    There is no bottom to the MSM. Really, none. Yes the following is Michelle Malkin, but it's echoed throughout the blogosphere, and now FOX is joining in:

    Here's how the chart works:
    Current News Priorities (least to greatest)

    Waterskiing Squirrel < Iraq War < High Oil Prices < Kidnapped Journalist < Israel-Lebanon War

    However, all of these are blown out of the water by "Possible Suspect in 10 Year Old Murder Case Found"

    Really, compared to Jon Benat, these guys didn't have a chance.

    You may have a valid point. I thought at the time, the story was hot because of video and parents. Now, moreso. Either the guy did it, in which case DNA will make him toast; or he is a 10 minute guy, that has bought into 24/7, rightly.

    When a reporter from the liberal media is wounded or killed it is nonstop coverage.

    Now when a Fox News reporter is involved there is silence form the liberal media

    Maybe it's because what Michelle Malkin said isn't true. It's been all over CNN and they keep playing the appeal made by the wife of the reporter from NZ.

    Not surprised that Malkin's lying once again, though.

    I read on Drudge last week that the head of Fox was asking his reporters not to discuss this on air,in hopes of negotiating a release.

    I will agree with Mr. Conley that this and no story has a chance,being that the media has gone crazy again with the JonBenet story....Chandra Levy/Gary Condit style. It took 9-11 to stop that frenzy.

    I was thinking all along that the story was purposely not getting air time because the Fox network wanted to keep it lowkey so as not to embolden the captors while negotiations were being conducted? Maybe I was over thinking this?:dunno:

    You guys are ridiculous. First of all, I know I hear something about this story on CNNi at least every day. Second of all, it has nothing to do with Fox news versus any other news organization. The two kidnappees have previously worked for numerous news organizations including CNN, Reuters and AP, not just Fox. And third, even when they do report on this story all they can say is that the two guys are missing. There haven't been any other developments. I don't even remember hearing that any group or organization has even taken responsibility for the kidnappings yet. What I really think is that with you guys it's lose, lose for the press no matter what they do. You've all got this twisted idea that there's a worldwide, liberal media conspiracy and nothing's going to change your minds--not even the fact that even the idea of a conspiracy, even a semblance of one, is completely ludicrous and has no basis in reality. :usa:

    You forgot the most over-reported story of the decade: Natalee Holloway
