Yogi Berra and the "Scholars" for 9/11 "Truth"
The great philosopher Yogi Berra once famously said, referring to a restaurant, "No one goes there nowadays, it's too crowded." In the spirit of this logic Uncle Fetzer, in another one of his his bizarre self-quoting press releases is complaining that Fox News is trying to silence his organization, by having their members on their network all the time and criticizing them:
Has the Fox television broadcasting network become an attack dog to silence critics of the Bush administration? A group of American citizens called Scholars for 9/11 Truth says yes. They charge that commentators on the Fox network, already known for its conservative bias, have maliciously compared the 9/11 scholars to terrorists and suggested that the FBI follow their members 24 hours a day, thereby contradicting the network's motto of being "fair and balanced".
"The Fox News Network has gone to war with Scholars for 9/11 Truth," founder and co-chair James Fetzer said. "FOX has used 'The O'Reilly Factor' and 'Hannity & Colmes' as attack dogs against 9/11 truth-seekers. These broadcasters charge that we have supplied 'material support' for terrorists, which paves the way for us to be classified as 'enemy combatants.' That means that our members can be arrested and held indefinitely with no charges simply for questioning the government. That smacks of unAmericanism."
OK Jim, if they are trying to shut you up, why exactly are they putting you guys on the air all the time? They have had "Scholars" on at least a half dozen times. They haven't had me on a single time! How many times has CNN or MSNBC had you on the air? What about PBS, CBS, NBC, or ABC? It seems to me like Fox News is the last news network you should be criticizing.
