A lot of attention has been paid today to a Fox News report about what was originally described as a leaked “DHS memo” that tied Jared Loughner to an anti-immigration, racist group called American Renaissance.
But Fox has walked back its initial description of the memo as coming from the Department of Homeland Security. Now it uses a labored description: “a law enforcement memo based on information provided by DHS.”
That’s not the same thing as a DHS memo, and it suggests somewhat less certainty about whether Loughner’s reference to the group in his internet ramblings is getting special attention from law enforcement.
