CONFIRMED: FOX NEWS fed talking points by the White House

Conservatives like to be duped, reassured, reinforced... it's integral to the authoritarian mentality.

Constitutional violations and overt propaganda are nothing new for the Bush Administration. Freedom of the Press means freedom from government control and political use - i.e. propaganda.

Former Bush Press Secretary Scott McCellan confirmed what we all suspected.

“Certainly there were commentators and other pundits at FOX News, that were helpful to the White House. ... Yes it was something that we at the White House were doing, giving them [Fox News] talking points.... It was done frequently, especially on high-profile issues.”--Scott McClellan

There you have it... Fair and Balanced. I report, you decide.
