Fox News: Tom Ridge? Never Heard of Him.

Since news broke that Ridge admitted terror alerts were political, CNN has mentioned his name on air 41 times; MSNBC has 62 times. Not Fox.

Big surprise, right? Former Department of Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge admits in his upcoming book that he was pressured by very senior Bush White House officials to raise the nation's terror level warning and to do it for purely for political reasons. 

The story's a big deal and it's been widely reported and commented upon in the last 24 hours. Except at GOP-friendly Fox News, of course, which continues to play dumb about the news story.   

According to TVeyes.com, since the terror level story broke yesterday, CNN has mentioned "Tom Ridge" on the air at least 41 times, MSNBC has done it 62 times, and CNN's Headline News, which covers fewer stories each day, mentioned "Tom Ridge" 18 times so far.

Any guesses for Fox News? Did I mention FNC was playing dumb on an epic level?
