According to AiG, Fox News are sympathetic to YEC's:

We have every reason to believe that the museum (and the creation movement as a whole) will be portrayed in a fair and balanced way. “Miracles,” according to correspondent Lauren Green (who spent several hours at the Creation Museum), takes viewers “from the creation of the world to the healing power of prayer . . . on a search for the truth.”

Looking at the above, I wonder if you could sue them for quackery.

Actually in the photo, they all look Indian to me.  Of course the healer has to wear white.  How else do you know he's the good guy.

FoxNews might bend over for the creationists. But you might be surprised to know that the Republican elite considers the evangelicals and creationists to be idiots. Charles Krauthammer, George Will, etc. Here's Peggy Noonan the other day:

Quote
There was one significant mistake in the speech. I do not know why Romney did not include nonbelievers in his moving portrait of the great American family. We were founded by believing Christians, but soon enough Jeremiah Johnson, and the old proud agnostic mountain men, and the village atheist, and the Brahmin doubter, were there, and they too are part of us, part of this wonderful thing we have. Why did Mr. Romney not do the obvious thing and include them? My guess: It would have been reported, and some idiots would have seen it and been offended that this Romney character likes to laud atheists. And he would have lost the idiot vote.

Creationist Mike Huckabee, referring to said Republican elites:

Quote
They were more than happy for us to come to the rallies and stand in lines for hours to cheer on the candidates, appreciated us putting up the yard signs, going out and putting out the cards on peoples doors and making phone calls to the phone banks and — really appreciated all of our votes. But when they got elected, behind closed doors, they would laugh at us and speak with scorn and derision that we were, as one article I think once said "the easily led." So there's been almost this sort of, it's okay if you guys get a seat on the bus, but don't ever think about telling us where the bus is going to go.
