This is also one of my pet peeves. At the (US Govt) installation where I work, they at least try to be fair and split the public TV screens between CNN and Fox. I think this is the perfect illustration of the stupidity of Republican “leaders”. They are absolutely clueless as to the holistic, 24/7 nature of the struggle they face. I am sure that if Fox dominated public screens (airports, etc), Democrats in Congress would attempt to force a change, because they think strategically. But Republicans are mired in myopic, purely-tactical thinking.
By the same token, when Republican candidates allow the opposition to determine the debate moderators, not only do they suffer tactical defeat, but their acquiescence also helps to de-legitimize the one network that is reasonably fair, and thus has strategic implications.
Can't anyone here play this game?
>> Republicans are mired in myopic, purely-tactical thinking.
HAAAAAAA! Good one.
Republicans have NO ideals, NO principles, NO character, NO backbone. They don’t think, PERIOD. Strategically OR tactically.
They don’t lead, they react to what the other side throws at them. Ineffectively. Comically.
The (R)s only “quality” is that they’re merely rudderless and inept, whereas the ‘Rats are malignant evil. It’s not much, but it’s something.

In terms of agenda and ideology, there is little difference between CNN and FOX.
