Five minutes with Fox

Bolling up to his usual scare tactics on Fox

Once in a while, I like to take the fair and balanced challenge. This simply involves switching over to Fox News for a few minutes to see if what they're dishing out is actually living up to their slogan. Today, at about 5 minutes before 10am, I decided to give it another shot.

After the commercial break, Fox wasted no time in sounding the alarm bells with Eric Bolling proclaiming that the social security disability program will probably run dry in about 4 years. As usual, he gave little details, preferring to resort mostly to speculation. As it turned out, it wasn't much of a story in itself but more of a plug for Bolling's own show on Fox Business channel. The viewer was urged to tune in to Bolling's show at 10pm Eastern for the whole story. I don't know if I'll watch, but something tells me Bolling will find a way to blame Obama for the apparent pending failure of social security disability.
