production error at fox?

Again Fox News has been accused of using footage of crowds out of context to make a Republican or Teabag event look good. This time, they made it look like former Alaska Governor/current teabagger wet dream Sarah Palin had huge throngs at her book signing. Except the crowds they showed were from the 2008 presidential campaign.

Fox claimed a "production error".

Of course, that's not true. These are intentional moves to puff Fox's favorites. We all know that, right?

fox news projects itself on the obama administration

Back from semi-retirement because of this headline from Faux I mean Fox News: Some Fear Bush Administration Could Become Target in 9/11 Trial.

The "some" that fear this includes Karl Rove. Why does Rove fear it? For two reasons. First, he knows the de facto Bush Administration was incompetent and morally corrupt in its response to 9/11 and in its policy of torturing people. (Eric Holder and company at DOJ must feel they have a very good case against these bastards that won't rely on their own testimony, since that would be badly tainted by the fact that they were tortured.)

And second, if 9/11 had happened on Al Gore's watch and George W. Bush had been elected president in 2008, Rove would have made DAMN sure that a trial of these Al Qaeda criminals would have had Gore and the Democrats as the main target. Rove and Fox News are projecting THEIR tactics upon the Obama Administration.
