“I Don’t Have to Defend Myself to Fox News”

Fox News has been running now a series of ridiculous “interviews” with Sevan, the head of U.N. Oil-for-Food. They consist of a reporter chasing Sevan, asking him the same questions again and again, and getting nowhere. Sevan responds to the fifth or so “Did you profit off the program?” with “Do you speak English?” Very useful stuff. But I have seen two of them now, and the point always seems to be, for Sevan, that it is Fox, which is not a legitimate news organ, because they are questioning him. Of course, for all the grief it gets, and as silly as these “exclusives” are, where’s CNN staking him out? This is a huge story. Where is everyone?

Dear Reader (And especially Martha McSally’s dog), As I often note, I increasingly tend to see the political scene as a scripted reality show in which the writers don’t flesh out the dialogue so much as move characters into weird, wacky, confrontational, or embarrassing positions. It’s a lot like The ... Read More
