“One person who called said, ‘Watch your back. We know where live and we’re going after you,’” Oscar Aguirre, the son of the owners of Rosa Linda Mexican Cafe, told KMGH New Media Producer Wayne Harrison. “We just didn’t want our business used as a campaign stop.”

Aguirre explained that callers had been misinformed that the restaurant had refused to serve Romney.

Orlando Examiner: Fox News: Obama 'answers to the Quran first and to the Constitution second'

-By Robert Sobel

September 17, 2012- Fox News has once again appealed to the radical base of the Republican party, this time bringing back the "Obama is a Muslim" rhetoric that has gone on since the 2008 election.

After a low-budget, anti-Islamic film went viral on the internet last week, protesters took to the streets across the Middle East, bringing foreign policy to the front page. The U.S. ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, was killed outside the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi along with three other Americans. The response from both sides of the political spectrum came fast and furious, but it was Mitt Romney who pointed his finger in blame at President Obama before he had all the facts about the situation. Many prominent conservative voices quickly criticized Romney, but Fox News was there to cushion his fall.

Gawker: ‘Armed Militia’ of Soldiers Plotted to Take Over Army Base, Assassinate Obama

-By John Cook

August 27, 2012- According to this four-paragraph Associated Press story that raises more questions than it answers, four soldiers based in Georgia hatched an "anarchist" plot to assassinate Barack Obama and take control of Fort Stewart, and then allegedly killed a fellow soldier to keep their plans secret.

According to the story—which will hopefully be updated in short order—one of the accused, Pfc. Michael Burnett, pleaded guilty today in a Long County, Georgia courtroom to the murder of his former comrade Michael Roark and Roark's 17-year-old girlfriend.

Burnett told a Long County judge that Roark, who had just left the Army, knew of the militia group's plans and was killed because he was "a loose end."
