Ben Smith scoffs at the softball "questions" Greta lobbed at Palin last night. It seems to me that Fox is no longer a news channel and no longer an opinion channel. It's a propaganda channel in which the hosts are actual leaders of various Republican party constituencies or mouthpieces for certain Republican politicians (van Susteren long ago abandoned any pretense of not being a p.r. employee for the Palins) and use the channel for political organizing. So we don't even have feisty debates any more. We have cloying propaganda events.
It's a free country and they can do what they want. But Fox News isn't even opinion journalism in any normal sense any more.
