Ben Bernanke's on Capitol Hill, Neil Cavuto's in Las Vegas

Reported by Melanie - November 8, 2007 -

Fed Reserve chair Ben Bernanke testified before congress today (November 8, 2007) about the falling dollar, inflation (or not), the "credit crunch," and our $1 trillion deficit. So where was Neil Cavuto, the anchor of Fox's "premiere business news" program? In Las Vegas -- covering O.J.!

Yep. Cavuto opened today's show with a FOX NEWS ALERT and, "It really is about the money. It's about O.J.'s money and right now it's about a lotta folks who stand not to get a penny of that money. We are live in Las Vegas and so is O.J. A preliminary hearing is set to resume [shortly]...this is about the money."

Comment: Priorities, priorities. On Fox, "premiere business news" anchors travel to Las Vegas to follow up on "business news" like, "That's money. Boom! That's a big business story!" As for what "Fed head" Bernanke says about inflation? The falling dollar? The credit crunch? Oh, and that $1 trillion deficit? Pfft! Per Fox, that's nothing more than "mainstream media" BS. They report that because they want to "bring Bush down."
