doing.

    Interesting conflicts coming up for the most trusted news network.

    and btw I watch no network news now at all except some local news on local stations. I read on the web and do watch the PBS nightly news from time to time.

    I mostly only watch the local news on local stations and turn it off when they go to the national segment.

    As the propaganda wing of the Republican Party, Fox is doing their job

    They created the Tea Party and have done a fine job in trying to bring down the Obama Administration

    why is truth mistaken by you for hatred?

    what is irrational is not understanding that fox was intentionally established to be the propaganda source for the right. whether you want to call it the pursuit of rupert murdoch's or roger ailes' vision, they want to be kingmakers... they want to choose which corporatist represents the right. one of the reasons palin has no credibility anymore as a possible candidate is because she refused to listen to roger ailes. he told her not to respond to the shooting of gabby giffords the way she did. she didn't listen.

    notice where her fortunes are now? she's been displaced in the rightwing media by michelle bachmann.
