White House Gives Fox News a New Assignment

Reported by Melanie - April 27, 2005

Fifteen minutes into today's (April 27, 2005) "business news" program, Your World w/Neil Cavuto, Cavuto plugged one of Fox's Saturday morning "business news" programs, Forbes on Fox. As Cavuto spoke, a picture of David Asman (the host of Forbes on Fox) appeared onscreen along with the show's title and the time the show airs. A big banner along the bottom announced the headline topic: "Blame Liberals For High Oil and Gas Prices!."

Comment: Think: Liberals oppose nuclear power plants and oil refineries. (Today: Bush Endorses Refineries, Nuclear Plants to Boost Energy Supply.)

Fox's task: Convince its viewers that nuclear power plants and oil refineries are good, and that unpatriotic, tree-hugging liberals are preventing us from being energy independent because they (and only they) oppose them.
