David Neiwert makes the argument that the midterm election is less a referendum on Barack Obama than it is one on Fox News. The money quote:
But it’s obvious that we don’t really have a Republican Party anymore. It’s now a wholly owned subsidiary of Fox News. And that’s who this election is really about.
I’m not sure I’d go that far but it is not hard to imagine how worse a shape the Republican Party would be in were it not for the ceaseless effort bullshit on the part of Fox. If not for Fox, where would Sarah Palin get to bleat her nonsense each day? Where would conservative candidates who refuse to speak to their local media get to voice their thoughts unchallenged? Where would the Tea Party be if not for Fox who has been cheerleading the astroturf movement from day one?
Really. Who would champion the causes of bigotry, homophobia, Islamophobia and overall hate if not for Fox and its cabal of delusional hatemongers? And most important, where would the unwashed masses of fools turn to for their daily fill of head-spinning lies and misinformation if not for the yeoman’s work done by Fox News?
Maybe it’s not the Fox election but Neiwert is dead on the money with this line.
The entire narrative of this coming election has been dictated by Fox. Is it any wonder that the conventional wisdom now perfectly reflects what Fox has been dictating?
Nope. It’s no wonder at all.
