Fox News Wasn’t On Air When “Million Man March” Happened

Neil Cavuto has been bristling at the notion that their 24/7 teabagger coverage is in excess of what Fox would devote to any mass demonstration, like they did the Million Man March:

We are are going to be in the middle of these protests because at Fox, we do not pick and choose these rallies and protests. We were there for the Million Man March, even though, as I pointed out, it turned out to be well shy of a million men.  We were there for the Iraq war protest, and the protest against the Iraq war protest.  So you see, we really don’t decide what populist causes matter —  just that when a whole lot of people gather in a while lot of towns and cities across America, it is indeed worth checking out not just shutting down.

Nice shots of the original "Million Man March" there.  Which happened in October of 1995.

Fox News went on the air in October of 1996.

I’m thinking someone in Dick Armey’s Freedom Works oppo department is getting their ass kicked right about now.
