Of course, when approached by the NY Times about the deal, company spokesman Jack Horner came out of his corner to deny any connection between what the corporate owners do and what is presented on Fox News. asserting,
"There is a strict wall between business and editorial."
Cool. So we must conclude that it is strictly a seasonal coincidence that the news department reflects the company line across the board.
I can't let Horner off that easily. To him goes the the Grumpy Abe Linguistic Lunacy (GALL) Award and it won't be a coincidence.
