The Gung Ho Morning Gang-News or propaganda?

"We're the Anti-'Today' show, says executive producer Matthew Singerman."

He is referring to the 7AM "Fox and Friends" Fox news channel's morning 'wake up show.' The two hosts are blatantly pro Bush Administration and pro war on Iraq. They don't even bother trying to sound unbiased, making fun of anti war protesters, or calling them subversives. They also 'wave the red flag' against the labor movement in America, recalling the dark days of McCarthyism. Are their shenanigans dangerous subversion's of the public trust? Most likely not. Their audience demographic is mostly knuckle dragging Neanderthals who peel dead squirrels off the highways and cook them for dinner. They aren't interested in unbiased news anyway. Still, It's troubling that such a large network has devoted itself to destroying the ideal of a free press to watch guard the public trust.
