FOX Friends still missing, but FOXophobes don't seem to care
The most common suspicion among my readers is that bias against Fox News Channel is coming into play. Another possible factor may be Fox's own internal strategy of keeping the story low-key while it negotiates for Centanni and Wiig's release. Or is it because Centanni is not a high-profile player in the Washington media scene--not a spotlight-hogging insider or industry schmoozer?While the AP has now issued a report, and CNN did report about the case, if they didn't do it immediately, that can be a sign that their bias against FOX is what made them go slowly about it.
Whatever the reason, I find the apparent apathy about Centanni and Wiig's kidnapping grossly disturbing. Centanni is not just a fellow journalist. He is a fellow American. He is missing. And there should be a hell of a lot more outrage about it than I've seen so far--from the media, from our government, from our nation.
Keep these two good journalists in your prayers, everyone.
