There is a clip of Neil Cavuto of Faux News ripping McCain for not having any convictions regarding Economic issues. Even arguing that, like him or not, Obama is very consistent and at least explains what he plans to do.

You have to see it. Link here

I am not sure what is happening at Fox but I think the writing is on the wall and this is just the latest sign that the right has given up and is ready to bring the knives out. This is fun to watch.

I am still nervous and know we need to keep working but I can't deny that the signs are encouraging.

Update: One more comment: Is it me or does Fox also seem to be really hurt by Obama's latest criticisms of their bias. I seem to recall that they used to  take that stuff with pride. Now the push back hard whenever they are called out. I hope ThirstyGator is on to something in his comment below:

First, understand that Rupert Murdoch is not an ideologue.  He is a profit seeker.  His product is MONEY, not ideas.  At the level of industry where he operates, there is nothing that can impede his profits as significantly as government regulation.  He has been successful globally by offering one or more major media outlets in the nations where he does business as a mouthpiece for the ruling party.  Now that the republicons seem to be on their way out, we can reasonably expect significant changes from FOX News as Murdoch cozies up to the new administration.  You'll recall that not long ago he organized a fund raiser for Senator Clinton.

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.
