This whole conservative outrage at the NY Times (which has been orchestrated by the White House ) is making them say some incredibly stupid things. Take E.D. Hill on Fox & Friends for example.
During yesterday morning's FOX & Friends Edith Ann "E.D." Hill threatened to reveal secret information about Bill Keller, editor of the New York Times.
E. D. HILL: Since Bill Keller is in the news now, wouldn't you consider him a newsworthy figure? Because I've heard some very interesting things about Bill Keller.
BRIAN KILMEADE: Like what?
HILL: They're secret!
STEVE DOOCY laughs.
HILL: But, you know what? Since Bill Keller is in the news, I think that the person ...
KILMEADE: Oh, good one!
HILL: ... who had someone uncover those secrets would be doing a public service, perhaps, by releasing them.
DOOCY: Was it Jayson Blair, who uncovered it?
HILL: No, it was not.
Media Matters has compiled a list of some of that really good WATB conservative outrage. They are really good at it. Crawford List says this is all good for Republicans and the ballot box: Swift-Boating The Media
