Most of us have already known this for years, but now it’s been officially confirmed.
Ex-White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan said in a recent interview that FOX News is often provided literal talking points by the White House for its “primetime propagandists.”
“Does anyone actually believe the right wing stuff they spout?” Asks the MSNBC anchor.
Now, it’s not like McClellan is some hero here. Obviously, he knew about this problem way beforehand, but only decided to come out about it after he was retired. For God’s sake look at the footage of him and Bush together! They might as well be holding hands.
While it’s not rare for Fox News to be humiliated (in fact there is even a website dedicated to it), the video clearly shows how Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity are mere Ventriloquist Dummies for the Bush Administration.
It probably won’t happen, but I’m hoping that this finally brings an end to the “Fair and Balanced” station for good. Let us take this time to countdown the hours that FOX News has left to live.
