Mayerson’s Open Letter to Fox News

PH2005071501462.gif

WaPo columnist Harold Meyerson wrote an open letter to Fox News who suddenly seems…uhm…as unpopular as their president…George Bush not Rupert Murdoch…well maybe both:

In that sense, your work remains dangerous and disintegrative to the nation. But it is also, more narrowly, tactically, for now, a great gift to liberals and Democrats. You ensure the ongoing Palinization and marginalization — electorally, the terms are synonymous — of the Republican Party.

And to think that you’re doing all this not on the Democratic National Committee’s dime but on Rupert Murdoch’s.

Cheers from your new fan,

Harold
