Fox & Friends: The GOP's first stop on its victory train


Since the midterm elections, Fox & Friends has served as a revolving door of sorts for victorious Republican candidates, as well as their favorite Republican guests. Since Wednesday morning, Fox has hosted the following conservatives to do a nationwide victory lap around the curvy couch:

Dana Perino

Eric Cantor (R-VA)

Karl Rove

Mike Huckabee

Nikki Haley (R-SC)

Michael Steele

Lt. Col. Allen West (R-FL)

Gov. Haley Barbour (R-AL)

Rand Paul (R-KY)

Chip Cravaack (R-MN)

Tim Pawlenty (R-MN)

Rick Perry (R-TX)

Tim Scott (R-SC)

Pat Toomey (R-PA)

But, hey! To be fair, today they also hosted Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO), you know, for balance.

This certainly isn't surprising. As Media Matters has repeatedly shown, Fox functioned as the communications arm of the Republican Party throughout the midterms. And, now, it's poised to play a key role in the GOP's 2012 presidential primaries, as the network employs numerous potential candidates. At this point, Fox really ought to consider renaming its network GOPTV.
