As if we didn’t know already. Still, this wonderful round-up (blogspot site so use your proxy) is devastating and will leave you pondering the scary fact that somehow this creature has become America’s most-watched television “pundit.” His rampage against Daily Kos is a frightening example of the old blacklist mentality. It’s just too bad the Kos response is to campaign for advertisers to stop sponsoring Fox, leaving them wide open to similar charges of blacklisting. There’s got to be a better way to alert the public that this fiend is a conscious and persistent falsifier of information and is intentionally and insidiously deceiving his audience, generating a lot of misplaced rage and hatred along the way. Then again, anyone who at this point is still among his audience is probably unsalvagable anyway.
