RE: “But why? Why not SAY SOMETHING? Both of them know that you can’t draw an equals sign between Reagan and FDR, but neither says so. It would seem like the most basic element for a “political” show — even a crazy biased one — to correct batshit nonsense that doesn’t even rally your own side (that may even depress your side). They say nothing (in this clip). What fucking protocol do they imagine they are beholden to?”
I feel your outrage and frustation, but in the end, they’re Fox News anchors, so are you really that surprised? The protocol they follow is to just nod, smile, and back up the constant bullshit they shovel into their audience’s faces. I really think they honestly believe that the majority of their viewers are not going to catch–or aren’t smart enough to latch onto–such misguided historical analogies. They’re humorless, evil drones who are completely out of touch with anyone who’s capable of critical thinking. I mean, look, they think Scott “Jock” Stapp/Creed is relevant. Might as well get Fred Durst’s Romney endorsement in an interview as well.
Exactly. Not to mention invoking the New Deal and “breaking down walls,” whatever that means.
