My latest post is up at David Horowitz’s NewsReal blog (which just invested in new servers etc. because it is getting so popular!)
The day Fox News finally got picked up by a Canadian cable provider, I jumped into the car after work and told my husband to drive home fast.
I couldn’t wait to experience an alternative to Bush-hating, anti-Israel (and up here, anti-American) tv news.
I thumbed “181″ into the remote — and there was Brit Hume. In those days, he was still anchoring the six o’clock news. It was about 6:20, so Hume was talking to an in-studio guest, whom the chryon identified as Reverend Someone or Other.”
The first thing I heard was Brit Hume asking his guest what it said in the Gospel of John about charity.
I felt like Oprah Winfrey, who says the first time her neighbors saw the Supremes on the Ed Sullivan Show, they started yelling out their windows: “Come quick! Black people on the television!”
My husband and I gaped at each other. Jesus on the news?!
“I think we’re in Kansas…” I quipped.
