The Fox News Propaganda Machine Stumbles

Reported by Melanie - May 19, 2005

Fox News and Neil Cavuto are looking more ridiculous by the day as they try to maintain the pretense that Cavuto's show (Your World w/Neil Cavuto) is a "business news" show while simultaneously propagandizing for the radical right.

Today (May 19, 2005) for example, CNBC devoted the first 12 minutes of its 4:00 p.m. ET show, "After the Bell," to a rumored merger between US Airways and America West and to reports from Wall Street and the Nasdaq market site. Cavuto, meanwhile, led with an interview titled, "Stocks & Filibusters," with Fox's "top gun," Brit Hume.

Cavuto introduced Hume with: "Well, only in Washington can they talk so much about not wanting to talk so much. Difference today is Wall Street's watching and some say, worrying."

Cavuto alleged that Wall Street is concerned that the Senate isn't dealing with issues "near and dear" to it "like Social Security reform," yet Hume said the "near-term consequences of that are probably not very great."

Comment: Whoops. Apparently "Stocks & Filibusters" don't go together after all. Better luck tomorrow Neil.
