This is a first for me. I’ve had many instances when friends have been lauded in the mainstream media for accomplishments but not criticized in such a vicious way–it has happened to acquaintances of mine but never friends.
Well, Nancy Kricorian is a friend of mine and it makes me furious that Fox News used her quote about Sarah Palin (and the fact that she makes her angry) in the New York Sun as a way to attack Obama…really really low (and desperate).
The Fox video clip is here on the Jezebel site–the blogger of Jezebel was also attacked in the pseudo-news segment.
The really sick thing is that Nancy is now getting awful hate mail that is attacking her personally (wishing rape on her, etc.) and all for a statement she made about a public politician.
I don’t know about you but it sounds like the culture wars are either in their last throes or flaring up.
