Maybe I’m wrong. Maybe this is the instinct in the New York Times newsroom and all over the MSM. But I have an itch that suggests not.
I may have misheard–was doing other things at the time, but as I turned on FNC a few minutes ago, Bret Baier, Pentagon correspondent at Fox, seemed to immediately assume in his rapid-response commentary on Fox and Friends that the rescue of the Christian peace activists last week might have played a role in Carroll’s release.
So within minutes of news of her release, their guy presumes something doubly good came of a Coalition–and American!–action.
Poor Bret might never make it in a non-Ailes world. But he looks to be well and good and clear-minded right where he is.
