Fox News Attacks: Edwards and Obama [VIDEO]

Why would it make sense for John Edwards and Barack Obama to go on a network that has spread false rumors about both ad nauseam?

Recently, Chris Wallace, a man who traded in a career in journalism for the more profitable world of propaganda, deigned to lecture Democratic presidential candidates on how they were just destroying their campaigns by not going on Fox.

"I think the Democrats are damn fools [for] not coming on Fox News," Wallace said. "And my guess is that once you get a nominee, they probably will come on, because they know that we get a lot of voters they are going to need if they are going to win the election."

Apparently, in between segments on bare bouncing breasts and Sean Hannity's defending white supremacists, it would make sense for John Edwards and Barack Obama to go on a network that has spread false rumors about both ad nauseam.

Now I enjoy going on Fox now and again myself, because beating up on hapless Republicans, whether on Fox or other cable channels, is such an absolutely cathartic experience. But to teach the obviously cerebrally challenged Mr. Wallace about how politics works, well Chris, you win by getting the most votes (or having your party control the Supreme Court).
