On Fox, the Politickin' Continues, Even When it Pauses to Remember Tim Russert

Reported by Melanie - June 13, 2008 -

Your World w/Neil Cavuto featured wall-to-wall coverage today (June 13, 2008) of the untimely and heartbreaking death of Tim Russert. My heart goes out to his wife, son, father and friends.

But far be it for Fox to stop thinking about Democrats versus Republicans for an hour. Check out the chyrons it used when Cavuto read the statements made by Barack Obama and John McCain:

During the reading of Obama's statement:

Comment: Obama is marginalized, McCain is emphasized.
