The Fox Nation just makes things up:
Today's story/headline: Media Attacks Palin Co-Author: 'Evangelical Partisan'
, which links to a politico.com article
. In it, here are all the negative elements about Lynn Vincent, the co-author:
- Some Palin backers cautioned against associating the politician with the views of her hired co-author.
- [Conservative blogger Robert Stacy McCain, a co-author with Vincent] didn't respond to an email from POLITICO, but brushed off to the Washington Independent's any attempt to link Vincent to his own controversial past remarks on race.
That's it. By the way, the Washington Independent
is not exactly CBS news. No printing presses, just a website.
The vast majority of the story was a neutral observation of Palin and her fans, e.g.:
Two other Vincent books reviewed Wednesday by POLITICO reveal a lively writing style and deep roots in evangelical Christianity.
What's notable isn't the Fox Nation lying. What's notable is Fox contining to create a division within the media. Fox viewers/readers are constantly being told not to believe other sources of information
. That's what a cult does.
Quiddity: "Fox viewers/readers are constantly being told not to believe other sources of information."
I'm glad you're watching FNC perceptively. I don't watch it but now that you mention that point I know I've seen it in some of the material that wafts my way.
Isn't Sarah Palin's book "GOING ROUGE" all about make-up? She seemed to be making it up during the McCain/Palin campaign.
