Even the Foreign Media is Beginning to Get It

From Der Spiegel:

Quote:
Obama's Nice Guy Act Gets Him Nowhere on the World Stage

When he entered office, US President Barack Obama promised to inject US foreign policy with a new tone of respect and diplomacy. His recent trip to Asia, however, showed that it's not working...
Sub section headings in the article include; Lost Some Stature, Relatively Unsuccessful, and 'A Lot Like Jimmy Carter.'

Money line from the last section, "Obama's advisors fear a comparison with former Democratic President Jimmy Carter, even more than with Bush."

The truth rarely has an audience.

So you are saying that Fox must be the truth, since they have a large audience?

The statement was that the truth rarely has an audience. The inverse is that lack of truth commands an audience. Therefore Fox's large audience implies that it is untruthful.
