Gunwalker, aka Fast & Furious, has been brewing and growing in scope for weeks now and I'm hearing very little on "the news" about it. This News of the World hoohah has been going on for far less time, yet it made the radio news yesterday. All day.
The filthy looters are using as an excuse what happened in Britain to pillory, excoriate and abuse Murdoch and Fox News, by extension. Just the "crisis" they wanted.
