Great Moment on Fascists and Friends This Morning


A brief note about one of those very awkward Faux News moments… This morning, the crack investigative staff on Fox and Friends was interviewing a former CIA agent about the terrorism investigation in England. Clearly, this guest was a sympathetic guest whose views on politics seemed well-known.

Assuming that he would follow the party line, one of the Fauxcasters asked a leading question about the Valerie Plame case–suggesting that she wasn’t really covert. The guest, rightly, suggested that it was a very dangerous precedent to be in the position of outing any former/current CIA operatives. Stunned silence followed.

It’s kind of exciting, actually. Like watching water boil, one almost never gets to actually see a moment of truth on Faux. I’m speechless.
