Cavuto as a Mouthpiece for the GOP Radical Right - in Pictures

Reported by Melanie - October 28, 2008 -

I laugh in disgust at Fox's feigned indignation when someone calls it out as a tool of the Republican party radical right because we here at News Hounds see proof of that every day.

Take today (October 28, 2008). Take Fox's "business news" guy, Neil Cavuto.

His first segment featured Democratic Strategist Maria Cardona. Cardona was on to defend this (note the chyron in this and all the subsequent screenshots), which is a coordinated hit job vis-a-vis Drudge, Fox and the McCain camp:

Immediately following Cardona, Republican Strategist Trent Duffy talked about the bailout:

Roughly 25 minutes in, Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) was on to defend something McCain said about Pelosi and Reid (again, note the chyron):

Ten minutes later, Tito Munoz, also known as "Tito the Builder" was on to praise Sarah Palin and bash Obama. (Some of Obama's tactics are "coming out of Hugo Chavez's playbook.")

Comment: How long is a one hour show, sans ads? 45 minutes? Four segments built around charges made by two radical GOP candidates in 45 minutes? What does that tell ya'?
