Just another slow summertime news day this Friday. All we have is:
- An attempted coup in Turkey;
- The release of the 28 secret pages from the 9/11 Commission Report describing the Saudi - Al Qaeda connections;
- Trumps ends the suspense with Pence.
The terror attack in Nice is soo yesterday.
And do let me add - it must be tough running a cable news operation on a Friday afternoon, but..
On Fox I saw some conspiracist I did not recognize leading a panel of three unfamiliar faces.
CNN had Wolf Blitzer, I believe from a secure remote location.
And MSNBC, normally my go-away-from channel due to the Maddow/Sharpton effect, had Brian Williams in the studio with Andrea Mitchell, Chuck Todd and David Sanger of the Times on camera.
Sure, they are all Beltway liberals but when any of them say "my sources tell me", well, they all have been at this a while and have some real sources.
