What To Freak Out About And What To Ignore In Govt. Surveillance Of Fox News Reporter

Today, political writers across America are freaking out about the news that the Obama Administration conducted surveillance of Fox news reporter James Rosen, upon suspicion that Rosen was involved in a criminal leak of classified information. Over at Salon, Natasha Lennard breathlessly wrote that, “In the case of Fox News’ chief Washington correspondent James Rosen, [...]

The Pro-Obama FOX News Conspiracy, Umasked

Peregrin Wood is right: he has found the most idiotic anti-Obama facebook page ever. Here’s the latest post from the nonsensical “I Support Removal of the un-Constitutional president NOW – Not in 2012″ page:

You read that right: “it comes as no shock that you have to tow the obama regime line or you [...]

Christine Todd Whitman Goes on TV and Promotes Jon Huntsman a Sixth Time, Violating Americans Elect Bylaws

She’s done it five times before; this is the sixth.

FOX News: France is Brave and Right to Ban people from choosing their own clothes

I’d appreciate your help. In fact checking an Obama conspiracy e-mail making the rounds, I’ve been trying to verify one of its claims:

NOBODY REMEMBERS OBAMA AT COLUMBIA!!!!!!!

Looking for evidence of Obama’s past, Fox News contacted 400 Columbia University students from the period when Obama claims to have been there, but none remembered him.

Credulity over Credibility: Fox News Flubs the Prahlad Jani Story

Yesterday morning, Fox News issued a news story on the Prahlad Jani “miracle”: that apparently the 83 year old man hasn’t eaten a morsel or had a drop to drink since World War II. Fox News reported on a recently concluded episode in which Prahlad Jani was said to be constantly observed by scientists in [...]

Internal Military Documents Refer to Detainee Treatment as Torture

Just so you know.

Now the question is whether faux-patriotic FOX News will call the military a bunch of handwringing liberal pantywaists to protect the asses of the Republican politicians responsible for all this.

Government Use of Torture Was Isolated. 92 Times in Isolation Chambers, That is. What is the ACLU's Problem?

Sure, at first the government said there were no tapes of American agents torturing detainees. After all, as President George W. Bush said unequivocally, “We do not torture.”

Then, sure, after a federal judge ordered the government to disclose the truth, the government said that OK, there were two videotapes of American agents torturing detainees, [...]

Untrue News, If True, Would Be Astounding!

Under a headline of Fairness Doctrine: Not Just for Radio Anymore, Sheldon Townsend writes the following about liberal plans to squelch free speech:

Fox News is reporting that the American Spectator magazine said yesterday that Congressman Henry Waxman (Spendocrat from California) wants to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine and apply it to the web. As Fox [...]
