Fox...I mean, Pravda

Reported by Melanie - August 30, 2004 -

Here's an article titled: A Magazine of the Left Won't Speak to the Right, from the August 30, 2004 issue of the New York Times. It seems that Fox News (you know, the "fair and balanced" one) has refused to sell ad time to The Nation, a liberal, issues-oriented magazine. Ironically, The Nation itself sold ad space to Fox News; a Fox News ad will appear in The Nation's upcoming issue.

COMMENT: Ah, Fox. Flag-waver extraordinaire. Champion of God and country - now taking on the tactics of Pravda. (Pravda was the state-run newspaper in the old Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), now known as Russia. Only news and information which supported the government appeared in it.)
