The Day After Indictments On FOX

Reported by Deborah - October 29, 2005

Fox began a well orchestrated damage control strategy today on the day after indictments were handed up in the CIA Leak Investigation. Blame has been shifted from Libby to the CIA, the long term damage to the White House has been minimized and attention has been diverted to news of a terrorist attack in India. 10/29/05

The question asked of Catherine Herridge, at least twice, was "Did bad blood between the White House and the CIA fuel the leak?" Herridge reported that Libby had complained that the CIA was very critical of the Vice President and he accused the agency of leaking information.

David Corn and Michael Barone debated and Barone said that it was unlikely that Rove would be indicted and this was not a major negative for the President especially when the Iraqi Constition takes hold. His attitude was casual and dismissive which seemed to be the order of the day.

Attention was diverted throughout the afternoon with constant Fox News Alerts about the bombings in India which were blamed on terrorists. However, the terrorists suspected by India were motivated by the talks scheduled between India and Pakistan. Mansour Ijaz, Fox Contributor, claimed that the attacks were similar to Madrid and London and were definitly Al Qaeda style and motivated by India siding with the U.S. against Iran. Fox did not mention the talks between India and Pakistan motivating the attacks.

comment: This is just the beginning. Remember Rove is still on the job.
