Here's How To Tell Fox Is On The Defensive

Look for this story to get more and more airplay as the Arizona shooting thing keeps on going in the other media.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -- South Carolina officials have called in a special team of investigators to review the case of a Rochester, New York, teenager who disappeared nearly two years ago while on spring break in Myrtle Beach.

The Sun News of Myrtle Beach reports that members of Project Alert are expected in South Carolina on Monday to review the case of Brittanee Drexel.

Project Alert is made up of retired law enforcement professionals trained by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Drexel was 17 and on spring break when she traveled to Myrtle Beach with friends and without her parents' consent. She was last seen outside a Myrtle Beach hotel in April 2009.
"Find me a missing blonde teenage girl! What? How long ago? I don't care, use it anyway." Honestly, is this so newsworthy today?

Oh yeah. Brittanee hysteria should make for good cover for a few weeks. Of course most media haven't come out of the curiously non-partisan "The dude was bat-shit" mode yet, which leaves who throw rhetorical grenades free to lay down denials

Columnist in the Washington Post noted that the only real way to tone down right-wing public rhetoric is for the right to police itself (the same would be true on the left, if this were the sitch.) Not much of that happening yet.
