(WASHINGTON TIMES) Attorney General Eric Holder turned a critical eye to Fox News for pressing the administration to refer to ongoing terrorism attacks with the Islam label, saying that nothing could be “gained by saying that” and that the media outlet was simply stirring a pot that didn’t need to be stirred.
“We spend more time, more time talking about what you call it, as opposed to what do you do about it, you know? I mean really,” Mr. Holder said, to a National Press Club crowd, Fox News reported. “If Fox didn’t talk about this, they would have nothing else to talk about, it seems to me.”
