Fox News will host a "Tea Party Zone" on Election Night
Fox News will again host its own tea party.
On November 2, the day of the midterm elections, Fox News' Fox Nation website will open  its "Tea Party Zone" with "live video" and "live chat." In April, News Corp. head Rupert Murdoch said that  Fox News shouldn't be "supporting the Tea Party or any other party." Yet Fox News has not only heavily promoted  the tea party, it's also hosted a "virtual tea party"  and dubbed  the April 15, 2009, tea party rallies as "FNC Tax Day Tea Parties." Fox News figures are also  regular fixtures at tea party rallies.
Would a real news network host its own tea party? No. But Fox News has long disregarded any pretense  of objectivity when it comes to the tea parties, with Fox Nation  being one of the network's worst offenders. Lest you think this is merely limited to the "opinion" side of Fox News, purported reporters Bill  Hemmer  and "tea party groupie"  Griff Jenkins  have also been cheerleading for the tea party.
