I think I am watcing it. Isn't that Chiris Wallace asking hard questions of McCain's point man? I just cannot believe that I am watching it because Fox News is actually throwing HARD balls at McCain's campaign manager. Wallace is actually making the point that they are hiding Palin and demanding to know when she is going to answer quations!
Maybe Wallace forgot where he works!

Nice! Good for them! You know - I think that impeding the media's ability to do its job rises above partisanship, even for Faux.

Maybe he has values and is disgusted with them and is one of the few on Faux News who actually has credentials enough to get a job elsewhere. The rest have little choice but to beat that neocon drum if they want their paychecks.

I always feel sorry for reporters at network affiliates that become Faux affiliates. It happened in Tampa and the coverage really changed.

Yes. It undermines our very democracy, or what we have left of it.

How can the public make informed choices with no information.

I think we, the public, got a much better deal and were better informed when the Equal Time Amendment was in effect. I know the objections, that it is difficult to implement, but I think, overall, it put more ideas out over the airwaves.

I think it's a nightmare of biased news programs, but tough, it's their job.
I think that with the amendment people watched or listened to a greatere assortment of news sources, knowing that even the opposition would be forced to give more than one opinion.

I think Palin's attack on the press, combined with keeping her away from them, is really about to backfire. The McCain campaign has put a real fire under the butt of some reporters, many of whom are now in Alaska diggin around.

Mike Wallace is one of the few Faux reporters with some journalistic integrity. He blasted his own network when they spent 24/7 on the Jeremiah Wright story, including spreading just plain falsehoods on the air.
