FOX borrows Huckabee's flying cross for latest promotion

Reported by Chrish - March 13, 2008 -

Remember the ad Mike Huckabee's campaign ran last December that featured a cleverly-lit bookshelve to resemble a cross? It floated past Huckabee as he spoke earnestly to the camera. FOX has apparently borrowed the premise, with some tweaking, for their latest false advertising campaign.

Calling themselves "Fair and Balanced" and proclaiming they only use facts, they substitute the "+" sign for "and" and float it throughout the ad. Subtle as a Mack truck, as my dear old mom would say.

Pandering? We report, you decide.
