Fox Says (But Pretends to Ask): Bush is the Best Hope For World Freedom

Reported by Melanie - April 26, 2006

The very hawkish former Israeli deputy prime minister Nathan Sharansky appeared on Your World w/Neil Cavuto today (April 26, 2006) to talk up George Bush. (Apparently Fox has to go halfway around the world to find someone who still thinks Bush knows what he's doing.)

Cavuto promoted the segment this way:

Well, his poll numbers are in a free fall. Critics declaring the war in Iraq a total failure. Still President Bush continues his quest to stop terror and spread freedom. Why one man who knows all too well about tyrants says we all stand to lose if he stops.

Sharansky said Bush is "like a dissident," because "dissidents are truly loyal to the ideas they believe in and politicians usually are true and loyal to the things which are popular." He said Bush "truly believes that freedom is for everybody," and whether he's popular or unpopular "he promotes this agenda of democracy."

Sharansky said Iraq is a "great victory for the forces of freedom" and while Bush is "so lonely in promoting this agenda," he "definitely hopes [Bush] will stay with the course because the alternative is awful, disastrous for the world."

Meanwhile, the chyron Fox displayed at the bottom of the screen throughout the segment read:

Best Hope For World Freedom: A President Like George Bush?

Comment: I watch segments like this and almost feel like I'm hallucinating. They're surreal. They're a fantasy, especially when the word "freedom" is used in connection with Iraq. The people there are living in hell.

Not only that, since when did the American people sign up to bring "freedom" to the world? The "war on terror" morphs again!

It's immoral, what Fox is doing.
