Be thankful for Fox News
Question of the Day
Federal Communications Commission Commissioner Michael Copps recently said, “America is not producing the body of news that democracy needs to conduct its civil dialogue.” Translation: Fox News and other sources are reporting too much news on the shortcomings of big government to Americans, a truth that hurts big government and the bureaucrats who enjoy its power. So Fox should limit its reporting like the sophisticated, major news networks. In similar fashion, Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV, West Virginia Democrat, wants Fox to just “go away,” and no doubt this is because like Mr. Copps, he believes a free and open press inhibits his agenda.
Like Lafayette at Yorktown, Rupert Murdoch has stormed America’s news beaches and took a strong stand for unfiltered news and a strong defense of our Constitution. Fox has not risen to the top of American news by sensationalism or sleight-of-hand. They’ve risen because they’re fresh and open, and quite simply because they report the truth.
Mr. Rockefeller and Mr. Copps - like many others who think they know what is best for us - are mistaken about the origins of America, our freedoms and our founding principles. The Founding Fathers said and thought that self-government as a nation is dependent upon morally self-governed individuals grounded in faith and religion. Many in America’s news media and public schools will not report, teach or tolerate these facts, but Fox does so without apology. Whether Fox can continue with this clarity of purpose, only time will tell, but to those of us who understand Fox’s role in bolstering our First Amendment, we will always be extremely grateful.
