John Collins: Time for speech radio to be allowed to express a political opinion

FOX News did something I really admired, the other day.

President Obama had just finished a really powerful speech at a service to remember those affected by the Boston Marathon bombs. He was close to flawless, speaking from notes and without a prompter.

Normally, Fox would cut to a panel of political opponents and work though his comments line by line, putting forward their point of view.

This time they couldn’t, as most Americans were still in a state of shock.
