Fear, Fear and More Fear On Fox News Live

Reported by Donna - August 14, 2006 -

Today on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) the overwhelming theme was fear, fear and more fear. The thunderous music and graphic saying 'Mideast Turmoil' was put forth several times throughout the show, but that wasn't the only fear that they played on.

They also kept going back to the story about the men on Friday who were found with 1,000 pre paid cell phones on them. The banner on the bottom read, '3 Palestinian Americans Arrested In Plot To Blow Up Michigan Bridge.' Although later they said that a Federal official said there was no imminent threat and there was no credible evidence that they had any intention of blowing up the bridge.

The third fear factor item was a suspicious package on an Air Alaska flight from Mexico to Los Angelos. The plane landed in Los Angelos and the passengers were off the plane but were being held in customs until the package was checked out.

Comments: Par for the course on Fox - fear all the time on Fox - something has to be done to bring up President Bush's numbers now, doesn't there? The question is - does the fear factor even work anymore with the American people?
