Clear days on the propaganda front

A look at the running labels the networks were using during the Bush speech tonight:

Presidential address on Iraq (ABC, CBS)

Presidential address (CNN, MSNBC)

(It's a bit hard to tell what NBC was up to; in these parts, it had no verbiage at all, with the president relegated to the upper left corner and Those Tygers -- peace with honor again, by the way -- dominating the screen)

Iraq: Moving forward (Fox)

In case you missed the hint, or couldn't wait up for Sean Hannity, here's Shep Smith's closer on the Fox speech coverage: "The new way forward is established, as laid out tonight by the White House."

The eyebrow-raising moment for me was how ol' Shep actually cut into the final word of the president's closing remarks. Jeeze, Shep, can't wait for that final "good night" to start horning in?

Fev, you misspelled the name of the network. The correct way is "Faux News."

Sorry about that. Caught a slight case of low back vowel merger over in St. Louis last week. Please make corrections in the margin with pencil.

Check out this clip of NBC's speech coverage.

Nothing partisan here, but the extremes of network broadcasting are always amusing ...
