Dems Appear on Evil, Propaganda Cable News Network

Posted by Teresa at 3:18 PM
How dare they go on a network that doesn't agree with the extreme left! I guess
Senators Obama and Clinton didn't get the memo that they should only appear
on Keith Olbermann, Bill Moyers, and Bill Maher:
The nation’s top Democrats are suddenly rushing to appear
on the Fox News Channel, which they once had shunned as
enemy territory as the nemesis of liberal bloggers.

The d├ętente with Fox has provoked a backlash from progressive
bloggers, who contend the party’s leaders are turning their
backs on the base — and lending credibility and legitimacy to
the network liberals love to hate — in a quest for a few swing

In a span of eight days, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), Sen. Hillary
Rodham Clinton (D-NY.) and Democratic National Committee
Chairman Howard Dean are all taking their seats with the network
that calls itself “fair and balanced” but is widely viewed as
skewing conservative.
With the party’s presidential contest reduced to hand-to-hand
combat, Democrats are turning to the ratings leader among cable
news channels in a clear rebuff to the liberal activists known as
the Netroots.

Markos Moulitsas, founder of the leading liberal site Daily Kos,
told Politico’s Michael Calderone: "Democrats are being idiotic
by going on that network.”

Ari Melber, the Net movement correspondent for The Nation,
told Politico by phone that progressive activists and the
Netroots are “not happy about it.”
