Fox Guests Bash the Released British Soldiers While Rupert Murdoch Pays One for an "Exclusive Interview"

Reported by Melanie - April 9, 2007 -

Fox News has given airtime of late to guests who have bashed the British soldiers who were released by Iran last week. One, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, called for the court martial of the two commanders and another, Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis, a "Fox News Military Analyst," called them "cowards" because according to him, they "caved in" too quickly to their Iranian captors.

At the same time, in yet another display of Rupert Murdoch's anything-to-make-a-buck hypocrisy, the British tabloid The Sun, which Murdoch owns, paid one of those "cowards" for a sensational front page story that is splashed across The Sun's front page today.
