Fox and Friends and Batboy

FromAlbum3

It’s one thing forFox to get duped by a Weekly World News article, that’s not surprising…what IS frustrating is to realize that if, heaven forbid, the “librul” media got caught in a similar mistake, the noise machine would be incessant. Hell, look at the howling over Dan Rather’s botching of an otherwise accurate report that George W. Bush opted for early retirement from what was already a Champagne Brigade slot. Or, more recently, consider howAlan Grayson is getting slammed for admittedly “creative editing” of a commercial — which doesn’t misrepresent his opponent’s views at all.
If there’s going to be a standard, fine. Hold Grayson accountable, hold Rather accountable. But apply the same standard across the board…and hold the wingers accountable, too.

    You do know he was saying the exact opposite of what the ad says he was saying, right? People seem hung up on the “Taliban Dan” thing, but that’s so totally beside the point.
    Yes, he’s anti-woman where it counts–legislatively– and I’m all for him getting his ass kicked by Grayson, but if you can even think about condoning that ad, I don’t know what to tell ya. Well, I do, but Neitzche’s line about monsters and abysses has been done to death.
