Fox News ‘Would Have Loved’ to Show Video of FDR at ‘His Most Helpless’

Fox News ‘Would Have Loved’ to Show Video of FDR at ‘His Most Helpless’ (NewsBusters)

The potshot of the weekend illustrates the visceral disgust in academia toward the Fox News Channel. If Franklin Roosevelt were a candidate or President today, FNC “would have loved” to show video of him “at his most helpless” – such as when he was carried or forced to have others attach and remove his leg braces.

The potshot, on CBS’s Face the Nation, came from historian Geoffrey Ward, writer of PBS’s The Roosevelts: An Intimate History, which began a seven night run on Sunday.
