What the hell is wrong with Fox News execs? So the dimbulbs on illiterate dementia variety hour Fox & Friends broadcast a four-minute straight-up vicious propaganda campaign ad against Barack Obama yesterday. What’s the problem? This is just how the network rolls. But now we have senior Fox News execs saying they didn’t authorize it. This is no way to support Team Red, senior execs. As a blogger once said, NEVER APOLOGIZE, NEVER EXPLAIN.
Yeah, we know we’re doing exactly what Fox News hacks want by spreading this video after they’ve already deleted it, but who cares? It’s funny.
We like the carousel with the pig! What do you like? Oh. Well, Bill Shine simply did not care for any of it:
Bill Shine, the executive vice president for programming at Fox News, issued a statement about the video on Wednesday afternoon.
“The package that aired on ‘Fox & Friends’ was created by an associate producer and was not authorized at the senior executive level of the network,” Shine said. “This has been addressed with the show’s producers.”
Fox News later confirmed that the video had been removed from both its main website and the network’s aggregation site, foxnation.com.
And now it is an honorable network, forever.
