Media Matters : Dobson thinks Foley matter a joke

Media Matters - Echoing Drudge and Savage, Dobson and Henninger claimed Foley scandal is "sort of a joke" and a "prank" by pages: "Commenting on the congressional page scandal surrounding former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) on the October 6 broadcast of Focus on the Family, James Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family, declared that the Foley affair has 'turned out to be what some people are now saying was a -- sort of a joke by the boy and some of the other pages' who had reportedly come forward with sexually explicit instant messages that Foley allegedly sent. Similarly, in his October 6 column, Wall Street Journal deputy editorial page editor Daniel Henninger wrote that 'a rumor emerged that in fact Mark Foley had been pranked by the House pages' and then added: 'It is the first plausible thing I've heard in seven days.'"
