While most of the world’s media was busy with the revelation of the horrors wreaked by the CIA in the name of the United States, along with the details of brutal torture, fatal neglect, and other medieval malfeasance, Fox “News” was zeroing in on the issues that really mattered, with that laser-like focus that they’re known for.
Fox didn’t even bother making the Senate’s report on the CIA torture a top story. No, while the rest of the Liberal Media was chasing after unicorns in their never-ending attempt to besmirch God’s Own Country™, Fox was scrutinizing Obama’s five-year-old stimulus plan.
Rather than those old torture documents, the Fox headline today featured a photo of several horses racing across a dusty field, with the headline, “Proof that Obama’s stimulus plan was spent on a lot of [email protected]#%&?”
That’s right, Fox led with horsesh*t.
The story was courtesy of the Washington Free Beacon, and details the ginormous, bank-breaking sum of $58,650 in stimulus funds that were appropriated to pay for a few jobs, making $16.68 an hour, that hauled off horse manure from a corral in Oregon. The corral was used to hold wild horses and burros found on public land, before they were adopted.
That’s a lot of money to shovel horse manure; maybe Fox was envious, since the network doesn’t pay their interns nearly that much to do the same thing.
As far as the torture report was concerned, it was on there, but it was near the bottom. If you were looking for “torture” or “interrogation,” you wouldn’t find it. Instead, you’d have more luck looking for “Democrats” or “Dems,” since the title they ran with was, “DOUBLE TROUBLE: Dems release CIA report as GOP questions motives.”
Because of course it’s the Dems fault, and GOP is an innocent victim in this game of politics.
That, my friends, is a load of manure involving a different barnyard animal.
