Turned up to eleven: Fair and Balanced

Wednesday, March 13, 2002

Here is a domestic terrorism story that I haven't heard much of in the blogosphere (although Kathy Kinsley mentioned it). The interesting quote;
FBI spokesman Ross Rice downplayed any terror links to the case. "This is not a terrorist plot," Rice said. "I don't think it's a big deal."
It is unclear on what basis they are saying that this is not a terrorist plot. It is possible that they meant that it wasn't an Al-Qaeda plot, but it seems pretty clear to me that terrorism is exactly what this is.
