NewsBusters joins conservative chorus criticizing Napolitano's truther tendencies
Blog ››› ››› TERRY KREPEL
NewsBusters' Lachlan Markay highlighted Napolitano's appearance on conspiracy-monger Alex Jones' radio show, as well as a segment of Geraldo Rivera's Fox News show, to criticize Fox News for providing them with a "soapbox" to push truther conspiracies:
The physics of the incident (see links above) and moral repugnance of the suggestion that the American government would deliberately slaughter thousands of its own citizens as a pretext for war are generally enough to dissuade thinking Americans from these sorts of theories.
Just so Fox is clear about the people whom they've given soapboxes, Geraldo and the Judge are apparently unconvinced by physics, common sense, and the simple human decency of their elected officials.
Let's hope they don't actually believe this tripe.
That's not the only rumbling on the subject from the conservative Media Research Center, which runs NewsBusters. MRC marketing coordinator Kevin Eder tweeted, linking to Markay's post: "It's always a disappointment to see that someone you generally respect doesn't connect well with reality."
A growing section of Fox News' base viewership is becoming vocal about Napolitano's presence on the network -- something it has been silent about thus far. Will Fox News finally be moved to respond?
