Calling All FoxNews Personnel

Mickey Kaus again charges that FoxNews is deliberately refusing to cover the immigration debate as they normally might as a favor to President Bush. And perhaps the Republican Party as a whole, which, Hotline says, is largely pretending to be reluctant about the amnesty bill while privately reassuring corporate lobbyists (who want the bill) that they hope it will pass.

I have to admit: Given it's such a big issue, FoxNews has been relatively quiet about this, hasn't it? Whichever way they choose to play it, it's a hot, emotional, ratings-grabbing subject, a natural for FoxNews' primetime shouting shows, and yet... kind of anemic coverage, yes-yes?

Kaus also points to the FoxNews website -- which very nearly doesn't even mention the debate at all. (And the mention itself is buried and small.)

So, what about it? What have you been told? Surely some FoxNews people read this site; let me know if the word has come down to cool the heat on this issue. Of course confidentiality is guaranteed.

Seriously, not-for-attribution and all that.

Cavuto... is was covering it (I'm behind on the DVR), featuring a woman cutting up her Republican voter card on camera.

On the other hand, he's got someone who is plainly a lunatic wearing an INS hat and threatening a new civil war over this.

Sometimes the best way to support a position is not to have an advocate on, but rather an opponent who alienates those wo might be inclined to opponent.

Now Michelle Malkin's on, though, trashing the bill. And (I forgot) Malkin guest-hosted O'Reilly a couple times earlier this week.

I'm thinking the Kaus theory isn't true.

This Just In: Peggy Noonan is a Milf.
