Fox News covers Brett Kimberlin and Patterico SWATting story

Finally. A national media breakthrough.

Twitchy has covered the chilling story of life-threatening political terrorism at the hands of the Brett Kimberlin. Conservative bloggers recently rallied together to get the word out. The result? The power of grassroots and truth to power solidarity made at least one media outlet pay attention.

We noted earlier today that Brit Hume had weighed in.

And Fox News has covered Brett Kimberlin’s past shady activities:

Thank you, Fox News. They’re covering the free speech-squelching online terrorists that no one else in the mainstream media will cover. Any other takers?

So far, no. Other media outlets are too busy trying to make oh-so-tired hay over “birtherism.”

Print media? They are too busy continuing to try to convince people that Mormons are nutty nuts.

Quiet milestone. They’ve been doing nothing but screeching it from their Ivory Tower rooftops. But life-threatening political terrorism? Deafening silence.

Some still express hope that others will follow Fox’s lead.

Time will tell. Kudos, Fox News, for being journalists and reporting on this potentially deadly situation. We hope others do follow suit.

    I missed the program, but have it on tape to watch tonight. I read on the net the US State Department, hosted a group of people from mid eastern countries, and introduced Kimberlin to the crowd. I wonder what he knowledge to impart. Maybe it was how to make a bomb, or how to get out of jail and prosper, with the help of a few rich benefactors– George Soros, Barbara Streisand and Senator John Kerry’s wife -Theresa Heinz Kerry. along with a forgiving country, who will aid you with the bestowal of a non-profit status.

    If the kneepad media ever cover this, Kimberlin will be described as a Tea Party fanatic.


    When will someone silence the “One Hit Wonder”, Kimberlin? Has the world not realized that he is using the same old saw over and over and over again? Or is his tactic “If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it”; i.e., if the lies still work why change them? Soon, very soon, he should be called on the carpet by the other side for making them look bad.
    Not that it’s difficult to do that… or that they need any help… Well. Maybe they won’t call him on the carpet. He’d probably accuse them of the same thing and get a “peace warrant” on them!
