Weekend Watchdog Wrap-Up

Bill Scher

Fox News Sunday had a landmark Watchdog day, not only asking this week’s question about Huckabee’s past ethical violations, but also asking last month’s Watchdog question about Huckabee’s deeply flawed proposal to replace the income tax with a national sales tax.

Huckabee’s answers were laughable, saying that his five state Ethics Commission sanctions simply meant that: “I’m prepared for the rigors of a presidential campaign, in that I’ve been through this stuff.”

And despite all the factual analyses finding that his tax plan could not generate enough revenue without a ridiculously high rate, Huckabee insisted that a 23% national sales tax would bring in the same amount of revenue.

Why did Fox go all Watchdog on Huckabee?
