We are very disappointed with FoxNews. We normally, and still, consider that venue to be a worthy source of news. But this is one of those times where “fair and balanced” is clearly not shining through.
We told you back on November 18th that we were taking a new look at Al Franken, given the hearing he had regarding Jamie Leigh Jones’ effort to have her day in court. The crimes committed against her make anything Carrie Prejean had to deal with look trivial by comparison. They make anything the 13 year old girl raped by Polanski, bad as that was, pale by comparison.
FoxNews makes a big deal of these two – and rightly so.
They are AWOL when it comes to the plight of Jamie Leigh Jones. We found this article at the Spokane Examiner, and we can’t agree more. (We believe those commenting below the article are largely misguided, and they should read our our November 18th post.) We want to see conservatives and anyone who plays fair get behind Ms. Jones and others similarly situated. The idea that a United States citizen can, while under a government contractor’s employ be raped, gang raped, and disfigured by that contractor’s employees and not have recourse to Federal courts is an outrage.
Come on FoxNews. Get your heads out of your collective buttocks and come to this woman’s aid. Or is your dislike of Al Franken more important than the possibility that Ms. Jones will finally find the justice she seeks and deserves? Are you fair and balanced, or are you something disappointingly less than that?
