I'm don't think "quarantine" means what right-wing blogger Allah Pundit thinks it does

Whining on behalf of Fox News, Allah Pundit makes this peculiar claim:
The irony of this story, though, is that the press was already happy to quarantine "wingnut" stories emanating from Fox, be it Van Jones or ACORN or the White House trying to politicize the NEA.
The liberally biased mainstream media were happy to "quarantine" the ACORN story? They were happy to ignore it and keep it at a safe distance? Um, not quite. And don't take my word for it, take Nexis'.
Number of news reports that contained at least four "ACORN" mentions since the story broke last month: 3,526.
Number of newspapers that covered the story during the month of Sept.: 270.
Number of newspapers that have covered the story since Oct. 1: 133
