Ultimately, the only rebuttal necessary is: It’s Newsweek.
I agree about this being, "just newsweek".
However, I watched enough of John Scott's(?) piece on the birth of Jesus the other day to know that Fox News is no better. It was on liberal "scholar" after another with nary an attempt to provide the "fair and balanced" other side of the story.
Fox News should have been ashamed, but they're too busy trying to be mainstream to dirty their hands with solid, reliable, conservative scholarship.
