Wow, this is interesting - Possible Right Wing Fox Reporter Given Campaign Duties....

And he is too keep his job as a reporter on Fox.

I can't say who just yet, but it is a prominent host of Fox and he will keep his "day job" reporting his take while working full time as a campaign manager for the GWB/Cheney ticket.

What do you guys think? Moral, immoral, or unimportant?

I think that he should do one or the other. And, I'd feel the same way if it were a CNN reporter.

Fox doesn't have any policy on conflict of interest like this. Carl Cameron was chosen to interview Bush while he was on the campaign trail in 2000 even though Cameron's wife was campaigning for Bush at that time. He even talked about the fact on camera before the interview with Bush.

Fox just doesn't care about objective journalism at all because they are a propaganda outlet for the Republican party.

"Right Wing Fox Reporter Given Campaign Duties"

Don't most of the Faux News reporters already work for the BushCo campaign? This ain't news....

I don't think I have ever commented on Carville playing a role in Kerry's campaign. Maybe you can point me to a post where I agreed with him doing such while still working for CNN. Aren't you just somewhat jumping to conclusions that I wholeheartedly agree with Carville doing both? And you call me the sucker, please.

Like I said in my earlier post. I'm on the fence. I would hope they could avoid the campaign rhetoric with their media employment.

I knew you would fall for it.

Actually, it is CNN and Carville - You know, the "objective" CNN you were praising just yesterday.

So, let's do the math, shall we? If a news station allows a full time employee to be a full time campaign advisor, they don't care about objective journalism as they are an outlet for the party in question.


Watch the spinning begin, my friends. The hypocrite detector has been pushed to overload.

When did Carville do anything for CNN but be a democratic shill? That's what he is paid to do.
Carl Cameron on the other hand is supposedly an objective reporter.

He's not supposed to be a Republican shill like Sean Hannity.
He's not supposed to be a Democratic shill like James Carville.

He supposed to be a reporter - something no one in their right mind would call Hannity and Carville.

Though I knew aboput Carville and Begala signing on with the Kerry campaign, I believed your topic header thinking that Fox just got even. Turns out your header was a LIE, sir. Are you going to admit that you lied?

The only lie that matters is that he claimed it was a reporter. That it was Fox or CNN doesn't really matter to me.

Sure - I lied. I proved hypocrisy in less than 3 minutes with my post.

I have no trouble admitting I lied. I had an ulterior motive, and I was successul in my endeavor.
