Tom DeLay Resigns. What Does Fox Do? Duh - Bash Democrats!

Reported by Melanie - April 4, 2006

Here's how Fox spun the news of Tom DeLay's resignation today (April 4, 2006) on Your World w/Neil Cavuto (49 minutes into the show, I might add):

Cavuto said this over video of students rioting in Paris:

All right. Tom DeLay dropping out of his house race and resigning from congress. By the way, he's going to be with me live tomorrow during a special program we're planning from Washington, D.C. Democrats calling DeLay's resignation more evidence that the GOP is out of ideas and out of energy. We're going to play this out. If this further weakens the Grand Old Party, and Democrats sweep the mid-term elections, will they increase taxes and entitlements and if so, is this a glimpse of the future - [video of rioting French students] - violent protests like what we've been witnessing in France these last few days because its citizens were given cradle to grave entitlements that can't be sustained long-term?

A graphic appeared over Cavuto's shoulder: "We're Next?"

Then Cavuto introduced the "crew" from Bulls & Bears, a Saturday morning "financial" show that's part of Fox's "Cost of Freedom" lineup.

The three "Bulls & Bears" guys - Tobin Smith, Scott Bleier and Gary B. Smith - laid it on thick. According to the boys, Democrats want "higher taxes," they're "generally against free trade," they want "more unionization," and "more government control over the economy." We'll get "high unemployment..slow growth." Democrats "like to promote social programs and bash business." You "can't bash the rich and expect to have a good economy." Democrats say, "Hey, we're smarter than you. Give us all your money and we'll spend it." We "really" have to "worry about socialized medicine" and if "you want to turn out like France, put the Democrats in power."

Comment: Guess they ran out of time - they didn't mention Bill or Hill.
