Apparently, 'All Those Congressmen Look Alike' Anyway...

While it may be notable simply that Fox "News" bothered to report on a Congressional indictment at all --- oh, wait, this one concerned a Democratic member, so of course they reported it, silly! --- by now it's hardly notable at all that Fox, either accidentally or on purpose (hardly matters anymore), played the race card, again, in the most abhorrent way.

TPM's Josh Marshall has the skinny, and the video, right here...

Just by way of reminder, remember what Fox "News" did when they had no choice but to finally report on a Republican scandal? Here's your memorable BRAD BLOG flashback.

UPDATE 6/5/07: Wow. Fox's version of an "apology" for showing Conyers as Jefferson was run today. About as feeble as it could possibly be and still be labeled an "apology" by any stretch of the imagination. See for yourself...

LATER UPDATE 6/5/07: Conyers issues statement on tepid Fox "apology." He was never contacted by FNC, and doesn't appreciate it. Full statement now here...
