watch hannity.  his message: all criticism of the war/iraqi occupation is
political.  liberals celebrate when things go badly in iraq.

if 04 is the apocalypse, hannity is the devil's significant other.

(consider an "ann coulter smells" bumper sticker, especially those of you
with jags.)

Fox Gets the Memo

Charlie Reina, a former producer for Fox News, has posted a letter to
the Poynter Institute's online journalism forum, explaining how the
network deliberately slants the news. "Editorially, the FNC newsroom is
under the constant control and vigilance of management," he
writes. "The pressure ranges from subtle to direct.  First of all, it's
a news network run by one of the most high-profile political operatives
of recent times. ... The roots of FNC's day-to-day on-air bias are
actual and direct. They come in the form of an executive memo
distributed electronically each morning, addressing what stories will
be covered and, often, suggesting how they should be covered. To the
newsroom personnel responsible for the channel's daytime programming,
The Memo is the bible. If, on any given day, you notice that the Fox
anchors seem to be trying to drive a particular point home, you can bet
The Memo is behind it." Source: Poynter Online Forums, October 29, 2003
