    I think Fox is as mainstream as anyone else. Usually when people are bitching about the "lame stream" media, they leave Fox out of that.

    So what I mean to say is that any realistic interpretation of the term "mainstream" includes Fox. But a lot of people like to forget that when talking about the "mainstream."

    He accused the Republican party of leaking the emails that had been openly shared with congressional committees and the Republican leadership by the White House. "The Republicans have chosen to politicize this, to leak this information to reporters – information we provided months ago." But he added: "The whole effort here by Republicans to find some hidden mystery comes to nothing."

    Now we have the White House complaining about information being released to the public. What happened to the most transparent admin in history?

    Ok, then I misapplied that to you....I think you are spot on here.

    We're in trouble, folks. We really are.
    Um, Maggie, these sort of discussions happen basically on a daily basis and always have. It's where you get all the news items that come from unidentified white house sources. When it's on the record, you get the person's name and title.

    A ranking official stated that everything in the world is the fault of boogie-men, terrorists, ninjas, witches and Satan. This official was not authorized to release this info and comes from an anonymous source.

    The idea this so-called "off the record" briefing would in any way contain anything we need to worry about is absurd. If the White House wanted to give "marching orders", so to speak, to the press, do you really think they would announce it publicly?

    Just more made up conspiracy nonsense.

    I think there is a relevant point to be made:

    He accused the Republican party of leaking the emails that had been openly shared with congressional committees and the Republican leadership by the White House. "The Republicans have chosen to politicize this, to leak this information to reporters – information we provided months ago." But he added: "The whole effort here by Republicans to find some hidden mystery comes to nothing."
    Let's assume, just for the argument's sake, this is true. Let's say these e-mails were provided to Republicans months ago and now they've been leaked. Would that not all but prove this is purely a political witch hunt?

    No. It wouldn't. Even if the emails were provided, nothing you've proposed changes the information contained in the emails. Stop deflecting and changing the subject. This affair does have political implications, and none of them are good for your side of the aisle. Clinton entirely screwed up an initiative in Libya, people were murdered, and then they all lied about it. If there's political hay to be made, you need to remember that your folks plowed the field, planted the grain, and crowed about it. That the harvest is not to their liking is largely their own fault.
