SOME OF HER BEST FRIENDS ARE LIBERALS

Reading this defense of FOX News (pasted here from Susan Estrich (via Dan, er, Finnegan), you would get the idea that she bears the cross and marches into work every day to get out a progressive message in a hostile environment.  If only.  Susan Estrich serves the same purpose as Alan Colmes: To provide a bipartisan veneer for the channel’s ideological assumptions and strengthen the contention that they represent not right-wing talking points but universally acknowledged common sense.  She revels in heaping scorn on Fox’s liberal target of the day as much as she revels in self-righteous claptrap about how open-minded she is and how much abuse she takes from all her liberal friends for it.  Her role on that show is as a fig leaf posing as an olive branch.
