4. You can almost see the damage control in action:
Two things happened to the RNC in the last two days:

(1) Bush closed out their public funded propaganda machine by stopping government agencies from hiring private pundits.

(2) The Bush Administration did not pursue an appeal on loosening up the FCC media ownership regulations.

What I don't understand is, they already have FoxNews and other right-wing channels. And if it's a question of buying up air time on other channels, why doesn't Murdoch just do it? Why doesn't he just buy commercial time on CNN, ABC, NBC & CBS? Why are they going out with hat in hand for something like this? Is it because the one thing they lost was their anonymity? And now it looks all politically driven?
