Fox Covers for Jim Bunning (R-KY)

If you’ve been paying attention, you know that Senator Jim Bunning, Republican from Kentucky, is singlehandedly blocking a bill that was expected to pass the Senate on Friday.  Among other things, the bill would have extended unemployment benefits and COBRA subsidies to help laid-off workers with their health insurance.  The repercussions also affect “some rural satellite TV viewers. As of Monday, those customers could find their TV screens blank because the program that allows delivery of their pictures will also lapse.” And Medicare patients will suffer too, as it may force “many physicians to limit the number of Medicare and TRICARE patients they see in order to keep their practice doors open.”

Why a guy huh?

So how is Fox “News” treating this issue, which could potentially touch the lives of many of its viewers?  I can’t find anything about it on Fox’s homepage.  Here’s a screenshot of the “above the fold” part of the page.  Nada.  Even after looking through the small print below it, I still couldn’t find anything.

Gosh, golly, gee.  What a surprise.

I’m thinkin’ I should merge two of the categories I set up on this blog:  Fox News and Republicans.

    I think Bunning is a hero. Someone has to stand up for unsustainable spending even if it is difficult. If we keep going the way we are the whole country will collapse and there will be no help from any where. All he is saying is find the money from somewhere before spending it. What bank in the world would give a loan to a business if there was no way to pay it back even if the loan was for the purpose of feeding the poor.
