Fox News Channel's "Wishing Well"

Here is an amusing little story about Fox News Channel's penchant, when provoked, for sassy little quotes that somehow conclude with wishing someone well.

The AP reporter tries to make the phrase sound tantamount to the Godfather's kiss to Fredo; in actuality, it simply accompanies entertainingly tart observations about those who have attacked FNC.

Fox's lack of pomposity is one of the reasons so many viewers love it -- along with its "fair and balanced" news coverage, of course.

Incredible. Carol, you amaze me in your consistency. You are a walking, talking boiler plate.

Quite possible because the truth doesn't lie?

You can go over to daily Kos and see boiler plate that isn't true if you require variety.

This might also be a contributing factor to why FOX ratings have been in free fall for the past year and a half.

Is that true Jill? Could there be other reasons as well? Possibly better ones? I still watch Fox and nothing said of Olberman or the others has made me watch them. I already know what to expect there.
