This week Glenn Beck was ranting about the unfolding government power grab, and how the Obama administration is so secretive. How bad was it? This bad, according to Beck:
it seems every week this network is filing another Freedom of Information [Act] request.
We had to laugh because Beck thinks it's a big deal when a news org files a FOIA request. It's not. It's an utterly ordinary occurrence, as journalist routinely petition the government to release all kinds of information.
I just get the feeling that during the Bush years Fox News didn't bother with FOIA's because Fox News reporters didn't need--didn't want--any additional information from the GOP administration. They were completely satisfied accepting the handouts. But with Obama in the WH, suddenly the Fox News team gets all Woodward-and-Bernstein and files FOIA requests!
I'm sure the news Emmy's are sure to follow.
