The Ingraham Angle prevented Sen. Lindsey Graham from making a second fundraising appeal on the show last night.
As I wrote in my previous post, CNN documented at least 10 instances of Graham using Fox News as a fundraising vehicle. But CNN’s report aired before last night’s The Ingraham Angle. There, Graham made two more efforts before getting interrupted by a producer.
Here’s Graham’s first pass:

Here he tries again, unsuccessfully:

Whether Fox is mindful of how pathetic this looks or is now in anti-Graham lockstep with Lou Dobbs is unclear. One thing we can be reasonable sure of: Fox didn't cut off Graham over any journalistic ethics or the network wouldn't have allowed all the previous times.
Seems far too late for any new money to be of any help towards winning an election.
