Media Matters' Burns: Fox News Is "No Longer A News Organization. This Is A Political Organization"

Eric Burns gets it spot on here when he argues that "the Bush administration in exile" over at Fox News can no longer even be called a news organisation. It is a political organisation and it's becoming impossible to pretend that it's not.

It's now stopped even pretending that it's not the broadcasting wing of the Republican party with it's daily rants against the Obama administration and it's attempts to turn the tea parties into a genuine people's revolt against Obama's "socialism". The simple truth is that if the Republican party themselves were to take over Fox, it's content would not change an iota. That's how right wing that channel has now become.
