Now You See It, Now You Don’t

For the past week or so, I have been writing about the ominous implications of Carl Cameron’s four-part Fox News exposé of Israeli intelligence operations in the US. My most recent column on the subject was posted today (December 21). Cameron’s reports are, of course, key to understanding the context of these columns: without them, there is no way to understand either the context or the content of what I have written. We provided links to these reports in the column, and fully expected the links to remain valid, as Fox usually keeps its stories up for a month or so. But not this time….

The news that Fox had pulled the Cameron reports from its website was, to me, quite surprising. Now, it could be a technical glitch, a mistake, or whatever: after all, one assumes the Fox News people want visitors to their website, and the more the merrier – right?

Israel’s amen corner in the US is vocal, well-organized, and not averse to censorship when it advances their agenda, and so outside pressure on Fox News to pull the series cannot be ruled out. As disturbing as it is to contemplate, it seems that censorship is indeed a strong possibility in this case – that is, Fox News is engaging in self-censorship, for reasons of its own.

Our readers may wish to ask questions for themselves, or protest. They can do so by writing foxnewsonline@foxnews.com or special@foxnews.com.

Meanwhile, we have redirected those links to the posted articles at FreeRepublic.com – and all I can say at this juncture is "Thank God for Free Republic!" – a place where the journalistic record is untouched and uncensored.

"Carl Cameron Reports – Some U.S. investigators believe that Israel is spying in and on the U.S. and may have known things they didn’t tell us before September 11"
