It is, only for right wing fanatics.

Yup, they sure do. Then again, no one EVER accused a major network, news or
otherwise, of intelligence. NBC cancelled TOS after 79 episodes. 37 years
later the franchise lives on.

I just want to drop into this discussion about Fox a hearty plug for Al
Franken's new book, Lies and the Lying Liares Who Tell Them.  The book is
relentlessly researched, and is a massive indictment of some of the falsehoods
that have been perpetrated by those with a vested interest in doing so.  The
section on Fox News is worth the price of admission all by itself.
