Who is Winning the Fox News Primary?

Walter Shapiro wondered how Fox News was deploying its "unprecedented powers" in its coverage of the 2012 Republican presidential race.

"It was a self-inflicted, eye-glazing marathon -- 50 hours in late August spent watching a full sampling of the Fox News lineup. Looking back, it seems like a nine-day hallucination of strident voices, blonde hair, and more pitchmen hawking gold coins than at any time since the heyday of King Midas."

But it was late-night Fox host Greg Gutfeld who best summarized the candidate who was winning over the network: "Mitt Romney is like somebody you hook up with periodically until you get serious and you want to meet somebody serious. He [is] friends with benefits. And Perry is marriage material."
