If you had tuned into Fox today to hear about the latest project of conservative filmmaker James O'Keefe and Andrew Breitbart, you would have been sorely disappointed. O'Keefe's exposé on purported abuse and waste by U.S. census workers wasn't even mentioned on Hannity, Glenn Beck or The O'Reilly Factor.
Talk about a flop.
When O'Keefe's first ACORN video debuted on Beck's show last fall, the next day Fox News devoted at least 17 segments on six different programs to the video.
So how to explain Fox News' apathy toward the latest video?
Perhaps Fox News got the memo about trusting O'Keefe and Breitbart.
Perhaps Fox News found O'Keefe's editing of the latest video to be deceitful.
Perhaps Fox News fails to see anything egregious or compelling in the video.
Or maybe Fox News is just upset O'Keefe and Breitbart gave their exclusive to ABC's Good Morning America.
Whatever it is, let's hope that Fox News' indifference means these two con artists will finally go away.
