Fox's Business News Website is Propaganda Lite Compared to the Televised Version

Reported by Melanie - October 23, 2006 -

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up by 114.54 points today (October 23, 2006), closing at 12,116.91. The headline this afternoon (October 23, 2006) at FoxNews.com/Business explained it like this: Bulls On the Run, Again -- Earnings optimism and word that Wal-Mart will move to boost returns gives Wall Street reason to cheer; Dow Jones industrial average cracks 12,100 for first time.

Compare that to Neil Cavuto's opening today on Fox's "premiere business news" program, Your World w/Neil Cavuto:

On and on we go. Well, the markets that won't quit because, maybe, maybe the Republican's won't lose. I know it sounds crazy but not to a top financial writer who has examined each and every district in this country and has concluded that the Grand Old Party is not going to be in for a grand old defeat.

With that, Cavuto introduced Jim McTague of Barron's magazine who wrote for Barron's: Survivor! The GOP Victory, and who proceeded to explain why the GOP will win in November.

Comment: If you want a taste of Fox propaganda, watch Fox television. Fox's website doesn't come close to replicating it.

By the way, it looks like Jim McTague spent the day in Fox's "green room."
