What Fox News does here is what every news person and reporter should be doing everywhere. I do it here all the time out of habit. I'd gotten fed up interviewing Republicans, who would fill one sentence with a number of lies before making their point, making it impossible for me to go back and correct them without getting off topic. It's a ploy.
By the way, this might be the only time I say anything nice about Faux News (never say never).
