Fox's Roger Ailes and his Corn Holing

There's theories o'plenty out there on the Fitzgerald investigation. Like this, this, and this.

But oddly enough, not one I've ever read has anything to do with journalist David Corn.

So why Fox News talking head, Roger Ailes tried to finger David Corn (huh-huh, that sounds naughty) from The Nation as a target in the investigation is beyond me. Has Corn even been involved in any way? I just did a brief Google search and didn't come up with anything. Am I missing something?

Or is Roger Ailes trying to shamelessly divert attention from Judy Miller, Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, and Dick Cheney by throwing out a bold-faced fabrication? It's ludicrous! But you've got to hand it to him for being such a good little sheep and following his Republican masters off the cliff. Ailes undying loyalty and dedication to the Bush Administration is matched only by the likes of Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity.

But let's just say David Corn was a target of the investigation. And he and Scooter Libby left the country together to avoid an embarrassing indictment. Would we see headlines like this?

Headlines like that would be entertaining and might get more people to watch Fox News. Perhaps that is Roger Ailes real motivation....
