Caught My Eye…

All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each another’s audience
Outside the gilded cage
– Limelight (Rush)

Welcome to the big show to end the week “Caught My Eye” (CME)!

If you are a first-time visitor, CME is posted right here every Friday morning. This is when I take a look at some of the stories I did not have time to write about during the week. I often throw in a touch of sarcasm to make you smile – or to irritate you just a little – maybe both.

Topics that I am providing commentary about today include Jon Tester/Steve Daines taking/getting credit, Rosendale & life, migrant children – are you kidding me, the IG & Comey, The Fourth Estate, and One More Thing!

That Uranium One Deal/Scandal

Three things cannot be long hidden: the sun, the moon, and the truth. – Buddha

Probably one of the best explanations of the “Uranium One deal-Clinton Foundation scandal” came from Fox News anchor Shepherd Smith.

The Washington Post reported that Smith debunked what his own network has called the Hillary Clinton uranium “scandal,” infuriating Fox viewers, some of whom suggested that he ought [to] work for CNN or MSNBC.

Since I am a little older, I can still remember back to a time when we wanted and expected our anchors to tell us the truth and be accurate and not partisan.

You can catch the explanation from Smith below. It’s some of the best six minutes of reporting that you will ever see from the Fox News channel:
