  •  The GOP and FOX News has always (0+ / 0-)

    been an unholy alliance, with both entities benefiting from the other.  The Republicans have long felt that FOX was their friend, the one network they could count on to distort reality to the GOP's advantage.  

    Relying on it so much just cost them pretty dearly, though.  We heard talk of a Romney landslide which did not appear to materialize.  We heard how lovely the emperor's clothes are when in fact he was all but butt naked.

    FOX is in place in part, maybe in full, to advance the GOP's agenda and its candidates, both of which took a serious hit last week in the American election.  

    It will be interesting to see if the unholy alliance becomes a platform for doubling down on exhausted memes or if a crew is brought in to tinker with the works.
