Another flub by Fox

As I write this, about 5:35 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 27, a man named Michael Wilson - a Republican and a veteran of the Iraq war - is formally nominating Barack Obama for president at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

The only cable TV news network not carrying it? Fox. Gee, what a shock.

But then, why should Fox waste time showing the nomination of the nation's first-ever black presidential candidate when it can use the time to let Republican blowhard Karl Rove pontificate on screen about how Obama's speech on Thursday in a football stadium could backfire for the Democratic Party?

People used to refer to Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" and the "Weekend Update" segment on "Saturday Night Live" as "the fake news." In reality, that moniker belongs to Fox.
