in the past that conservatives are no fans of PBS. But perhaps we spoke too soon.
FOX took to praising
the immensely popular PBS drama Downton Abbey
this morning for its alleged threat to the left. Threat how? Through its portrayal of rich people who treat their servants - a proxy for "employees
" in the modern era, one supposes - as if they actually care about them. As the hosts of Fox & Friends
see it, Downton
risks sending the message to liberals that rich people can be pretty damned decent.
But Kelly Conaboy at Videogum issues
a mild challenge to this interpretation of the show, utilizing FOX's own Gretchen Carlson to do so.
"Legit props to Gretchen Carlson for pointing out that maybe people just like
a show...Well played, Gretch, you old pro."
