Open Thread

According to this story (via Politico) Fox News is more suspicious of RW propaganda than the Dems or the MSM. If true, that would be definitely sad.

Clemente noted that, although FoxNews.com did put out a story before Sherrod's resignation was announced, it was published after she actually resigned, since it has been widely reported that she was pressured to get her resignation in before Glenn Beck's 5 p.m. show on Fox.

But more broadly, Clemente said he has been around the block enough times to recognize the telltale signs of a fishy story, which was why he issued the note of caution to his staff.

"I've been doing this since 1978, when I started at ABC, so I've seen what has happened," he said. "Mistakes were made. After a few years, you start to get a bit of a gut feeling about was this a portion of a story, or is this the whole story?"

Why that didn't happen on the website on the Sherrod story "will be addressed internally," he said.

So when does Breitbart get labeled as a total hack by everyone, including the politicos at the White House?
