Fox claims Monica Crowly "served as Foreign Policy Assistant" to President Nixon.

Ummm. she was born in 1968. Nixon served from 1969 to 1974. He died when she was 21.

Does she have a Tardis or what?

On edit, I photographed the TV of the statement but am on my laptop and can't upload it right now but swear to god they just went there.

2. The standard Faux doctrine applies ...




When you can't distort or exaggerate sufficiently, just make shit up.

3. Her Wikipedia page says she did serve in that role.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monica_Crowley

It was long after his presidency & during the last few years of his life.

Do all ex-Presidents have "foreign policy assistants" 20 years after they leave office?

4. I decided to look this up.. found a book she wrote on amazon

Here is what the blurb says:
Monica Crowley is a host and political and foreign affairs analyst for the Fox News Channel, and the host of the nationally syndicated radio program, The Monica Crowley Show.She has also been a regular panelist on The McLaughlin Group. She served as Foreign Policy Assistant to former President Richard Nixon from 1990 until his death in 1994, and wrote two bestsellers about her experiences, Nixon Off the Record and Nixon in Winter. She has also written for The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, Newsweek, and the New York Post. She holds two Master's degrees and a Doctorate from Columbia University.

So, in 1990 she was 22. Still an idiot, but I suppose she could have been more like an intern or something

7. She was an assistant to Nixon for 1 year right out of college and she's written two books about it?

These people have this scam down. I mean.

6. Titles are often meaningless

"Political Analyst"

"Policy Advisor"

"Second Assistant Vice President"

Et Cetera.

10. Ouch. May you also drool when you get elderly.

Sorry but I am a little sensitive about elder bashing because I am dealing with aging parents. It is not a joking matter.
