Well well.... Of course you can argue Van Jones is minuscule if you ignore ALL THE REST on the list. Which is the entire point. More tortuous gymnastics to dismiss the real dissent, the real critical issues and the real problems with this admin ..they are anti property, anti free enterprise, anti profit as all being evil and parts of greed, and abuse of the workers, and want to blame American faults on the propertied ruling classes beginning with the evil at birth theft born at Jamestown, VA.
Let me be precise here: Fox News peddles a fair amount of hateful crap. Some of it borders on sedition. Much of it is flat out untrue.
But I don't understand why the White House would give such poisonous helium balloons as Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity the opportunity for still greater spasms of self-inflation by declaring war on Fox.
If the problem is that stories bloated far beyond their actual importance--ACORN's corruption, Van Jones's radical past--are in danger of leaching out of the Fox hothouse into the general media, then perhaps the Administration should be a bit more diligent about whom it hires and whom it funds.
If the problem is broader--that Fox News spreads seditious lies to its demographic sliver of an audience--the Administration should probably be stoic: the wingnuts will always be with us. The best antidote to their garbage is elegant, intelligent governance. The next-best antidote is occasional engagement: I thought Obama came away from his O'Reilly and Chris Wallace interviews much the better for it. (Though you don't want to sit down with a thug like Hannity or a weirdo like Beck.)

Better they should eschew the ideals of the idiot Grayson (the republicans are REALLY REALLY the enemy), who I stated was actually at the center of the ruling dem's philosophical bell curve, and recognize that Sharia might be sedition, but that adhering to the Constitution CAN NEVER BE. Although, while you might be busy trying to find a way around this 'imperfect document' to achieve the end you sincerely think is good, those demanding you stop and sail close to the written intention of the founders might indeed seem seditious.
