Fox Sides With Phil Gramm on "Mental Recession" and "Whiners" - Provides "Proof" that He's Right

Reported by Melanie - July 10, 2008 -

You heard what John McCain's economic adviser Phil Gramm said yesterday about America being a "nation of whiners," steeped in "mental depression" right? And you heard that John McCain threw him under the bus, right? Well guess what? Fox is on Gramm's side. (Whatever happened to all that loyalty crapola Fox ranted and raved about when it came to W?)

I'm talking about Mike Gallagher's appearance on Your World w/Neil Cavuto today (July 10, 2008). Gallagher is a (crazed) radio talk show host who thinks that growing the economy at 1% is "holding steady." (In other words, 1% is good?! What a joke. China's "Second-quarter economic growth may have dipped to 10.3 percent, from 10.6 percent in the first quarter." Now that's growth!)

Again, via Gallagher, Fox reinforced Gramm, not McCain:

"I think Phil Gramm has the guts to say what a lot of you business experts are reading between the lines. I mean, let's face it, David, growth is holding steady at 1% (counting on Fox's audience to be ignorant about how bad that is}, we are still the dominant superpower. We always were and when you talk about factors like consumer confidence, let's be real. That's a subjective thing! And don't think for one moment that the whiny news media and gloom and doom pundits in the mainstream press aren't impacting the way people are viewing the economy. ... This has become a self fufilling prophecy. ... Phil Gramm put it best - misery sells newspapers."

Meanwhile, in the midst of airing chyrons like this:


and this,


Fox stuck this chyron in, as if to "prove" that Gramm is right and Americans are just a bunch of hypocritical whiners:


Comment: Oy ve. Kinda gives you an idea of how radical Fox is, doesn't it?
