Cavuto Fave Will Bower, the Founder of PUMA, Exposed as a Liar. What will Cavuto do Next?

Reported by Melanie - August 21, 2008 -

On July 21, Will Bower, the founder of PUMA (Party Unity My Ass), appeared on Fox's "premiere business news" show, Your World w/Neil Cavuto. Bower, who has been a guest on Your World at least three times since the end of May, is a disgruntled Clinton supporter who Cavuto loves to exploit as a born again "Dem" turned McCain supporter and as someone who claims Barack Obama is running a "fraudulent campaign" and is "jumping ship."

During his July 21 appearance (link above) with substitute host David Asman, Bower claimed that his group, also known as JustSayNoDeal, had "an initiative before the 4th of July to raise money to put down [Hillary Clinton's] debt. And within that week leading up to the 4th of July we raised approximately $10 million. Our most conservative estimates have it at 6 million but we're looking more at 10 million. Our sources tell us that the debt is now less than $5 million away from being in the black and we're doing one final push ah, today and tomorrow to get our members to contribute just five more dollars or whatever they can and we believe that by this weekend that Hillary's debt will be finished."

(Watch Bower, in his own words, linked to above.)

Comment: PUMA/JustSayNoDeal raised somewhere between $6 and $10 million in July?

Take a look at this, dateline today (August 21, 2008): Disclosure reports show Clinton still deeply in debt: "According to an FEC report filed Wednesday, Clinton's debt as of the end of July stood at just under $24 million — a decrease of only $1.2 million since the end of June." (Emphasis added.)

Bower is a liar and Cavuto is a shill for the GOP. Will Cavuto disavow him? Have him on again? Come clean in any way? We shall see what happens next but it's been something to watch — two guys with ulterior motives using each other to claw their way through the mud with nothing but their own political objectives in mind — all of it presented to Fox's audience as "fair and balanced news."
