Fox News asserted that reporters from CNN and elsewhere had gone with Libyan officials as human shields for Muammar Qaddafi at his compound, and their presence forced Western jets to scrub an attack mission there.
What Fox didn’t report was that they’d sent somebody out there, too…just not one of their qualified TV crew members, who were chilling back in the hotel.
This got CNN’s Nic Robertson pissed. “You know, when you come to somewhere like Libya, you expect lies and deceit from the dictatorship here,” he said. “You don’t expect it from the other journalists.” Watch the whole epic Fox-flaming rant here.
So…this is a photo…of a portrait of ex-governor Jeb Bush of Florida…yes, that Jeb Bush. And said portrait includes…a photo of Jeb with family…and a BlackBerry…oh, and four paper cutouts of CNN’s Candy Crowley.
