The Answer . . .

by Dee Newman

So, why did Fox News choose to, once again, offer their viewers critical commentary rather than air the Q&A portion of the exchange between President Obama and his GOP opposition last Friday?

For those of us who watched the event the answer is obvious. Fox News saw what the rest of us saw . . . the Republicans were being excoriated by the President. They looked like fools. So, Fox News cut away to try and mitigate the damage.

Regressives have always found it easy to score political points with lies and factual distortions, especially when the corporate media assists them or allows them to get away with it. However, when confronted by someone armed with the facts and the truth, someone who is able to articulate those facts in a clear and comprehensive manner and when the event is  broadcasted live to a national audience on every network, they are easily seen as the buffoons and the charlatans they really are.

It all gets on my nerves! I do like to listen to Bill Moyers, however.

Moyers is the best!

I look forward to his commentaries all week, responding with the same words at the end of his program . . . Thank you, thank you, thank you.
