Fair and Balanced

April 14, 2010

Richard Dawkins is going to arrest Pope Benedict XVI “for crimes against humanity” when he visits Britain in September for his role in the “cover-up of sexual abuse in the Catholic church. That’s the headline from an article written for The Sunday Times.

But wait a second. My friend, Kristen, over at The Daily Dorkmonger provided me a link directly to Mr. Dawkins’ website where he wrote that he “did NOT say ‘I will arrest Pope Benedict XVI’ or anything so personally grandiloquent.”

It appears that The Sunday Times is owned by none other than Mr. Fair and Balanced, Rupert Murdoch.

Should we be surprised that the sub-editor who wrote the headline for this article is employed by the same employer who brings us the likes of Hannity and Colmes, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck and now Sarah Palin?
