What, me panic?

That had to have been a head-scratcher over at the Fair 'n' Balanced Network. Here's the vice president telling people he wouldn't want his family taking airplanes or subways* just now, and the airline industry is kinda upset that he's spreading fear and loathing panic like that, so ... if only we had a precedent for deciding how to label this! I know! It's fearmongering!

Oh, that centerpiece from March 15? Totally different case. It's all in the hand angle. Cheney's calming America down with his gravitas and reassuring body language. Biden, he's raising his hand to swear on a stack of Bibles that he wrote the Gettysburg Address or something.

Anyway, glad we could clear that up for you.

* Automobiles, as best I can tell, weren't part of the statement in question. But on Planet Fox, being able to work a movie title into a hed beats getting the thing right.
