If you've spent any time watching Fox News lately, you've undoubtedly seen a report about how a Mr. Frank Vandersloot has been a victim of President Obama's "enemies list" merely for donating to the Mitt Romney campaign. But while Fox has been eager to team up with Vandersloot to demonize Obama, they've been much less forthcoming about some other details: such as the fact that Vandersloot is not just some small businessman who, after exercising his right to partake of the political process, found himself the victim of a smear campaign (as Fox suggests). Instead, he's a Romney campaign official with some real-life smearing mojo of his own.
Rachel Maddow did an in-depth investigation into this latest faux Fox controversy and the result speaks volumes about how Fox gets into bed with Republicans, adopts their messaging without skepticism and - oh, what a coincidence - allows itself to be used as a fundraising tool for them, too.
