Disgusting headline of the day

Here it is:

Fox News boss instructed staff not to use phrase 'public option' because it tested too well

Here's how it gets started:

Media Matters has posted a very interesting report that once again illustrates just how laughable the Fox News slogan “Fair and Balanced” really is. It seems the network’s Washington managing editor, Bill Sammon, sent around a memo instructing his staff not to the use the phrase “public option” because it was testing too well.

Instead, Sammon wrote, Fox’s reporters should use “government option” and similar phrases — wording that a top Republican pollster had recommended in order to turn public opinion against the Democrats’ reform efforts.

Can anyone doubt that Fox News is a propaganda network?
