Howard Wolfson is joining Lanny Davis at Faux news, to, as Howard put it:
""Fox has the largest audience in cable television -- many of its viewers are independents who will help decide the next election," said Wolfson of his decision. "It's critically important for strong progressives to be talking to and offering analysis to that audience."
Off camera, Wolfson snorted "Hell, they are lining my pockets with cash and I can keep my other job as a lobbyist/consultant! All I gotta do is continue to slime Obama just like I did in the primary campaign, but, of course, be "Fair and balanced" about it-What a HOOT!"
Faux immediately announced a new show entitled:
"Concerned about Obama" with Wolfson and Davis giving a daily update about "concerns" that progressives need to have about Obama.
"It's important that progressives know how concerned they should be about Obama" said Davis on the set of his new show. "OK, it's true, the rest of the Faux shows are basically tongue baths for McCain, but we can't let Obama off that easy, we need to hold him to "a higher standard."
Faux has reported that talks have broken down with Mark Penn for his Faux news contract, as his demands to "have more quality time with Hannity then Dick Morris" has not been met by Faux management.
