Worse Than CCTV, continued

Is Fox News worse than China Central Television?  When it comes to the Egyptian protests, CCTV is choosing to simply ignore the issue:  they are not running any footage or stories of the revolution.  Contrast that to Fox News, which is actively cheering for the forces of authoritarianism and repression.  Here is Rachel Maddow taking Fox to task for standing squarely on the wrong side of history, on the wrong side of American ideals, on the wrong side of morality.   
The most confusing thing of all is that, by taking this anti-democracy stance, Fox News is essentially rejecting the Bush administration philosophy towards the mdidle east.  That philosphopy, founded by the neocons, was the reason we invaded Iraq and overthrew Saddam.  Hell, the war itself was called "Operation Iraqi Freedom".  And the march to war in 2003 was supported by Fox News more than any other organization!
