Replacing CNN With Fox News

By Chris Ariens 

The Jerusalem Post‘s Calev Ben-David says he’s been “watching more of Fox News” since Israeli cable system HOT dropped CNN International and replaced it with FNC earlier this month.

Unfortunately, Fox is no substitute for CNN, not by a long shot.

Fox is actually not an international news channel at all, but an on-air version of an American tabloid — the broadcast equivalent of Rupert Murdoch’s racy, breathless, editorially right-wing paper, The New York Post, where coverage of the latest missing-attractive-white-woman-in-peril case gets more air time than the crisis in Pakistan.
