FOX News is owned by the Republican Party. Big surprise

This will not come as a surprise to anyone - neither humans nor Bush/GOP supporters alike:

The GOP (Grand Old Party for those of us who don't care enough about them to find out what the acronym used to mean) owns FOX Media.

Big surprise hey?

"Robert G. Kaufman, author of In Defense of the Bush Doctrine: Moral Democratic Realism and American Grand Strategy, published in 2007. In a ten-minute presentation, Mr. Kaufman posited five "core principles" that Republicans must embrace if they are to succeed "when Obama fails."

Kaufman stated:

"The fifth thing that Republicans have to do is understand the problem of communicating in a world where much of the television media, particularly, is hostile...If I had to recommend one single thing that the Republicans should be doing to help articulate the message, it is to acquire another television network so that there is not just FOX, but multiple sources of alternative information that will do a much better job than we did in 2008 to keep things honest."

I love the "keep things honest" part of that quote... hilarious.

If you watch FOX for anything other than entertainment - and it's a pretty poor source of that - you need serious debrief and, after that, therapy.

And to my much loved J-school Theory prof.... I told you it's owned.... The only way to keep the rocks from being upturned is to make sure anyone who intends to investigate can't.
