Chris Wallace and Sen. Bill Nelson Playing the Game

This morning FOX News' Chris Wallace asked Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) to address the allegations that the $800+bil spending bill contains dollars earmarked (pun intended) for social spending programs. Nelson answered by saying there's a lot of money in the bill to be used to stimulate the economy. He sidestepped the question and Wallace let him slide.

FOX News promotes itself as being the fair and balanced network and one that asks the tough questions that the Courics and Jennings of the world are unwilling to ask. FOX News is a cut above the mainstream press but it's still more of an enabler than it is an advocate when it comes to keeping politicians honest.
