FOX War: Shades of Richard Nixon

President Obama has yet to decide on deploying more troops to fight the Taliban, but his administration is resolved to defeat at least one pressing security threat: FOX News...Fox and Foes, Jacob Laksin,, 10/23/2009

Those intent on comparing the current administration in Washington to that of LBJ or FDR might want to think again. Was it not the Left's Great Bogeyman Richard Nixon who went after the NY Times, CBS News, and a whole list of enemies in the early 1970s?

In a slightly different interpretation of remarks by the late Winston Churchill on foxhunting, this administration in its FOX hunt looks like the pursuit of the inedible by the unspeakable.
