To further cement Faux as the defacto mouthpiece for the Republican Party, it appears they have moved from just filtering stories to focus on the NeoCon actions to actually telling candidates how to act in the media.

Even Fred Thompson doubts he'll be president

Even Fred Thompson doesn't think he will become president. Chatting off-air to a television reporter, a stunningly candid off-the-cuff quip from the Hollywood actor cemented the impression that his heart is not in the 2008 race.
Trying to encourage his studio to hurry up so an interview could start, Carl Cameron of Fox News said into his microphone: "The next president of the United States has a schedule to keep." Standing beside him, a deadpan Mr Thompson interjected: "And so do I."
As some Thompson aides looked bemused and others cringed, a taken-aback Mr Cameron, Fox's chief political correspondent, exclaimed: "You can't do that kind of stuff!"
The self-deprecating quip said much about the former Tennessee senator's candidacy.

Now Thompson's remark was funny, good for a laugh but the "chief political correspondent" for Fox should have ask something along the lines of "Why do you not think you will be the next President?" That is what "chief political correspondents" do. Weepublican PR
Guys tell a candidate that "he can't do that kind of stuff."
