This weekend I was idly flipping channels and happened to land on Faux News' "Beltway Boys."  They were discussing incumbent senators who face uphill battles in their reelection bids.

And guess what?  After all of last week's craziness regarding their incessant labeling of Mark Foley as a Democrat, here's what they put up while discussing the Rhode Island Senate race between Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R) and Sheldon Whitehouse (D):

Yep, through Fox's looking-glass, the Republican candidate now is the leader, Whitehouse!

I have no idea what, if anything, can be done about this now epidemic misuse of the Chyron graphics machine, but it's really getting ridiculous.  I mean, Jesus H. Christ in a chicken basket, how many times are they going to pull this crap?  And what can be done about it?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
