Fox's Big Story misses the Big Stories - again

Reported by Chrish - June 11, 2005

Today 6/10/05 on The Big Story Judge Andrew Napolitano had the bad fortune to sit in for John Gibson and host another hour of small and medium stories. The Big ones are untouchable on Fox News.

Somehow "The So-Called Big Story" did not report on the continuing concern over the Downing Street Memo, where the American president has been caught with his figurative pants down. Apparently the puerile folks at Fox only care about literal pants on the prez. Had they seen fit to mention the DSM, they would have alerted their so-called patriotic viewers to upcoming hearings on Memogate next Thursday, June 16.

How did they miss the stunning news that the House Judiciary Chair, James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) had a hissy and shut down discussion of abuses of the so-called USA Patriot Act this afternoon, cutting off John Zogby in the midst of his testimony? This is huge news to democracy- and freedom-loving Americans, when debate and discussion is arbitrarily silenced at the whim of one official.

The fascists are coming? Hell, they're here.
