This morning, I was interviewed on Fox & Friends about the incident where students were asked to "keep quiet" at the Lincoln Memorial. The ruckus they were causing? They decided to sing the National Anthem :
Right on cue, Media Matters for America threw up a blog post criticizing the National Park Police Service Fox News for bringing up the story. Yes, you read that correctly - the bad guys, according to Media Matters, is (of course) Fox News. How predictable.
The liberal outrage doesn't end there. The lesser known News Hounds blog immediately responded as well . (There tag line is, "We watch Fox so you don't have to.") Their response was much more tongue-in-cheek, but it still painted Fox News as the bad guys. (More specifically, Steve Doocy and I were the bad guys.) News Hounds final word on the incident: "Boo, freaking, hoo." A fitting response for such a respected and upstanding blog. (A blog started by MoveOn.org, I might add.)
So two prominent* liberal blogs are applauding efforts to silence high school students from singing the National Anthem. Wow. If Fox News told them not to jump off a bridge, would they jump - just to spite them? Probably.
* - indicates that term is used loosely
