Listen to Senator Coburn's audio file at this link.
Senator Coburn, a leading figure in his party, charges that Fox is biased and engages in unwarranted personal attacks and phony ad hominems against nice people like Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. The Senator adds that instead of listening to what makes "good" news on Fox, we should be careful that we know the facts.
This would not be news to even an Eskimo in the North Pole, except that it comes from Senator Coburn, the neo-conservative, ultra Republican Religious Senator from Kansas.
And for good measure, Senator Coburn admits Speaker Pelosi is not the devil as Fox blasts all day long, and says she is a nice person. Coburn is says let's focus on policy, on facts, and on reality, and let's not just listen to Fox News, but also read sources like the New York Times.
Thank you Senator Coburn for your honesty and your civility. I hope your party listens to you instead of sending its hit men like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity after you. I hope you have the courage to state this message on television to a national audience, instead of on a much lower profile to local radio. I hope you can convince your party to join the Democrats in a call for civility because they are asking for exactly the same thing you asked for here.
