Peter King, Fox News, Lies — Anybody Surprised?

Congressman Peter King (R-NY) said on Fox News that the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald should be prosecuted as well as Edward Snowden.  He accused Greenwald of threatening to reveal the names of CIA agents, something Greenwald vigorously denies.

But most Fox viewers are going to hear only King’s wild accusation and not Greenwald’s vehement (and as far as I can tell, accurate) denial.  This is a prime example of how Fox skews perceptions and polarizes this country.  There’s enough here to debate and dissect without accusing Greenwald of stuff he hasn’t done.

As for King’s anti-terror bona fides, let’s not forget his support for the Irish Republican Army.
