Fox, Henhouse

Fox News is in the news today for two separate but equally dubious things.

First, they put out a memo on Election Night instructing their reporters to look for signs that 'Iraqi insurgents' were celebrating the Democrats' victory in the mid-term elections. The original is posted on the Huffington Post and says:
"And let's be on the lookout for any statements from the Iraqi insurgents, who must be thrilled at the prospect of a Dem-controlled congress."

Not really a surprise to see Karl Rove's inhouse network exposed as UnFair and UnBalanced.

Not only that, Fox News apparently paid $2,000,000 in ransom to "Palestinian terror groups and security organizations in the Gaza Strip" in order to secure the release of a reporter and a cameraman last summer. A leader of Gaza-based Popular Resistance Committees said that they used the money to buy weapons including rockets to use against Israel.

That's Fox News for you. Funding terrorists around the globe, then looking for them to make political statements against the Democratic Party. Oh, the hypocrisy. What next? They'll declare a fake War on Christmas, then get caught selling holiday ornaments? Oh, they already did that.
