Foxaganda

A friend mentioned that FoxNews.com had devolved during these last days before the election into the purest form of itself: unadulterated propaganda. So I took a look at the home page and this is what I found last night and this morning:

-- "What's LA Times hiding? Newspaper refuses to release videotape of Obama toasting 'friend and dinner companion' with questionable past."

-- McCain Shows Gritty Determination in Final Week

-- "LAT: Allies of Palestinians See A Friend In Barack Obama."

-- "Obama Affinity To Marxists Dates Back To College Days."

-- Obama Accepting Untraceable Prepaid Credit Cards

-- And my personal favorite: "Joe The Plumber: Obama Would Bring 'Death To Israel.'"

Gee, untraceable prepaid credit cards? Must be terrorists, eh?

During the next seven days, let's see how low Fox can go.

They're busy on the airwaves, too, of course, 24-7, marxist this, socialist that, interspliced with powerpuff McCain interviews. Not surprising. Last night they had the Palm Beach Post's Jose Lambiet, or "Lambient," as Fox had it, on talking about Wayne Huizenga's gripes about Obama raising capital gains taxes. It was a high point of the night, actually, raising the burning political question: How many votes can a whining billionaire sway?
