Been there, heard that

In a previous posting here, I commented about an on-air exchange between Mitt Romney and Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer.

Romney had just told a bald-faced lie about polling data, and I was chastising Hemmer for not calling him on it.

I wrote the following:

"Hemmer – who was a good newsman at CNN before Fox lured him away and brainwashed him – knew full well that Romney was lying, yet he did nothing to set the record straight. And that makes him, and the bad joke of a network for which he works, complicit in the deception."

The date of that posting? Sept. 2, 2008.

Four years later, Romney hasn't changed. Four years later, Fox hasn't changed.

Some things NEVER change.
