A story floated by Glenn Beck claiming Nancy Pelosi is preparing to ban Fox News reporters from “the halls of Congress” has made its way to the pages of Hugh Hewitt and other citizen journalists. “Talk about an abuse of power!” cries In My Opinion. “Has Nancy Pelosi lost her mind,” asks Patriot Mom. “There Goes Freedom of the Press,” says Branden Espinoza. “Unbelievably shocking abuse of power!” roars The Recliner Commentaries. Etc.
Mass email and poster versions should be available soon, as should the inevitable post-debunking claims that it sounds like something Pelosi would do and therefore deserves wide dissemination.
