I Wonder if Neil Cavuto Has Ever Heard the Phrase: Question Authority

Reported by Melanie - May 18, 2006

In a segment today (May 18, 2006) that was captioned for the duration: "NSA Program the Very Reason Hayden Should be CIA Chief?" Neil Cavuto introduced former Democratic presidential contender and Florida senator Bob Graham (who said Hayden should be confirmed) with this:

Hayden says that the NSA's terrorist surveillance programs are keeping America safe so shouldn't they be the very reason he should be CIA chief?

Comment: Talk about the dumbing down of America. Just because Hayden says something we're to automatically and unquestioningly believe him? Now that's hard-hitting journalism. And never mind the question marks. Fair and balanced Cavuto makes statements every day that he hides behind by turning them into questions. It's a Fox tactic; one of the What?-I'm-Not-Being-An-Advocate ploys used by the "fair and balanced" crowd.
