Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

More Conservative Hypocrisy

This is from a Fox News commentary by David Boaz of the Cato Institute. He is urging that Public Broadcasting (NPR and PBS) be privatized (i.e., become 100% beholden to corporate interests, as is the rest of the media).

"We wouldn’t want the federal government to publish a national newspaper. Why should we have a government television network and a government radio network? If anything should be kept separate from government and politics, it’s the news and public affairs programming that Americans watch. When government brings us the news—with all the inevitable bias and spin—the government is putting its thumb on the scales of democracy. It’s time for that to stop."

These same people support:
1. The US propaganda radio in Arabic
2. The fake "news" clips by the
3. The Pentagon's brand new "military channel" - a 24-hour government run propaganda network for the Bush administration's policies.

If by "same people" you mean FOX you are probably right. But don't be so sure the Cato Institute isn't consistently libertarian. They are pretty nuts on the libertarian scale. FOX is being very selective in which Cato Institute opinions they give air time to.
