Terrorists and Baby Formula ("Only on Fox")

Reported by Melanie - April 7, 2005

Neil Cavuto, the host of Your World w/Neil Cavuto, has never done a segment say, on Tom DeLay's troubles, but today he had time for a segment titled "Formula for Terror," about "babies and bad guys, a story you'll hear only on Fox."

Jonathan Serrie reported that thieves are stealing powdered baby formula, repackaging and reselling it, and "putting millions of dollars in the hands of criminals." The "shoplifters" sell the formula to "well organized criminals of predominantly Middle Eastern descent, who resell the product to stores, including many that serve families on federal assistance."

Sgt. Johnny Jezierski of the Texas Department of Public Safety said they're "exploiting American businesses by taking the product and then taking advantage of a government program that's designed to support needy children."

Serrie said the FBI is investigating "several baby formula thefts" where "those involved" are suspected of "providing financial support to Middle Eastern terrorist organizations, including Hamas & Hezbollah." According to Serrie, the FBI is "investigating ways" to prevent the thefts and he warned viewers to buy baby formula from a "reputable retailer." He said that "on the black market" you'll pay about half that at a "regular retail store but authorities say its not worth putting your baby or, for that matter, your country at risk."

Comment: Isn't this amazing? There are so many critically important issues facing our country and our planet, yet a story like this rises to the top at Fox News. And since when does Fox care about "families on federal assistance" and "needy children?" After 14 months of monitoring Fox, I think today may have been the first time I've ever heard those words used.
