Care to see the sneering face of supercilious liberal condescension? Check out the video clip of John Fogelsang, a Sirius host who appeared on MSNBC this afternoon. He laid out a loony conspiracy theory according to which Fox News wanted to "give" the GOP nomination to Jeb, so that he in turn could lose to Hillary, and Fox could be the "hate Hillary network" for the next four years.
According to Fogelsang, the rise of Donald Trump has upset Fox's plans: "Roger Ailes has a real big problem: how are you going to keep your rubes in your own paddock when they found a new shepherd?" Of course when it comes to keeping people in the paddock, the news network with the biggest problem is MSNBC itself. Fogelsang appeared during the hour formerly occupied by Ed Schultz's failed show, which precedes the hour about to be vacated by Al Sharpton's failed show. But that irony was apparently lost on Fogelsang.
