Fox News: Our Brand is Still Crisis

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


The Huffington Post has obtained one of those infamous internal Fox News memos. Here’s FNC’s veep for news rallying the troops after the election:

The elections and Rumsfeld’s resignation were a major event, but not the end of the world. The war on terror goes on without interruption…. [L]et’s be on the lookout for any statements from the Iraqi insurgents, who must be thrilled at the prospect of a Dem-controlled congress…. The question of the day, and indeed for the rest of bush’s [sic] term, is: What’s the Dem plan for Iraq?… Just because Dems won, the war on terror isnt’ [sic] over.

Fox’s website may have gone blue, but it looks like the Kool-Aid over there is still bright red.
