Fox News on Portland Bomb Plot: "Can You Imagine the Psychic Damage?"

Posted by Denis C. Theriault on Sat, Nov 27, 2010 at 12:00 PM

Three Saturday morning anchors mix in a splash of righteousness and fear-mongering—they totally play up that it was at a CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING—with rare heaps of praise for the federal authorities who were with Mohamed Mohamud every step of the way.

(Which also means that, maybe, if they hadn't been with him every step of the way, that he wouldn't have thought he was calling a bomb in a van for an "attack" he helped plan. Which is a point worth noting, along with the fact, on the other side, that Mohamud may have found another way to actually get to Pakistan if he weren't wrapped into the government's elaborate ruse.)

Interestingly, unlike after the Christmas Day bomb plot last year, no mention on Fox News about Dear Leader Barack Obama, in their judgments about the feds doing a good job.
