Fox News and Non-Verbal Body Language
In another segment, a Democratic strategist, Julie Roginsky, is talking with Michelle and a Republican strategist about the Edwards blogger fiasco. The Democratic strategist looks like she is geared up for a fight, her eyes are flashing and she looks ready ready to swing--but she also looks out of her element. She is geared up for a challenge and she must realize to some extent that her slanderous excuses for Edward's poor judgement in hiring bloggers will not hold up--her body language gives her away. "Look, McCain hired an anti-semitic blogger for his campaign," she states. Perhaps Roginsky should check her notes again and see that she made a "mistake." If she didn't feel uncomfortable while in the studio, then maybe she will when bloggers rake her over the coals. The time for getting away with any left-leaning statement as if it were fact is over, and maybe the liberals are just starting to figure that out--and thus the discomfort.
So next time you watch Fox News, take a look at the body language of the liberal guests as compared to the conservative guests. You will often see the liberal display a defensive stance, darting eyes and shifting in their seat. The discomfort could just be fear of being challenged, but my guess is, that deep down, many of these people know that their arguments do not hold water and what they can get away with on regular news segments no longer works on Fox News. It's no wonder liberals hate it so much.
