FOX questions one Obama ad, skips another

Reported by Chrish - October 29, 2008 -

FOX and Friends touched on Obama's new ad, "Take the day," several times this morning 10/29/08. They acknowledge that large turnout is expected, surpassing 1968's record 130 million, and more voters is a good thing for Obama. (Hence the frantic efforts to stop all the newly registered, newly interested voters from casting their ballots.)

FOX is dutifully presenting every last scenario, no matter how preposterous, wherein Democrats steal the election through fraud, whether it be animated characters going to the polls, registering and voting multiple times from your many homes park benches, or other criminal fraudulent acts - even though there is scant evidence of voter fraud prosecuted by the Bush Justice Dept. in the past five years.

They overlook things like the notice sent in Virginia telling Democrats to vote November 5th, the purging of voter rolls in battleground states, and vote-flipping - funny how those almost always flip from D to R, eh? It's an act, sheerleaded by a desperate, "I-got-nuthin'-else" John McCain, intended to undermine confidence in the election outcome should it be Democratic - and that is "one of the greatest frauds in voter history in this country, maybe destroying the fabric of democracy."

Brian Kilmeade sells the idea that the rural vote may be energized, and that would traditionally be good for McCain.

One note: I scanned the entire three hours of F&F and did not see Obama's other new ad, "The Choice." FOX has not been shy about running McCain's attack ads for him, and then promoting the core talking points contained. But they won't touch this one with a ten foot pole - they don't dare. Fair and balanced - if you're crooked to begin with.
