Fox News Cuts off Cheney Appearance After Tough Question
Reported by Judy - June 19, 2006
Fox News cuts in and out of its "Dayside" program with reckless abandon, standing up scheduled guests in favor of whatever "breaking news" it decides is more important, but Monday (June 19, 2006), it dumped an appearance by Dick Cheney.
Cheney was speaking at the National Press Club, taking written questions from reporters. Fox News stuck with Cheney for a couple questions, but then came one asking whether he had underestimated the insurgency's strength in Iraq.
Fox News immediately cut away back to its scintillating programming on "Dayside" about whether wine and beer are good for you.
