Tom Ricks probably won't be back on Faux Noos anytime soon

Ricks very simply points out that the Faux outrage over Bin Ghazi is trumped up and politicized by Fox News, and that Fox is the media wing of the Republican Party. Jon Scott was not amused.

Fox News later said that Ricks “apologized in our offices afterward but doesn’t have the strength of character to do that publicly.” Ricks says that did not happen.

The true outrage ought to be over the way the fate of four Americans is being used by the wingnut right for political points, all the while ignoring the dozens or even hundres of similar incidents that have happened under Republican administrations.

This shouldn't be political.
