Just As I Thought

Another closet for Foley to come out of

Well, it makes perfect sense — most people who watch Fox News are hardly critical thinkers. They tend to believe whatever Bill O’Reilly tells them. Thus, the best way to spin the Rep. Foley scandal is to brainwash these people into believing he is a Democrat.

Just amazing. Fox’s O’Reilly Factor just covered the Mark Foley (R-FL) issue in two different segments, one of them with a page who says he received communications from Foley, and another with Ann Coulter.

Never mind the content of either segment for now. Incredibly, during a total of three different cutaways to video footage of Foley, he was labelled at the bottom of the screen eachtime as “(D-FL)” !

Three different times. In two different segements. Each cutaway about 15 seconds or more. Showing Foley as a DEMOCRAT. Amazing. [BradBlog]

And then…

And again:

A brilliant strategy — the Republicans pretend that he’s not one of them, the media (who, as I’ve already established, doesn’t check for typos anymore) play along, and soon Foley is one of those gay pedophile Democrats that we’ve all heard about.
