Fox News Sunday Introduces “Obama Watch”

There have been subtle and not so subtle messages to voters throughout this election painting Barack Obama as radical and un-American. Most recently, over the weekend, there was wide-spread media coverage of Obama’s “anti-American” and “racial” reverend in Chicago.

But none of these are quite as dramatic as Fox’s new “Obama Watch.” If you aren’t already convinced that Barack Obama is an extremist, you might want to tune in to Fox News Sunday. The new feature, announced by Chris Wallace, will give its viewers “a weekly update on Barack Obama.” Under the auspices of the network’s ongoing hopes to urge the Dems to debate on Fox, “Obama Watch” will be set to a ticking time clock a la 24. I’ll give Fox News credit for one thing, they left no subliminal message unturned. If the beep beep, beep beep of Jack Bauer’s hit show doesn’t say “Obama is a terrorist” I don’t know what does.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
