Fox Employee Comes Out Against Fox News

LA journo Bill Swadley tries to set the record straight. He works at Fox…but in no way endorses Fox News, Ann Coulter or Sarah Palin. His piece on Huffpo explains:

But now, after watching the vice-presidential debate and becoming even more terrified at the thought that this half-wit from Alaska could actually ascend to the presidency one day, I must come out of the closet. Everyone knows that Fox News is, to put it mildly, slanted right. Their producers and on-air personalities are culpable in their fiery promotion of the Bush agenda for the past eight years no matter how flawed. Since the current election cycle began they’ve been “spinning” what the McCain/Palin ticket really stands for (i.e. more of the same), often to the point of absurdity. (If you haven’t noticed the contrast of the anchors’ sunny demeanor when they mention the names of McCain or Palin versus the dark seriousness with which they utter the surname “Obama,” you aren’t paying attention.)
