The Huckabee Show

I have to admit that this bothers me just a little…

KDFW is our local FOX affiliate, the same station that brings us “The Simpsons” and “Family Guy.” It is public broadcast television. It does not require a cable or satellite subscription.

KDFW, beginning next Monday, will be airing “The Huckabee Show” from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

It just seems to me that political talk shows, particularly extreme right wing political talk shows, should be restricted to the cable network — you know, FOX News. That’s what it’s there for, right? I mean, what’s next… Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity? All in all, though, I believe I am taking this rather well. Can you imagine how the Republicans would be screaming if KXAS, our local NBC affiliate, starting airing Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow?

A Presidential Press Conference has been scheduled for 7:00 PM Central (8:00 Eastern) tonight. It will be carried live by all the major broadcast networks. Well, almost all the major broadcast networks. Here’s our local TV listing for the 7:00 hour tonight:

KDFW = FOX
KXAS = NBC
WFAA = ABC
KTVT = CBS
KERA = PBS

So you think you can dance?

Once again, the FOX television network is the outlier. Once again, we see how patriotic the folks at the FOX television network really are. If it weren’t for The Simpsons (and maybe Family Guy), would anybody even watch the FOX television network?
