I was watching inauguration-day coverage on CNN and decided to see what was going on at its redneck cousin FOX News, just for the heck of it.
FOX was covering the Bushes getting onto their plane at Andrews AFB, practically in slow motion. The camera lingered on the empty door of the plane for about 10 seconds, as commentators identified nearly everyone at the airfield and told us in minute detail what they're going to be doing with themselves after their eight years of epic FAIL (aside from drinking and crying).

Over at CNN, the departure took about a minute. Back to Obama.

I've posted "The Top 10 Obama Smears" at Swallowing the Camel.

I am happy that I don't get FOX news. How can a network that brought us the Simpsons and Family Guy be so reactionary?

I'm still trying to figger that one out, too. It seems to be related to the fact that liberal newspapers tend to be very serious, while conservative newspapers usually have girls in bikinis on page 3.
