My very own Foley conspiracy theory

News & Politics

What the hell is going on here? I can't say it was terribly shocking to see Fox's Bill O'Reilly repeatedly mislabel Mark Foley as a Democrat... three times. Wishful thinking can be a powerful motivator.

Then AP mislabeled Foley that very same day. Curious... verrrrrry curious. But okay. Coincidences. Laziness. Cribbing from other sources. Maybe. Holding out hope...

Now I've had it.

In one of my right wing buffoon-site emails -- Newsmax, to be exact -- was this, familiar, error:

But hey, it could just be that the two sites are close pals and share information, right? Or maybe that's the problem...


And just so you're not behind on the very latest. Here's what's up:

Eric Boehlert talks about why the Miami Herald, which knew about the Foley story months ago, sat on one of the biggest stories in Florida history, HERE.

Ken Silverstein, a Harper's writer approached with the story months ago, debunks the B.S. about the Foley scandal being a Democratic "October Surprise," HERE.
