Take a memo

The cynical may enjoy being proven right by thirty-odd Fox News memos. It is blatantly clear that Fox News thinks of itself as the conservative defender of truth against the marauding liberal news media.

We have good perp walk video of Eric Rudolph which we should use. We should NOT assume that anyone who supported or helped Eric Rudolph is a racist. No one’s in favor of murder or bombing of public places. But feelings in North Carolina may just be more complicated than the NY Times can conceive.

There’s a not really that subtle difference between saying that Rudolph’s supporters had complex motivations and saying that they made a mistake. One excuses supporting a terrorist, and one does not. Consider this statement: “No one’s in favor of murder or bombing of public places. But feelings in Palestine may just be more complicated than Fox News can conceive.” Somehow I can’t imagine Fox News taking that tack.

  1. I wrote yesterday about the documentary Outfoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s War on Journalism. It seems the maker of the film, Robert Greenwald, released several fox memos that he aqquired. Ana Marie Cox (bless her cyberbabe soul) posted the memos on Wonkette…

    Complicated feelings? In Red State North Carolina? So nuanced, so relativistic, so metrosexual! Whatever happened to Good vs. Evil?

    let’s rock n roll with the korean train explosion. korean websites are speculating freely that it was a mistimed hit on kim. that gives us the right to quote them, and let guests etc speculate.

    what sick fucks. let’s see that again:

    What’s the difference between Rudolph and and AlQaida operative? I don’t see a difference; do you see a difference?

    No, really, they are both religious crackpots bent on killing innocents to further their “cause”. Why is it that the media treats these Christianists with kid gloves?

    The American Taliban is just as dangerous as the Afghani one. Wake up America!
