Quote of the Day, Jr.
"I have to tell you even I am shocked by how blatantly Fox is throwing off any pretense of being a journalistic entity with videos like this. Don't be fooled by Bret Baier's Boy Scout smile or all the talk about how some shows are news and some are opinion on the channel. Any news organization that puts up this kind of video is rotten to the core."
-- David Zurawik of the Baltimore Sun on the extended "look back" at the Obama administration's time in office, aired this morning on Fox & Friends, which was really nothing more than a four-minutes of blatant Republican propaganda
You really have to see this thing to believe it -- and this is coming from somebody who truly believed that Fox couldn't possibly get any more shameless.
In an almost comically full-of-shit move, the network is now distancing itself from the story -- the one that was lauded by Doocy the Clown and the other two F&F dingbats as exceptional journalism -- and is blaming the "mistake" on a lowly associate producer, essentially throwing a person with almost zero authority within the newsroom directly under the front tires of the bus.
I'll have more to say about this tomorrow at the Daily Banter.
