Thanks to a new report by Media Matters, we now know that many Fox News contributors don't just play Romney campaign workers on TV, they actually do work for the Romney campaign.
John Bolton, Elaine Chao, and Pete Snyder are all Fox News contributors, while Walid Phares is a terror analyst. Bolton is a foreign policy advisor and campaign surrogate. Phares is a special advisor for foreign policy and National Security Advisory Team, and the co-chair of the Middle East and North Africa working group. Chao is national chair of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders for Romney, and Snyder is a surrogate. Plus, there's Karl Rove, co-founder of an anti-Obama super PAC and regular guest Jay Sekulow, who frequently appears on Fox to bash Obama, yet also serves as an advisor to Romney.

No wonder Fox is so eager to rehab Romney's Middle East fiasco.
Those 2 persons were Negroponte who opened F&F and who was non-committal (wait for more facts, please) and Juan Williams who tried to inject a note of common sense into the new outrage about reporters exchanging ideas. The other person was Andrea T(whatever) who was not shouting … this new mise was a lot more attractive than her usual delivery.
When Newt and Rick Santorum announced they were running they were let go by Fox. It’s how we knew that Sarah wasn’t running as long as she on the payroll. I guess with Fox it’s okie dokie to work for a campaign, so they do have their standards.
Let’s keep the spotlight on that little detail that several employees of FNC are tied with a double knot to the Romney campaign.
@truman: Boltan, aka the talking toilet brush ???: ooooo, nasty, disgraceful … but I likeeeeeeee. Laughter is the best way to deal with stuffed toi… sorry, shirts.
Yes, Peter, anything the USA does affects the world as a whole. Romney is still a bit of a mystery. His religion is not an issue. Rather, the cause for concern is all those supporters who played an active role in the war-torn Bush administration when America blustered and brayed on the world stage. Those years were fraught with embarrassment and – yes – shame.
BTW: Cavuto tried hard to get Sen. McCain to beat the drums of war (and/or isolationism) yesterday. To McCain’s credit, he resisted, albeit only mildly and indirectly. Guess we can’t hope for better with an election coming up.
