If they can't get an objective news executive, at least hire someone with a brain.




John Moody is Senior Vice President, News Editorial for the Fox News Channel.

As a Fox News executive, Moody received attention for circulating internal memos which have been described as encouraging political bias in Fox's reporting. Moody's memos were featured in Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch's War on Journalism.

Moody was the one who decided to exclude Ron Paul from the 1-6-2008 Fox News Republican presidential forum.

On this one issue, Dems are right

Roger Ailes would have to go as well... I would venture to guess he is just as guilty in slanting Murdock's station

Fire him? Heck he'll probably get a Presidential Medal of Freedom. He'll be in good company with George "slam dunk" Tenet.

They won't be fired as long as Murdoch owns Faux.

Even if they were, they would just be replaced with clones.

Much of our media is cloned anyway, such a shame for true democracy.

Make no mistake, Fox is Murdoch's creation. It and all the rest of News Corp assets represents his views. The only thing that'll lead to people getting fired is a drop in ratings.

How about a quote out his own mouth?

Wow, there is no ambiguity that he was a cheerleader of Iraq war and deliberately pushed Bush/Cheney Iraq war policy as a news mogul.

It's such a disgrace that it's called a news network.
