George Stephanopoulos, seemingly trying to rationalize ABC's spiking of the subject, came aboard Good Morning America to dismiss the matter as “a summer squall.” Stephanopoulos was impressed by how the White House handled it: “The fact they got it out of the way before the end of the Labor Day weekend, before his spokespeople like Robert Gibbs, who's appearing on This Week come on this morning, I think will contain any kind of damage.”
MIKE VIQUEIRA: Good morning, Lester. The President does return from Camp David today ending his vacation, but it does end on a sour note. Van Jones, that's the President's “green gobs” czar, has resigned overnight after it became known that before joining the administration he signed a petition put forward by those who believe that the government had a hand in 9/11. He also made comments comparing George W. Bush to a drug addict....
That White House advisor, Van Jones, says he is the victim of a “vicious smear campaign” from the right, but he says he's resigning because he doesn't want to draw attention from the fights to come this fall over health care and energy and climate change legislation.
Reporter Stephanie Sy stressed how Jones' remarks on various topics “were all made before he joined the Obama administration, but made him an easy target for conservatives.” She acknowledged Jones “in fact did describe himself as an aspiring communist revolutionary in his youth,” but, she highlighted, “he said he is the victim of a 'vicious smear campaign of lies and distortion.'” Sy featured Howard Dean lamenting Jones will no longer be able “to help this country,” before she concluded: “Democrats worry that Van Jones is only the first of Mr. Obama's so-called policy czars...that will be targeted by Republicans.”

No, even now, I refuse to go all caps.

On ABC they are spinning their own ignorance of the story by claiming "most Americans never heard of Van Jones"

How was this guy vetted? Van Jones did not hide under a rock for 40 years then appear, as a consultant to Obama.

Fox just spins things the opposite direction. Though to be fair to them, I think they have been supplanted as the most useless, out of touch, spin driven "news" agency in the world by MSNBC. MSNBC is just terrible.

Don't tell me that there are people on here who believe that Fox News tells the truth?
Judging by the title on this, you seem a bit paranoid.
Really? Every news channel except for Fox is in on it?
They are on par with eachother, except for the fact that Fox simply Ignores reality and panders to the non-educated.
