Fox News “Business” Show Suggests Wal-Mart Should Run Health Care

On Saturday’s (8/22/09) Cashin’ In, the lopsided panel's conservatives cheered on the idea of Wal-Mart getting into health care. Host Terry Keenan even suggested that maybe Wal-Mart should run the U.S. health care system. We're willing to bet that these folks have never done any serious shopping in a Wal-Mart store, have never waited in line for customer service there, have never schlepped through a Wal-Mart only to find that their preferred item or brand is out that day. I’m also willing to bet that when they gushed over the possibility of Wal-Mart taking over health care, the panelists really meant that it was good enough for Wal-Mart shoppers - while they planned to keep their own high-quality insurance.

Let Them Work At Wal-Mart!

Co-authored by Brian

On yesterday's (6/4/09) Your World, Fox News contributor Tucker Carlson joined host Neil Cavuto to discuss the good news that Wal-Mart is hiring 22,000 workers “without any government stimulus at all.” Rather than analyze or investigate the circumstances of the hires, Fox used the news to take a swipe at the Obama administration – and America's workers – by suggesting that this had proved the government stimulus package was unnecessary. The "fair and balanced" segment featured a host and guest with, essentially, the same opinion. With video.

Neil Cavuto Gives Wal-Mart's CEO Almost as Much Time as He Gave George W. Bush

We all know that the average television "interview" last three to four minutes, right? Well Lee Scott, the CEO of Wal-Mart, was Neil Cavuto's guest today (March 27, 2006) on Your World. Cavuto advertised Scott's appearance three times during yesterday's show and it was indeed a big deal. Scott appeared for three -- yes, three -- segments, totaling 19 minutes. The last time Cavuto interviewed George Bush I think he was on for something like 22 minutes.

Cavuto's Band of Merry Hit Men (and One Woman) Blame Unions for Downfall of GM

On last Saturday's edition of Cavuto on Business, the first segment echoed the same sentiments that had already been expressed on the earlier FOX business show, Bulls & Bears, namely, that there is a credit crunch simmering underneath the surface which will seriously hamper the ability of large portions of the American populace to fulfil their global economic function, i.e., buy, buy, buy. Even Cavuto seemed surprised when Joe Battapaglia of Ryan Beck & Company painted a gloomy picture. Battipaglia is usually a stalwart rah-rah man for the "everything is just fine" school of economic thought.
