Last Spring, New York magazine and other magazines wrote that Purple Politics was a new political trend view.
Instead of media's focus on extreme political splits of left vs right, liberal vs conservative, democrat vs republican...Americans were really more of a "blue" and "red" blending.
A centrist "Purple" nation.
The 2006 mid-term elections results supports this thinking; Congress is far less red and much more "purple" now.
Looks like Fox Noise noticed and read the memo: Time to blend the red and blue to be more purple!
First a Fox News Channel threat down against Comedy Central's The Daily Show and Colbert Report called The 1/2 Hour News Hour (which some think is 30 minutes too long). Waitaminute...fake news on Fox News?
Now this: Hannity & Colmes debuted a new look that would make Prince proud, broadcasting their dueling neoconservative Republican and moderately Democratic viewpoints from a brand-new purple set.
How fashionable! Is it an extreme makeover? Well, no. The look has changed...but the FNC's noise content remains the same. Hey, we can report, too...and let you decide.
