FoxNews Begins Tea Party – Libertarian Show on Fox Business Network

Freedom Watch was launched on Fox Business Network on Saturday at 10:00 AM. Judge Andrew Napolitano is the host of this Libertarian leaning show featuring numerous guests. This week, Sarah Palin and Ron Paul helped launch the show.


The fact that the New York Times noticed and wrote an article is proof that the show has the liberals all aflutter.

From the NY Times:

The first TV episode was billed as a “Tea Party summit,” with appearances by the Fox pundit Sarah Palin; Representative Ron Paul, Republican of Texas; and his son Rand Paul, a Republican and candidate in Kentucky for the United States Senate. (The elder Mr. Paul endorsed and wrote a forward for Mr. Napolitano’s most recent book.)

Also on the show were three Tea Party favorites, Senator Jim DeMint of South Carolina, Representative Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and the former House majority leader Dick Armey of Texas, Republicans all, or “freedom fighters,” as the host called them. The lone Democratic guest was Gov. Edward G. Rendell of Pennsylvania.

And one critic of the FoxNews network as well as the show is Liberal commentator Bill Press. According to a Mediaite interview:

others like liberal commentator Bill Press say its a pure ratings move, and that Fox “just decided to make it the second propaganda channel.” As a response, A Fox Business spokesperson tells Mediaite, “If anyone is familiar with being a ratings killer it’s Bill Press who hasn’t been able to maintain a steady hosting job on television since being dumped by CNN in 2002 and having his show canceled by MSNBC in 2003.”

So, set the DVR, tune in live, or search the listings for the replay times and live show times.

    Libertarians are Libertarians and Tea Party is Republican, I assume this is an attempt to discredit Libertarians as a serious alternative to Democrats and Republicans

    Hey, Allen.

    Not sure where you are from, but in most places, the Tea Party crowd tends to lean more towards the Libertarian side than Republican. Although, there are many Libertarian leaning Republicans.

    In most Tea Party circles, Republicans are a dirty word.

    At the Tax Day Tea Party this year, Virginia’s Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli, showed up at the rally hoping to address the crowd. Since he is a Republican and a politician, he was denied.

    Buy mostly, the Tea Party shuns party affiliation.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
