Fox Going Full Throttle Blaming Democrats for High Gas Prices

Reported by Melanie - July 31, 2008 -

The screen shot below from the opening moments of today's (July 31, 2008) Your World w/Neil Cavuto pretty much says it all. Substitute host Alexis Glick opened with, "The countdown is on! You're looking live at Capitol Hill. 24 hours to go before congress goes on a f-i-v-e w-e-e-k v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n! They're leaving Americans high and dry at the pump."


With the countdown clock remaining in the corner, she proceeded to inteview Suzanne Curran, of the conservative "American Solutions for Winning the Future" (Curran was identified as an "everyday citizen"), who blamed congress and environmentalists for high gas prices; Mike Pence (R-IN) who has asked George Bush to order congress to go into special session to force a vote on offshore drilling, and Jonathan Hoenig (of the investment firm "CapitalistPig"), who defended the record profit ExxonMobil reported this morning — more than any company has ever made in one quarter in the history of the planet. (The clock wasn't present during his segment.)

Comment: You get the idea. Democrats and environmental groups (who, of course, are all painted as tree hugging liberals — never mind hunting and fishing organizations, some of whom are fighting gas drilling proposals in the West), are to blame for this and darn, if the Republicans aren't doing everything in their power to help YOU. They only have YOU in mind. None of this has anything to do with, ahem, being bought off, of course.
