No Fox News?

Name the American four-star general who forbid Fox News on his staff and command center floor.

General McChrystal.

Yeah, this came out Friday in a couple of small media spots. I read through this and it's rather odd.

The way that these general's command centers work.....they have cable TV piped in....and typically there's at least a dozen channels in these far-off remote locations....sometimes even thirty channels.

For most command centers....there's the Bloomberg Channel, MSNBC, CNN, Fox News, and even BBC. They will have a split-screen deal up and be running TV twenty-four hours a day. Except in this case....in Afghanistan and with General McChrystal's team....no Fox News.

I kinda sat there and laughed over this story. One of the most liberal magazines out on the market today....destroyed the career of General McChrystal, and his biggest worry up until that day? Fox News. It kinda says alot.
