Breakfast Scramble (Thursday)

Fox News, reports, George Soros whines, from Ben Dimiero, Media Spatters: [1]

FOXLEAKS: Fox boss ordered staff to cast doubt on climate science

In the midst of global climate change talks last December, a top Fox News official sent an email questioning the “veracity of climate change data” and ordering the network’s journalists to “refrain from asserting that the planet has warmed (or cooled) in any given period without IMMEDIATELY pointing out that such theories are based upon data that critics have called into question.”

Apparently Sorss can not figure out, or accept, that Fox News refuses to take left wing talking points as if  they were fact.    Even Soros uses the new euphemism climate change, rather than global warming, because the weather alarmist can neither explain how the weather is changing nor predict future climate. Yet somehow skepticism is asserted be some kind of thought crime.  Go figure.

Memo to Bill Sammon: There’s Somebody at Fox News Who Is Out to Get You

You may have figured that out with the earlier leak of your health-care memo, and now with the leak of your climate-change memo, you know that first leak wasn’t an anomaly.

If you need some advice on how to deal with this kind of stuff, just give me a holler. I think I know exactly what you need.

Or rather, who you need.

It does seem like somebody is out to get Sammon, but so for all they have accomplished to to burnish Sammon’s credentials.

Local Hero, from 13 WHAM [4]:

Rochester, N.Y. – A Geneseo man who stopped to help a stranded driver on 390 in Livingston County on Wednesday during the snowy weather has died of his injuries.

Ken Parfitt, father of 8, had stopped on Tuesday morning on the northbound side of 390 near exit 10 to check on people involved in an accident.

Rest in Peace, Mr Perfit.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Think, more screwed up thinking from homophiles,from Politico [5]:

Gay advocacy groups are calling for the commandant of the Marine Corps to resign after he expressed concern that repealing “don’t ask, don’t tell” could cost Marine lives.

“General Amos needs to fall in line and salute or resign now,” the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, an advocacy group, said in a statement Tuesday.

Commandant Gen. Jim Amos told reporters Tuesday that he was concerned that allowing gay or lesbian service members to serve openly could disrupt combat operations and have fatal consequences.

How many Marines must die to support a dubious social agenda?    These so-called advocacy groups could not care less.
