What is going on at Fox?
Who are these panelists?

FOX News covers Gannon, and actually obliterates him. Hell freezes over. Chickens grow lips.

Seriously. FOX's coverage rocked. And they did such a good job covering it that the wingnut at Accuracy in Media, the one who thinks prostitution is simply someone's "sex life," flipped out. I think, perhaps, we've developed the ultimate insult for the mainstream media over the entire l'affaire Gannon: FOX covered it better than you.

1. The show this appeared on is less "Fox-like" than most...
In fact, I actually enjoy watching it. But it's still amazing they were allowed to talk this way.

For ONCE...once in it's ugly 20-year history FOX actually stops being a biased asshole "news" organization, and actually nails a RW fuckstick to the wall. Goddam, catch me, I think I'm going to faint!!

3. But did they tie it in to the administration
or are they just hanging Jiggy Gannon out to dry?

6. Pulling the band-aid off in one swift action
and hopefully (to them) putting the issue to rest.

7. Maybe Murdoch is following the market trend
After all, regular Fox isn't exactly a paragon of uptight virtue and he's been pretty damn quick to compromise his values to be able to get into the China market.

Liberals have been flexing their economic muscles lately in the media and Murdoch, never one to miss a chance to make a dollar, may simply have begun to notice.

8. A little taste:
NEIL GABLER: Yes. He worked for a GOP operative. He would not have been credentialed and was NOT credentialed by Congress for precisely that reason. Among other things, they have a rule that if you're a lobbiest for an organization, you can not be credentialed. So, this issue here is that this person should have NEVER been credentialed, was not credentialed by Congress, and we know the ... I know there's some Democrats that disingenously are trying to investigate how he got credentialed. We KNOW how he got credentialed -- the White House wanted him there. They wanted him to ask softball questions and ...

ERIC BURNS: What about the guy Jim mentioned asking hardball questions? They certainly didn't want that, did they, Neil?

NEIL GABLER: Well, then he shouldn't even be there. But the point of the fact is I don't know whether or not he got a daily credential every single day as Guckert did. Every day for ... for years ...

JIM PINKERTON: I agree that Guckert/Gannon getting a pass ... I worked in the White House for 6 years and I can tell you that there's somebody, you know, with a false name is ... but the Secret Service ...

NEIL GABLER: On a daily basis.

JIM PINKERTON: On a daily basis takes an incredible ammount of intervention from somebody high up in the White House. That I would ...
