fmarksteyn.jpg Wingnut columnist Mark Steyn pulled out his dusty old Conservative handbook on The Factor Thursday night---opened it up to the very worn out chapter titled " Attack the Media," and applied the formula to the AP and the new White House correspondent boogeyman, David Gregory.

Steyn: ...on the central issue of this our time, they're either dupes at best or actually semi treasonous in colluding with the enemy in demoralizing America on the home front.

He played many of the same cards that Ingraham and others have played during this segment---you know---reporters are hiding in the green zone---if there are so many explosions in Iraq then why are the schools still open--NBC is bad. That a boy, Mark! When was the last time you been to Iraq? You've done Limbaugh proud.

Newshounds reports that FOX & Friends jumped on Gregory first thing and figured it would carry over to their other programming. There's more heading David's way for sure.

Update: tbogg has an idea for Mark: Perhaps Fox News would be willing to send Mr. Steyn to Iraq where he could live outside the Green Zone and report on all of the good stuff that is happening there. They could call it 24 Hours..
