FOX News catches a chill from AlterNet

FOX News ran a report last Thursday on Brit Hume's Political Grapevine highlighting Stan Cox's article, "America's Air-Conditioned Nightmare."

Great that AlterNet is on FOX's radar, but note that there's no challenge made to any of Cox's assertions.

Full of Cold Air?
The American left is blaming a new culprit in the country's turn towards the Republican Party in recent years -- air conditioning.

The piece also blames air conditioning for a "social chill" that's weakened the political system, making people "less inclined to gather spontaneously" and crippling grassroots political action.
