Fox fail

September 20, 2009

I am loving the spat between CNN and Fox News this week.  That ad went waaaay too far.

Rick Sanchez’ Stewart-wannabe rant is actually quite thorough.  The best part is when he says:

We extensively covered the event, we didn’t PROMOTE the event.  That’s not what real news organizations are supposed to do…. I would invite you to look at that distinction between those two words: promote and cover.  Cover is kinda like a ‘fair and balanced’ way of doing things.  You get it?

Which is really the heart of the argument, no?

And then of course, right on cue, as if to illustrate Sanchez’ point, comes video of a Fox producer rallying the crowd.
