Our collection of favorite videos this week includes Sen. Chuck Schumer nailing the Bush administration on the firing of U.S. attorneys, the Discovery Channel drooling over a weapon that kills Americans, and “The Simpsons” dressing down Fox News.
No. 1: Discovery Channel Shows Off Penetrator Bomb
One of the weapons used with devastating effect against U.S. forces in Iraq is the so-called explosively formed penetrator, which the administration has accused Iran of producing. Astonishingly, the Discovery Channel recently aired a puff piece that delightedly showed off such a bomb, complete with a demonstration of how effective the compact device was against armored military targets.
No. 2: Schumer Ties Bush to U.S. Attorney Scandal
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced Tuesday that there is now “direct evidence that Attorney General Gonzales was carrying out the political wishes of the president” when he fired U.S. attorneys.
No. 3: ‘Simpsons’ Nails Fox News
“The Simpsons” has never shied away from biting the hand that feeds it. In this classic clip, the show eviscerates Fox News in what may be the greatest ever indictment of the network. It’s worth watching multiple times just to take in the “crawl.”
