The other revolving door

I flipped by Fox News last night only to see a pilot for a talk show hosted by the fresh off of a Republican presidential race Mike Huckabee. Although people in politics moving into journalism already happens much too often, Fox has again taken it to another level.

At any given moment you can turn to Fox and get "analysis" from Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Frank Luntz, Rick Santorum, Tom DeLay or some other firebreathing partisan hack who is barely -if at all - out of the political scene. Fox isn't merely blurring the line between reporting and promoting Republican views, it's erasing it.

It really does make one think of Pravda.
