Falling Fox

By Capt. Fogg

When one has come to instinctively mistrust the judgment of one's countrymen, it comes as a considerable and pleasant surprise to see public sentiment shift back toward agreement. Of course, where I live, it still seems like the Gospel According to Beck, and no one thinks he's rewriting history by pretending Tom Paine was a Christian nationalist. In fact, support for the network whose scripts are faxed in from the GOP and which makes million-dollar contributions to GOP candidates has only fallen marginally, but according to Public Policy Polling, amongst the public in general, Fox News has fallen from the pedestal to about the same level as CNN, and PBS is now seen as the most trustworthy. No wonder many Republicans want to get rid of it.

Do I doubt these results? Hell no, it's just too much like Christmas in January to want to ruin the buzz.
