Dems will talk to dictators but not appear on Fox News

Thomas Lifson
E.J. Dionne pens an approving essay about Democrats who boycott Fox News for its sin of not being as liberal as the rest of the television news industry. Of course in E.J.'s universe FNC broadcasts "right-tilting programming" while CBSNBCABCMSNBCCNN are only "supposedly ‘liberal media.'" That's a neat trick, combining scare quotes around "liberal media" and sticking in the adjective "supposedly" in front of the phrase. I guess he really, really doesn't think they are liberal. Of course the American public overwhelmingly disagrees with Dionne and think the media are liberal.

By the standards propounded by global warming enthusiasts, his position makes Dionne a liberal media denier.

Dionne thinks that the boycott is harming Fox. But it is interesting to note that if the boycott continues, voters will notice that there are two types of politicians: those who are willing to appear on any media outlet, including hostile ones (i.e., Republicans on all the other channels), and those who only appear on friendly media (Democrats boycotting Fox.)

I wonder who exactly will be hurt by that?
