Propaganda Gets in the Way - Fox's "Premiere Business News" Show Reports 14 Seconds of "Business News"

Reported by Melanie - July 25, 2008 -

Your World w/Neil Cavuto, Fox's "premiere business news" show opened today (July 25, 2008) with a report from Major Garrett in London on Barack Obama's trip. Next came Dick Morris to assess how Obama's trip will "play out at home." (Obama made his Big Gaffe during today's press conference with President Sarkozy when he said we would impose tougher sanctions on Iran if they don't do what we want, instead of essentially saying we'd bomb the crap out of them. He's a wimp.)

After a segment about whether "Obama's French kiss will help or hurt" (it was a draw); one about a tornado in New Hampshire; the hole in the Quantas airplane, and how awful San Francisco is for being a "sanctuary city" and how Nancy Pelosi and Barbara Boxer are enablers in that, Newt Gingrich came on to bash Democrats for not turning the country over to the oil companies so they can drill wherever they want. (He said that will be the huge issue in the election, the second big thing being - get this - English only! OMG. These guys are so out of it.)

Next came a report about the Democratic convention and Denver's security plans; a yelling match about a woman who won a settlement from a guy who canceled their engagement; Richard Simmons on his testimony before congress yesterday about kids and fitness and finally, congressman Nick Lampson (D-TX) who's "breaking with Democrats" and is in favor of drilling now. (When was the last time you saw a Republican on Fox who was breaking with Republicans?)

Ah, yeah, and what about the business news, you ask?

Here's the 14 second video beginning at 4:59:46 p.m. ET (the show begins at 4:00 p.m.) in which substitute host Connell McShane reports it: "By the way, the price of oil closed down today about $2.00 so it's below $124.00 a barrel. There you have it. The Dow was up a little bit today." Then he turns it over to "American's" Election Headquarters (it's America's Election Headquarters, for what it's worth).

Here's a screen shot (because you can't see the time in the video):


Comment: Aaaaah, oh yeah, I gotta pretend this is a business news show. Gawd.
