A day after the shooting at the Washington DC Holocaust Museum, it appears that Fox News has made the conscious decision to limit its reporting on the incident. Apparently, they only mentioned “Holocaust” and “van Brunn” three times during Prime Time. Three. From TVeyes.com for the previous 21 hours:

As of 10 a.m., the totals looked like this:

CNN: at least 168 mentions.

MSNBC: at least 121 mentions.

Fox News: at least 89 mentions.

The question is why? Is it because Fox News is embarassed by their incorrectly critical reporting of the Homeland Security reports on right-wing extremists? Is it because the shooter is not Muslim, but rather had ties to the Klu Klux Klan?

Apparently gay penguins were more important.
