When I read Benson's bit, I thought that he must've been making this up. He wasn't.
In 2008, former Air America host, Al Franken was elected the next Senator from Minnesota.
In 2008, no Fox News host or anchor became a United States Senator.
Of course, we must ignore the pesky fact that Al Franken has not yet been elected -- there's a lot of hanky-panky and a pending lawsuit still to be decided.
Also, amazingly no Fox News anchor or host ran for Senate either.
This is "media analysis"? I thought the left is often wrong and misguided ... but the level of stupidity displayed by Cenk Uygur astounds. I predict a bright future for him at The New York Times.
Read all of Benson's take-down of this inanity if you're in need of a laugh.
