Fox beats the Iran War Drums

September 27, 2007 at 10:14 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Just as predicted by The New Yorker’s George Packer, FOX News is assisting the Bush administration with a post-Labor Day PR campaign against Iran. The first half of Hannity & Colmes was devoted to it last night (9/25/07), complete with a preview of a FOX News special “Iran: The Ticking Bomb” to air on both Saturday and Sunday. And despite the fact that the public favors diplomacy as a solution, the network that claims “We like America” offered only hawkish guests hawking regime change. The only debate was over how to do it. With video.In Part 1, John “I want war against Iran” Bolton was the sole analyst regarding Ahmadinejad’s speech to the United Nations. “Democratic strategist” Kirsten Powers, subbing for Alan Colmes, once again was more eager to brandish her conservative talking points (Columbia should not have allowed Ahmadinejad to speak, he’s a very dangerous man, etc.) than to offer any real debate or balance. The video is currently posted on the Hannity & Colmes website.
