Clinton lashes out at Fox News...and more.

Have you caught up with Bill Clinton's interview on Fox News?

It was supposed to be about his Global Initiative but was, as you could have guessed, a political ambush. The old neo-con smear that Clinton did nothing about Bin Laden was rolled out yet again, that the disasters we have thanks to BushW are actually all Clinton's fault.

This time though Clinton hit back. Copies of the interview naturally found their way onto the 'net, but then they disappeared from YouTube - apparently a DCMA complaint was filed by Fox News Network, L.L.C. against the YouTube web site and the 'offending' videos removed. They are now back on the site.

It really is a video worth watching and you can find it here.

It's provoked a huge amount of comment, amongst which is one that I think is quite remarkable.

On his Countdown programme on MSNBC TV, Keith Olbermann really lets go at Fox and BushW.

"...a past President, bullied and sandbagged by a monkey posing as a newscaster, finally lashed back."

"The nation's freedoms are under assault by an administration whose policies can do as much damage as Al Qaeda."

"The nation's marketplace of ideas is being poisoned by a propaganda company so blatant that Tokyo Rose would have quit."

It really is a remarkable attack and you can watch it on the programme's Special Comment segment.
