Me: Garrett’s leaving fox.

Him:That is horrible news.  I really like Major Garrett.  They must have offered him a ton of money to leave that front row seat at the White House. At least he will still be in journalism.”

Me: Don’t you mean that “at least NOW he’ll be in journalism”????

Are you hearing Glenn Beck begging for JUST ONE journalist to investigate and report on what is happening, placing truth above politics?  You think he’s not including the Fox “newsroom” on this???   I have HAD it with Fox.  Methinks Garrett might too.

Her: “That’s really disappointing because he’s so good. But this does offer us the opportunity to link to his stuff directly.”

Me: “And it will be very interesting to see if he’ll rip off the muzzle and writes what he really wants America to know…  we’ll see.  And then we’ll know…  Compare and contrast what he reports then with what he’s been reporting.”

Her: “Not even Fox is covering 8/28 and that is a disgrace…”

Me: “I have a suspicion that Glenn might be making an announcement pretty soon — the Glenn Beck online TV network.  Buh bye, Fox.

Sooner than later…
