These people just don't get it. When we say that they live in their little world somewhere between the corridors of Washington, D.C., and New York City, it's true.... When they see the real world, they see it through the lens of those right-wing zealots up to no good on Fox television. </p></blockquote><p>&quot;Fox &amp; Friends&quot; co-host Gretchen Carlson asked Bozell how the Times, which most certainly monitors cable news networks for breaking news, &quot;how could they not be aware of those undercover videos?&quot; Bozell answered:</p><blockquote><!--break--><p>It's telling you their worldview. No, I don't believe they were aware of it. It's not part of their world. Their world is so insulated. This is why we call them elites. These are the liberal elites.... Ask them about the real world, they haven't a clue.</p></blockquote>
