What are these guys thinking? Fox News is the ONLY place you can turn for a balanced view of the news. I guess I'll have to watch CNN or ABC to find out what happened...but I can't hear the TV because my BS detector keeps going off.

I have no reason to disbelieve this report but, for the life of me, I cannot understand SECDEF going on a "diplomatic" junket at this time. He has plenty of under-secretaries he could send to get his word across if a face-to-face talk was required.

Its not subterfuge Mud, its just that Saudi, Uzbeckistan and Oman (the very countries he's going to visit) apparently objected to US strikes that were going to happen yesterday or the day before. Its all over the threads. He's going there to get them back on board. If he can.

I wonder why Rumsfeld would do this? Our government has learned over the last 50 years to rely heavily on propaganda. We can see how subservient the majority of our press is to our federal government's propaganda requirements. Perhaps Fox is out of step?

I dunno, but I'd bet "golf" is part of the equation.

The problem with Rita Cosby was that her presence caused the maximum take-off weight of the plane to be exceeded. Though she does have a nice face.....odd voice. Linda Vester is a babe, though she can look like a Rutabaga at times.

.... Secretary Rumsfeld had kicked Fox News off his plane for his trip around the Middle East.

Did Snow give a reason why, or are you trying to solicit our opinions? If it's the latter, I say, so what!

This may be BIG news to you and others, but it's no big deal at all to me. Rumsfeld is in charge and if he chooses to kick any media outlet off his plane, thats his prerogative. Stop making a mountain out of a ant hill.

There are more important things to be concerned about right at this time. Wouldn't you agree?

Why? Maybe he does (they do)not want news coverage of his dealings.

I wonder why they even call it the "Rush Limbaugh Show". So far in 2001, I think guest hosts have been on more than Rush. I expect in another year, Rush quits politics and becomes one of those annoying, whispering TV Pro Golf announcers...

What's up with Fox? Was it the only network kicked off? P.S. It would seem that the more money Rush makes the less time he spends on the air. I guess there is a really big golf game out there that he just couldn't miss. Rush should re-name his show and call it the Guest-Host Pot Luck Show.
