They Distort, We Deride

If you don’t crawl the leftie blogs or listen to Air America Radio (why the hell not?), you may have missed this–for some reason, the vitriolic Bush-hating left-wing media cabal has managed to miss it; probably too busy smoking pot at their gay Wiccan weddings or something–but today Fox News reported that Al Qaeda may be responsible for the wildfires blazing across San Diego county.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks; only Roger Ailes can. 😯

Of course, the FBI memo that the “nooz” anchors talk about was released in July 2003, not “late in June of this year”, as Fox and Friends host Steve Doocy mentions in the clip above. (By the way, I just love how he expands and expounds on the lie even as it’s slithering out of his duplicitous headhole: “early–er, late June”. Early June probably didn’t seem prevalent enough for the fruit-fly-sized attention span of the average Fox and Friends viewer.) Fellow newstwinkie Alisyn Camerota adds her own special embroidery to this travapestry by chiming in with, “This actually has happened for many years in the past as well.” No, Alisyn—if that is your real name; it sounds like a brand name for an antidepressant—it happened only in the past. And even then, the FBI was more than a little skeptical, saying that the could not verify the information.

Doocy does find it in himself to mention that the memo did not mention California by name, but instead referred to purported proposed targets in Colorado, Montana, Utah and Wyoming. Um, thanks for including a small morsel of truth with your propaganda. Mighty Fair and Balanced of you.

But you already know which words are going to stick in the minds of Fox News devotees across this great land of ours: “THE FBI reported today that they have absolutely no reason to SUSPECT A CONNECTION between AL QAEDA and THE WILDFIRES IN CALIFORNIA.”

Kind of like, “THE UN WEAPONS INSPECTION TEAM reported today that THERE ARE absolutely, positively no traces of WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION IN IRAQ.”

Are the FBI involved with the situation in California? Yes indeed. Are they there because at least one if not more fires appear to have been set intentionally? Why, yes; yes they are.

Have they instigated a statewide manhunt for a dark-complected man in a full beard wearing a kufi and reeking of thermite? No. They. Have. Not.

Will this vital little bonbon of information find favor upon the–ahem–discriminating palates of the Murdochistas? Pfleh.

In kitchens, dens and living rooms across America, hysterical Security Moms clutch their children to their heaving, gingham-aproned bosoms and shriek, “Won’t someone pleeeze save my babies from the Arso-Islamo Fascists!!”

    Regardless of race, creed, color, gender, age, religion, handicap status, sexual bent, or whatever, it is still likely that the fires were intentionally set. It is unlikely that Malibu to Mexico lights up on the same day with no other activity before it. I blame smokers who still believe the world is their ashtray.

    I’ll side with that. I’ve commented before about the strange connection between smoking and littering; as if someone who is antisocial enough to be willing to poison everyone sitting near them figures that throwing shit out their window is just their inalienable right or something.
