This isn't "Fox News." Its a local Fox network affiliate, who knows where -certainly not here, so don't get too excited about another vast right wing conspiracy yet. The Fox News Channel is a totally different entity from local Fox Network affiliates. Also, it looks like the opening segement was cut-off by the newscasters, so I don't think we saw it in its entirety.
But...I don't think any of that is going to matter to you libs who base your entire life on the theory that Bush/Cheney are behind everything bad thing that has ever and will ever happen on this planet.
In case you aren't aware, the "fairness doctrine" isn't a "prohibit images of John McCain doctrine." It simply mandates that on controversial issues, both sides must be heard. The FCC decided that it was too hard to monitor nationally, so they dropped it. I guess they figured people could critically evaluate what they were watching or hearing. Libs don't respect your average American's level of intelligence and would prefer that the government control what they see and hear. Look no further than Joe Simitian's proposal that it be mandated by the state that children learn global warming propaganda, rather than letting teachers decide.
Finally, right-wingers tend to distrust John McCain and feel that at best he MIGHT be the lesser of 2 evils. If they were going to put a subliminal message on TV, wouldn't you think it would be someone like Ronald Reagan or Newt Gingrich?
Like I said before, I doubt any of you libs are going to apply rational thought to this YouTube clip, so go have fun!

Oh for heaven's sake. Now people who watch Fox are right wing crazies and support
evil Myanmar!! That's the trouble with the "new " Palo Alto. They think "Either think left of center or Democrat or move out." I like Fox, I watch it regularly, I intend to continue doing so. Get a life.

Fox News viewers, aka, Republicans... in case you didn't notice:
The public relations executive whom Senator John McCain’s campaign had chosen to run the Republican National Convention this summer resigned his post on Saturday after a magazine reported that his firm had lobbied for the military junta that runs Myanmar.
The executive, Doug Goodyear, said in a statement that he was stepping down as the coordinator of John McCain's Republican convention, which will be held Sept. 1-4 in Minneapolis-St. Paul, “so as not to become a distraction in this campaign.”
“I continue to strongly support John McCain for president and wish him the best of luck in this campaign,” the two-sentence statement concluded.
Mr. Goodyear is the chief executive and a founding partner of the DCI Group, which has offices in Washington and Phoenix. He offered his resignation after Newsweek reported that his firm had been paid $348,000 in 2002 to represent the junta.
The rulers of Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, have been widely condemned for stymieing relief efforts after a cyclone ravaged the country’s coastal areas on May 3, killing thousands.

Viewers of all the other networks: AKA Far left Democrats in case you didn't notice:
Jeremiah Wright, whose church Obama supported with his presence and pocketbook for 20 years, marrying and raising his children in teh church, has recently retired from the church and bought a $1.6 million house for his retirement.
Wright, who was on the campaign committee for Obama, retired so as not to be a distraction to Obama's campaign after it was revealed that he was a racist and hate mongerer, spreading vile to his parishioners about the USA starting the AIDS virus, deserving 9/11, and continuing to enslave him. Unlike Doug Goodyear, who had nothing to do with representing any military junta anywhere, and is simply stepping down because he knows the ridiculous mindset of our media, Mr. Wright was forced to step down because he was fully and directly responsible for his own words and church policy.
Gosh, put this way, it is clear how awful McCain is, isn't it? This is the worst you can come up with?
