Fox News Anchor's Implication Regarding Richard Clarke
A few minutes ago, they were talking about the presidential polls. The anchor was talking about how Bush is doing "remarkably well," considering all the negative books coming out lately. He said something about "Arthur Clarke's book... I mean Richard Clarke's book... I always want to call him Arthur Clarke..." The obvious implication was that the Clarke book is "science fiction."

Anyone here think this was a honest slip of the tongue? Or was it meant as a "subliminable" bit of propaganda? I know what I think. (Orders from Ailes.)

1. The usually call him Dick Clarke, so we'll think he knows more
about top 40 songs than terra-ism.

2. I don't think that Fox news anchors are that well read...
and even if they were, their audience would be clueless about the slip.

3. It's FOX. It could be either one.
Although I have to admit, I've called him Arthur Clarke before. Too many episodes of "Mysterious World," I suppose.

4. Here's a test for all you future "Mensa" members

Regarding the theory that Faux News might have indulged in "subliminable" propaganda...

'Faux News' is to 'nuanced' as:
1. 'bull' is to 'china shop'
2. "rhino" is to "automobile"
3. 'Shrub' is to 'English language'
4. all of the above

5. Their viewers don't know who Arthur Clarke is, and it's Arthur C. Clarke
Implication...nah I think they would just say it, don't you? They don need no implication man!
