New Fox TV game show: Run for President



Media tycoon Rupert Murdoch’s TV empire is launching a game show to transform an unknown into an American political idol who would use the stardom to run for the White House in 2004.


“Leave it to Fox to find a way to further diminish politics and public life in America,” said Thomas Mann, a political analyst at the Washington-based Brookings Institution.


“It’s a sort of antiparty, antisystem, celebrity-based approach that reinforces the worst tendencies of our politics. It’s sad — but not surprising.”
