Fox Dances for its Master

Ok. Fully expected Fox and Friends to defend their master and owner Rupert Murdoch, or "Mister Murdoch" as obedient drone Steve Docy obsequiously refers to him on this not-very-hard-hitting segment. Of course Rupert did "all the right things" He signs the checks. Also, fully expected Fox to tell us it was "time to move on" because there are so many more important things happening in the world. Yes, yes, please look away from the disaster that is consuming our parent corporation. The network that subjected us to endless birth certificate reporting now wishes for us to believe that a story about their own company spying on prime ministers, dead children and 9/11 victims is not worth your attention. So far, so predictable.

But what I did not expect was to see Fox attempt to blur the line between victim and criminal. Catch this:

Dilenschneider: Citigroup, great bank. Bank of America, great bank. Are they getting the same kind of attention for hacking that took place less than a year ago that News Corp is getting today?

As Wonkette screamed: Yes, why ARE victims and criminals subjected to a different level of media scrutiny sometimes? That is very unfair!
