Is The GOP Now The Legislating Arm Of Fox News?

Reported by Ellen - March 24, 2010 -

John Amato at Crooks and Liars caught this interesting comment from David Frum, "Republicans originally thought that Fox worked for us, and now we are discovering we work for Fox."

What Frum seems to mean is that the Republicans are so beholden to what the talking heads on Fox News say, so afraid of incurring their displeasure, that the party is effectively at the network's beck and call.

Remember when former White House communications director Anita Dunn called Fox News, "the communications arm of the Repubican Party?" I think Frum makes a good case that the network is the body and the GOP is the arm.

Memo to all those Hannity/Beck/Limbaugh/Coulter et al. fans who are worried about the government taking over your lives, how do you feel about a media conglomerate doing it instead?
