As the election results rolled in Tuesday night, Fox News showed anew that it is the Republican network.
The panel of so-called experts, directed by anchor Brit Hume, found every excuse to explain the Democratic takeovers in the House and Senate. It was pitiful.
The motto of Foxwe report, you decideis laughable. It should be we report, we decide.
Fred Barnes, Bill Kristol, Mort Kondracke, et al. talked about more conservative Democrats winning. So what? The Republicans were losing, but they couldn't seem to swallow it.
Roger Ailes, the founding father of Fox News, is smart, and he has positioned Fox to gain conservative viewers. After all, it is Vice President Cheney's favorite. Many Republicans I know swear by it as impartial. What planet do they live on?
But Ailes was a tough GOP consultant before he went to Fox with his idea to take advantage of right-wing voters.
On this election night, the Fox commentators were trying to find alibis for the GOP losses.
