Today, Newsbusters, in response to that Politico piece, finally ran an article that acknowledged the existence of the conservative criticism but coming after a week of these shenanigans, the attempted spin by Melissa Mullins is surreal:
"Apparently, the people at Politico are shocked that Fox News is living up to its 'Fair and Balanced' slogan, claiming that the network personalities '…have seemingly been at odds all week over Pamela Geller.' Oh my. Two different views – that’s almost unheard of!"
Moments that invoke the word "Orwellian" are, alas, significantly less than "unheard of" when dealing with the MRC.
 Thursday, for example, Clay Waters attacked an editorial in the New York Times which had argued that events like the Muhammad art contest "can serve only to exacerbate tensions and to give extremists more fuel,” but like the rest of the MRC writers, Waters declined to relay to his readers that Fox's top-rated host Bill O’Reilly had offered the same sentiment. So had ultra-right-wing radio talk-show host Laura Ingraham, Donald Trump, the Catholic League's Bill Donohue (whose articles are sometimes published by the MRC), and so on -- most of this happening on Fox through the week.
