Fox News: Guess

Wonkette has a series of 30 memos by Fox news chief John Moody released by the producers of Outfoxed, a documentary piecing together Fox News footage and memos. It was a completely guerrilla project - being sold over the internet, direct to video, to avoid being prosecuted by Fox. Quite frankly, it seems that the makers of the film probably went way past fair use in their extensive taping and un-authorized rebroadcast of Fox News clips - not to mention how in the hell they might've gotten those memos - but quite frankly, I don't give a damn.

Oh, right: and those memos are riDICulous. A sample:

Heads of state don't leave G-8 meetings early unless they have good reasons. President Bush has two: he has to get to Egypt, and he doesn't like the French.

We have good perp walk video of Eric Rudolph which we should use. We should NOT assume that anyone who supported or helped Eric Rudolph is a racist. No one's in favor of murder or bombing of public places. But feelings in North Carolina may just be more complicated than the NY Times can conceive. Two style notes: Rudolph is charged with bombing an abortion clinic, not a "health clinic." and

We have FCC Chairman Michael Powell on Cavuto today (hosted by Brenda). Let's do a few hits on the commission's vote about media ownership rules.
Look, being nakedly partisan regarding political issues, and lying about it, is one thing - but in this guy's clarification, "an abortion clinic, not a "health clinic."" he is saying that it's okay to kill people if you disagree with them. Um...um...yeah. Why does Fox News hate America?
