Brit Hume, Hack

BRIT HUME, HACK….The Al Franken blog, based on a report at Media Matters, catches Fox News anchor Brit Hume in a piece of “Dowdification” ? i.e., a deliberate misquotation ? far worse than anything Maureen Dowd herself has ever done. And so craftily done!

I assume the excuse ? assuming the conservative blogosphere can tear itself away from Eason Jordan, Bill Moyers, and Ward Churchill long enough to notice ? will be the usual one: everyone knows Fox anchors are conservative shills. So it’s OK for them to do this kind of stuff.

Blecch.
