Faux News Deux

Faux News Deux

Well, it is official. CNN (aka Faux News Deux) has decided to emulate their sister station by advancing the cause of the Republican agenda by hiring more party spokesmen (read: apologists). It was apparent that FND already had issues of credibility starting with their coddling of Robert Novak after he revealed the name of Valerie Plame. And we know where he works now.

FND has hired Glenn Beck, William Bennett and last but not least, JC Watts. At least Novak was a journalist. The same cannot be said of the three newest members of the FND crew.

So, today as I surfed and read I came across this story about Aaron Brown the former CNN anchor of News Night, with the Palm Beach Daily in the form of a link at The Raw Story.

I wanted to share a quote with you that I think typifies the actions of FND and the other 24 hour news channels. Brown said,
"Truth no longer matters in the context of politics and, sadly, in the context of cable news."

The final quote assumes, of course, that truth did matter at one time. ;-)

Fair point Sarah. There is no evidence that cable news ever cared about the truth.
