5. It came down to a medical issue

Fox anchors get sick when they hear facts so they avoid them at all costs

7. I think "Fiasco" was instrumental in changing the US view toward the war in Iraq

He's been a hero since at least his work on that classic journalistic book. It was every bit as influential as Halberstam's The Best and the Brightest.

8. I know that guy. Well, I've had a number of conversations with him in years past.

I don't want to suggest he has me on speed dial, or anything like that.

He's an interesting fellow.

9. I'd like to see all the Democratic politicians stay away from Fox 'news'. This would show

clearly that they are a republican channel. Those "Democratic consultants and pollsters" should not participate, but they need the money so I understand. Some of them are so bad they can't get work elsewhere (e.g., Beckel, Colmes)
