Cavuto Fill-In Brings On Corsi Co-Author To Attack Obama On Job Growth

Fox obviously can't talk about their Uncle Rupert's huge scandal over in the U.K., but -- par for the course -- they're more than happy to spend lots of fact-free segments attacking the Obama administration for the dismal job-creation numbers.

Cavuto's fill-in Chris Cotter brought on gold trader and CEO of Swiss America, Craig Smith, who also co-authored a book with World Net Daily's Jerome Corsi, and wrote a column back in August of 2008 calling Barack Obama "our first hip-hop president." Media Matters has more on that here.

So who better to come on Fox and regurgitate one Republican talking point after another to mislead their viewers on what's really causing the problems with our economy? The debt limit isn't real, the stimulus didn't work, government "needs to get out of the way" of the private sector, Obama said something mean about big business and if he just treated them more nicely it would give them the "confidence" to create more jobs. Yadda yadda yadda.

He also pretended that it would be acceptable to partially default on our debt. And this is what gets repeated all over Fox, day after day, hour after hour. And in the meantime, the kabuki theater game of chicken on raising the debt ceiling continues. There are real substantive issues to talk about with how our economy has been handled and what's really needed to get people back to work. You're not going to hear any of them on Fox.
