Good for Edwards

Been neglecting this subject, but good for him for saying he won't participate in Fox News' Democrat Party debate. The problem with Fox isn't that it's conservative, it's that it's basically a propaganda outlet for the GOP. The difference is an important one. Back when Clinton was in power, their true nature was somewhat obscured by the fact that were doing what media should be doing at least in broad terms, which is be skeptical about the actions of the powerful. Back when Bush was popular, it was also easier for people to fail to understand just what Fox does on a daily basis. But now that they spend 24/7 propping up Mr. 30% and his gang of incompetents, the absurdity of considering them to be a "news channel" should be apparent.
