Fox furthers ‘death panel’ hysteria with ‘death book’ claim

Published

on

Instead of discussing the weeks’ news Sunday, Chris Wallace devoted the first segment of “Fox News Sunday” to by trying to prove President Barack Obama’s administration was encouraging veterans to choose to die. “We’re going to do something different here today. Usually we discuss the news, but today we’re going to tell you about something you may never have heard about, what critics are calling the ‘death book,’ a 52-page pamphlet the Department of Veterans Affairs is using right now in end-of-life counseling for the nation’s 24 million veterans,” explained Wallace.

Wallace talked to Jim Towey, the Bush administrations’ Director of White House Faith Based Initiatives. In a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Towey claimed a end-of-life planned document in use by the Veterans Administration was steering veterans to “predetermined conclusions.”

But Towey could benefit financially if the Veteran’s Administration drops the current material “Your life, Your choices” used for end-of-life consultations. Towey sells his own materials that compete with documentation currently in use.

Wallace pointed out Towey’s financial stake. “You have written an end-of-life document yourself called “Five Wishes,” which is widely used around the country. In the course of this controversy the last couple of days, V.A. officials are suggesting you want the government to buy and use your book,” said Wallace.

“They can if they want. Millions of americans do. But that’s not what this is about,” answered Towey.

Critics slam Alan Dershowitz after he fights to defend his own questionable reputation

Published

on

Formerly respected attorney Alan Dershowitz shifted into damage control Saturday on Twitter, perhaps in an attempt to win his way back into the dark heart of Donald Trump, at least for the moment.

Dershowitz had been a bad boy earlier this week when he told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo that “if you’re betting money you can’t afford to lose, you have to bet that the outcome of the election will not be reversed.” That couldn’t have pleased the home offices at Mar-A-Lago and Moscow.
