Fox Panel Paints Food Stamp Recipients As Nanny State And Crack Cocaine Addicts


I'm not sure who watches these Saturday morning "business" shows on Fox besides those of us that monitor the media on a regular basis, but I've got to wonder just who the producers of Fox's horrid Cashin' In think they're appealing to with segments like this?

When we were in good economic times, I can see a show getting away with demonizing those in need of food stamps as they did here, but these days where there are so many people out of work, I can't imagine them having too many viewers left who do not either know someone in need of these services or in need of assistance themselves. It really would be nice to see this show among others go away like Beck's show because they're just as awful.
