After Hours with Cal Thomas

May 26, 2005

Lull the Masses with Sex, Lies, and More Sex (w/Thanks to Bill Moyers)

When Neil Cavuto opened his "business news" show today (May 27, 2005) claiming that stocks were up because "al Zarqawi could be down," and that Fox is "abreast" of some news about Hooters Air "milking" its business concept, I knew it was going to be one of those alternate-reality kind of days on Your World. Sure enough, I was right.

Mitch McConell Filibuster Fibs Unfettered on FOX

Another day, another Republican allowed to misstate the truth about the filibuster on FOX News. Unfortunately, it's becoming the norm rather than the exception.

The Real Reason the Right "Cares" about Terri Schiavo

Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family, and the Rev. Pat Robertson were both guests today (March 31, 2005) on the Fox "business" show, Your World w/Neil Cavuto.

Thomas complained that "We are rapidly moving away from a concept of true moral guilt and just desserts to a psychobabble view of behavior. No one is personally responsible for his choices or behavior any more and the court is reflecting that post-modern attitude."

Feeding the News Corp. Beast

Hannity & Colmes did yeoman's work for their boss, News Corporation, Fox News's parent company this past week, and Cal Thomas will bring up the rear tonight.

On Tuesday, March 1, 2005, Tom Fenton, the former senior European correspondent for CBS News was a guest. Fenton's book, Bad News: The Decline of Reporting, the Business of News, and the Danger to Us All, was published by ReganBooks, a News Corporation subsidiary, and was released that day. Having Fenton as a guest not only helped sell the book, it provided a perfect opportunity to bash that "liberal" media bastion, CBS News.
