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.

Kinda on the fence. Hopefully he will be able to abstain from campaign rhetoric into his 'fair and balanced' reporting.

If Begalla and Carville can stay at CNN after joining Kerry's campaign, I guess what's good for the goose....

But, personally, I think it's unethical and a breach of the public trust.

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.

begala, carville, hannity, colmes, & the rest of the extremist hacks could jump off a bridge for all I care. I try really hard not to spend any of my precious lifetimes' minutes listening to their crap anyway. Both sides do it & its all bull****. Just my take...

Give me Cronkite with just the facts!

Well, as much as I hate Fox's commentary types... They aren't exactly "reporters". Guys like O'Reilly and Hannity are Republican shills. That's what they are paid for.

Same is true of Carville and Begalla.

But guys like Carl Cameron, Tony Snow, Brit Hume, etc who shill for the Republican party while pretending to be a objective journalists is the real problem.

And this clown isn't pretending to be "objective"? I tried watching this guy the other night & he is just as bad - left - as the righties on Fox. His name Aaron Brown.

Nobody claimed that zealots were particularly quick on the draw. It was like shooing jAZocrites in a barrel.
