Fox Guest Says If Americans Would Rally Around Like They Did In WWII "We Could Beat The Terrorists"

Reported by Donna - August 28, 2006 -

Today on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) (or is it now called Fox On Line or Fox Plugged In - both were promoted heavily during this period) he spoke with Democratic strategist Michael Brown and the president of Culture Campaign, (a right wing group who discusses issues such as morality) Sandy Rios.

Hemmer wondered if the the two movies on 9/11, and basically, Hollwood, were actually helping the Republicans in the midterms elections?

Michael Brown said that he didn't think that there was any agenda and he didn't think it swayed people one way or the other.

Sandy Rios on the other hand seemed to think it had some influence by reminding people about 9/11. But she cinched it when she said that during WWII, Hollywood was very "pro American." Then she added, "If we could do that again, you know what? We could beat the terrorists."

Comments: Rios is insinuating that Hollywood is now not pro American which is only her opinion. And, she honestly thinks that we can beat the terrorists by using Hollywood? She is making an assumption that WWII is anything like this war, which it's not. And, which war is she talking about? Remember, the American people now distinguish a difference in the war on terror and the war in Iraq. But leave it to Fox to bring up how movies about 9/11 can help the Republicans in the midterm elections. Note to Fox -- quit using 9/11 as an impetus for promoting the Republican agenda, especially with ridiculous statements by a very partisan person.
