On Saturday evening, Commerce Secretary John Bryson was involved in an incident where he hit two cars in quick succession. ABC News reports that he was initially suspected of a hit and run, before medical professionals confirmed that he had a seizure. Think Progress notes in their report that this is his second major seizure incident in four years - the first one being when he collapsed at a meeting in 2008. However, American Crossroads, the brainchild of Fox News contributor Karl Rove, thought that it would be cute to post on Twitter that he was driving drunk. To make it even worse, a spokesman for the group explained to TPM that was it was posted as a joke. Yeah, that's so funny I could throw up.
Meanwhile, despite the news about Bryson’s seizure, FoxNews.com is still milking the story. A video from America’s Newsroom is currently the top featured video on FoxNews.com. Its headline blares, “US Commerce secreary cited in hit-and-run: Obama Cabinet member John Bryson cited for felony hit-and-run following two car crashes.”
Just because Rove’s that valuable to what they’re doing.
