It's slipped through the cracks, but Rupert Murdoch just told the world what the world has already long known.

Today, Mr. Murdoch sent out a tweet about Chris Christie's praise of President Obama's efforts during the recent hurricane crisis. Yes, okay, the tweet itself did get attention.

Fair enough. Everyone has figured pretty easily that the Romney campaign and Republicans in general are sort of pissed off at Gov. Christie [R-NJ] for being honest in praising someone for doing a good job at a time of crisis.

But look closer at what Mr. Murdoch wrote. That part at the end. Take a look at it:

"Christie, while thanking O, must re-declare for Romney, or take blame for next four dire years."

Yes, okay, again, I know, its what you expect him to say. So, big deal. Except... no, it's not what you expect him to say. Because he's never before said it.

Keep in mind that Rupert Murdoch is the owner of Fox News. And yes, while not everyone considers Fox News to be an actual news organization, Fox News itself likes to contend publicly and vociferously that it is. That it's "Fair and Balanced." That it merely reports the facts and lets you decide.

Real journalists. Fair. Balanced. Unbiased. Impartial.

But now, the guy who heads all that just told you, publicly, that he believes anyone who helps the Democrat has to take the "blame for next four dire years."

Now, no matter how much you may or may not agree with that assessment of the next four years -- do you think that statement is unbiased? Presuming you're unbiased enough to be fair and balanced about it, of course.

Consider for a moment if the owner of CBS, NBC or ABC wrote something similar about Mitt Romney. That they said if some Democrats was helping the Republican nominee, "Must re-declare for Obama, or take blame for next four dire years."

There would be howls so loud you could hear them in the Cayman Islands.

And you know, they'd be right.

O'Reilly Denies Fox's History Of Slandering Obama On Benghazi
On his Fox News show, Bill O'Reilly declared that no one "here" has ever called President Obama a murderer or liar over his handling of the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. But several Fox figures have accused Obama of purposely allowing Americans to die in Benghazi, and just last week, O'Reilly himself questioned a fellow Fox News host about having labeled the president a liar on Libya.
O'Reilly addressed the issue on his Friday show when guest Geraldo Rivera told him that President Obama deserves an apology for the way he's been treated in the press following the Benghazi attack. Rivera stated, "The president of the United States has been absolutely slandered over this story. He's been called a murderer and a liar." O'Reilly then interjected: "OK. But not by anybody here, and not by rational people."

Guess it depends on your definition of slander. Some call it truth seeking and holding those repsonsible accountable.

Criticizing Administration Policy Is Legitimate and Absolutely Necessary, Lying About It Isn’t

The main problem with Romney’s intervention Tuesday night and yesterday morning was that his entire criticism of the administration’s response to the attacks was thoroughly dishonest. This wasn’t a matter of having a different, more skeptical interpretation of something that happened. This was a case of accusing the administration of something (i.e., sympathizing with embassy attackers) that it plainly had not done and wasn’t about to do. It would have been perfectly legitimate and even useful for Romney to ask what the administration intended to do next, question what the security arrangements in Benghazi had been, and insist on accountability for any mistakes. Instead of offering anything remotely resembling constructive criticism, Romney immediately launched a false attack intended to link his opponent with people responsible for assaulting U.S. diplomatic missions.

Criticism of administration policy by a presidential challenger and his party is both legitimate and necessary. It’s a shame that Romney chose to abuse that responsibility. He has not only further discredited himself, but he has also made it that much harder to hold the administration accountable for any real mistakes or failures they might have made.

So is there any 'slander' in that post?

Then you don't want Republicans. They have been preaching nothing but deregulation for decades.

Who passed legislation to stop wall street from nearly killing us gain? Democrats. Who whined about it Republicans.
