I am hoping that those all fired up against Kevin Jennings have finally cooled their jets, so to speak.
But regardless, the entire sordid situation was character assasination of the highest order.
And a lot of it had to do with Fox News.
Now that the Obama Administration is firing back, the media in general is circling the wagons rather than saying the obvious - that there is a problem with the way Fox News is conducting business.
For those media outlets and any other folks who claim that the Obama Administration is "unfairly targeting Fox News," THIS is the video to show them:
See how it works. Hannity or Beck pushes a "line," and then the so-called "legitimate news media" at Fox continues to push the line, using the same inaccurate verbiage or talking points created by Beck or Hannity.
Or - Hannity or Beck starts a controvery based on distortions/information taken out of context.
The so-called "legitimate news media" on Fox allows the controversy to marinate i.e. via more lies courtesy of Beck and Hannity or the right-wing blogs such as Michelle Malkin's.
And then, people like Chris Wallace or Britt Hume or whoever else introduces the controversy with the phrase "there are new questions about . . ." or "there have been some troubling developments about . . ."
It's like baking a cake full of arsenic.
Well regardless of their lack of ethics, you have to give them points for skill AND audacity.
