Fox News

I agree with everyone everywhere: Fox News's "why would a Muslim write about Jesus???" interview of Reza Aslan was pretty lousy stuff, yet he handled himself quite well, and good for him for selling more books because of it. All correct. Yet I'm puzzled by what both Aslan's on-air defense and many subsequent commentators imply: that academic/professional credentials inform a person's writing to the exclusion of personal convictions.

Weeks ago I ranted about Fox News's absurd piece on how the new Muppets movie is out to turn children into free-enterprise-hating liberals. Now the film's about to come out in the U.K., and naturally Kermit and Piggy are doing press around the release. Turns out they're perfectly capable of defending themselves on their own.

Note to Eric Bolling, Dan Gainor and Andrea Tantaros: Tex Richman isn't a Muppet. He's a human character, played by Chris Cooper. I know, it's hard to find time to fact-check when you're busy politicizing the Muppets.
