Americablog notes that Fox News is pushing a new talking point, in the quote by FEMA director Michael Brown:
Brown of FEMA: We work closely with the state government. The federal government didn not just come in here and tell the state governor how or what to do. We came in here and said, ‘What do you want us to do? We will help you.’ We are now taking it upon ourselves to do what we think needs to be done. And we will continue to do that.
Translation: LA’s Democratic governnor screwed things up royally and now we’re cleaning up her mess and taking charge.
