Fox News Can't Afford to LoseWhy should I even say anything that can't be proved? That couldn't, except with the words of a Rupert Murdoch, top of News Corp., parent Corp. of Fox News, or a Roger Ailes, head of Fox News, subsidary of News Corp., in any way be substantiated? Well, you heard it here first? (see comments) There are different levels of disaster for any Democratic victory in '04, although Fox has played gently enough with Clark and Lieberman that most of the following scenario will be muted, but right now it looks like Doctor, Governor, one time Stockbroker, Howard Brush Dean III, is going to be the nominee. I argue that a Dean win would mean the following losses for Fox News, the American flagship of the Murdoch machine commonly known as NewsCorp, but whose legal fictions prevent any precise naming. Just remember "Rupert Murdoch."
