CLARK-FOX UPDATE….This probably isn’t hugely important, but Justene Adamec emails from the road with an interesting little tidbit about Wesley Clark’s scuffle on Fox News the other day. It turns out that David Asman, the Fox host who did the interview, has a son in Iraq and apparently has a habit of getting a little overwrought on the subject when he’s on the air.
I don’t imagine that having a family member in Iraq should disqualify you from reporting on the subject, but it does shed a little light on why Asman might have made the insinuations that he did.
(Or, you know, maybe the evil genius Roger Ailes arranged the whole thing. Who knows? I report, you decide.)
