How about all those "deep divisions" between the Obama and Clinton camps at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday?

Did you see when Hillary stormed the stage and demanded to be the party's nominee?
Did you see when all her supporters walked out of the hall?
Did you notice how Bill and Hillary turned their backs on Joe Biden throughout his speech?
And I was shocked -- shocked, I say! -- when Bill took his turn at the mike and told everyone to vote for John McCain and called Obama a dangerous Muslim.
And Chelsea mooning Obama's wife was completely unexpected!

Sorry, Fox. No such luck.

But then again, if any of those things had happened, Fox probably wouldn't have noticed. After all, the home of unfair and imbalanced news didn't even bother to show the historic roll-call vote that resulted in the nomination of the first-ever black candidate for president.

How the hell do you cover a political convention and not show the key event for which the delegates gather?

Fox News is a joke. And a bad one, at that.
