Why Isn't Fox News Pressuring Rupert Murdoch To Speak Out On China's One Child Policy?

Reported by Priscilla - August 25, 2011 -

Joe Biden's comment regarding their one child policy, spoken while he was in China, was dragged around the block and then some on Fox News which never wastes an opportunity to bash Democrats and provide a shout out to the pro-lifers. While Hannity's reaction was partisan, but measured, Laura Ingraham, on Fox & Friends totally freaked out. On the Bill O'Reilly show, Charles Krauthammer said that the policy was immoral. On America Live, Father Jonathan Morris, who is a member of a church that supports criminalization of abortion which would, arguably, force women to give birth, said that Biden should have told the Chinese people "that this is wrong...because it is immoral." Meanwhile, Fox's head honcho, Rupert Murdoch, was recently at a meeting during the Shanghai Film Festival. Betcha he told those Chinese about their "immoral" policy. Oh, wait, he told the Chinese that they needed to open up their film market and allow for more foreign investment. One hopes that the talking heads on Fox News, in the interests of being "fair & balanced," are pressuring Murdoch, whose wife is Chinese, to speak out. And if the dreams of the American Taliban are achieved and abortion is criminalized, one wonders how the Fox talking heads would react to a foreign politician who accuses the US of immorality. Just saying....
