Of cable news, neocons, and the election

By way of a follow-up to my previous thoughts (here and here) about the Iraqi election, the media coverage, and how the Bushies are reacting, this article from James Wolcott caught my eye:

Yesterday on one of the Fox financial shows, James Rogers, author of Investment Biker, commodities guru, and neighbor-down-the-block (an utterly irrelevant detail I thought I'd toss in to make this blog sound more "personal"), was asked by Fox News whether the elections in Iraq would be successful. Rogers said, "They'll be successful because the media will say they're successful," adding impishly, "Fox News probably already has the results."
