Ruh-Roh! Busted Iranian Terror Plot Foils (For Now) Fox News Witch Hunt Against Eric Holder

Reported by Ellen - October 11, 2011 -

In case you missed it, the Justice Department just announced it has foiled an Iranian plot to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the United States and bomb the Saudi embassy in Washington, D.C. Given Fox News' burning hatred for Iran and the network's fever for aggression against Iran, you'd think the "fair and balanced" folks would be focused like a laser beam on this news. Not so fast (or furious)!

Yeah, they've been discussing it - though I heard Judge Andrew Napolitano mention on Studio B and Your World today the curious timing, suggesting it was a deliberate attempt to bump subpoenas against the DOJ in the "fast and furious" scandal off the front page (Eric Bolling just said the same thing on The Five). But a quick scan of FoxNews.com, Fox Nation and FoxNews.com's video page shows that Fox will do everything it can to keep this as merely a temporary setback in its witch hunt against Eric Holder.

FoxNews.com's front page has the murder plot as the top news right now (followed by Fast and Furious subpoenas). The top video is about Holder and Fast and Furious. Fox Nation's top story at this moment is Chris Christie's endorsement of Mitt Romney, followed by expected "fast and furious" subpoenas. You have to scroll almost halfway down the page to find the Iranian plot.

Good to know where the Fox News priorities are.
