[Chugalug] OT: This is not me.

This particular story is what was being referenced.  And the lack of any
even potential of a slant on this particular story means that attacking the
source was not only stupid, but pointless.

This story was merely a reporting of facts.  Bringing up any emotional
issues you have with the source had nothing to do with anything.  That was
my entire point.  The claim was made that since Fox News reported it, there
is no reason to acknowledge it.  That is beyond the pale.

The accused man has publicly acknowledged the events on his personal
Twitter account - (a fact that I pointed out in my first comment on this
thread) - to deny their existence because the source you were given is one
you do not agree with politically is just dumb.

In other words, it is the ones who are bitching about Fox that need to
"calm the hell down" and "shut  up".
