Democrats, Gödel, and Fox News

Donkey Rising carries post on Red vs. Blue corporations, the idea being that "The beauty of selective patronage and boycotts is that it is a way that rank and file Dems can get involved in supporting their party on a daily basis and their success does not depend in any way on politicians. Reducing a company's profits by even 1 percent can start stockholders howling for reform."

Here's the problem: One of "Ten Bluest Corporations" in America is . . . News Corp!?!

But wait! How can that be? Rupert Murdoch . . . Roger Ailes . . . Karl Rove . . . Ken Lay . . . Halliburton . . . Bush . . . evil? Right? No, wait, arrgghhhh!

Wouldn't it be fun to have a Daily Kos thread devoted to untangling this Gödel-like incompleteness problem?
