Fox News desperately wants Democrats to validate them

Buried in this piece about an anonymous Fox News staffer SHOCKED! at his/her network's conservative activism is this nugget:

Asked about the potential candidates who frequently appear on Fox, the staffer responded: "Our bookers are begging Democrats to come on, we bend over backwards to get them and they won't go on. It is ridiculous and unfortunate. I don't think it is a valid reason not to go on, but they feel that way and it hurts our credibility if we can never get Democrats to go on."


It wasn't long ago that Democrats validated Fox News by appearing in its slanted and biased programming. Over time, it looks like our side has wisened up. While there are dozens of valid reasons for Democrats to skip Fox News, at the top of the list is this staffer's lament: it further damages their credibility.

Fox News has no credibility. There's no reason to help them out with that problem.

7. That's kind of odd...
I mean who wouldn't want to go on national TV and get intimidated, ignored, belittled and shouted down?

:sarcasm:

10. "But, do you love me?" ~ Fiddler on the Roof reference.
Because of the smilie you used.

This is a really good point to make, that they want to build their credibility on the backs of the Democrats.
Plus, they want to rerun the tape again the next night knocking the points the Democrat made while he or she was on the air.
Hannity used to do that to General Clark all of the time.

Another excellent article brought to us, courtesy of babylonsister.

16. Look at how they twisted Larry O'Donnell's "I am a socialist" quote.
Larry had a good rebuttal on his show tonight, showing exactly how the whole thing was played out, including video footage.

13. When Faux goes into receivership and its crap sold off, then I will validate them
as a permanent shit machine that went in the shitter when it should have been there a long time ago.

15. Glad to hear they're refusing to play the "turn his mike off" game.
Fixed News' credibility couldn't possibly get any lower than it already is.

"We *beg* them to come on!". :rofl:
