Fox Shamelessly Proclaims Bush a "World Series Hero"

You can't even get away from politics in the World Series. Last night, prior to the 3rd game of the World Series, Fox aired a montage of great moments in World Series history.

The narrator said,
"The story of the World Series is told in seven chapters, each with their own tale, each with their own hero. These stories take us back in time to the place where we witnessed greatness."
Interspersed with the actual clips were "dramatizations" of the reactions of TV viewers.

Chapter 4 was Bush throwing out the first pitch in Game 3 of the 2001 World Series. As the clip rolled, the actors in the dramatization were laying it on thick. No only that, they were supposedly New York City firefighters.
FDNY 1: "Hey, the President's at Yankee Stadium. Price (?), come here."

FDNY 2: "Look at that."

FDNY 1: "Robert, Robert, check it out. He's in our uniform, he's wearing our uniform. I mean, look at this. All right, Mr. President, let's see what you got. A strike."
Greatness? Could you be any more ridiculous and self-serving than that? Looks like I have to stop watching Fox period, not just Faux News.

Watch the video.

how pathetic.
you'd think with him being out of office (kinda) soon that they'd start
kissing the collective asses of the
crop of idiots set to replace him.

sounds like it played out like a bad gap commercial..

not to say there are many good ones..
