Despite Nuke Deal,

Fox Butterfield, Is That You? 
“Despite Nuke Deal, US Remains Iran’s ‘Great Satan’ ”—headline, Agence France-Presse, July 15
James Taranto at the WSJ has a running bit highlighting Fox Butterfield logic. I like to keep track of them so I'll put them here for future reference.

Fox Butterfield, Is That You?
  • “Trump has repeatedly found himself in hot water from some corners of the political universe in the few weeks since his campaign rollout, yet he has nonetheless dominated national headlines and remains high in the polls.”—Julian Hattem,, July 14
  • “Think about it; since [Jon] Stewart started hosting his show Fox News has thrived—and it has thrived despite a constant, biting satirical show hosted by Stewart that consistently called out Fox News failures.”—Sophia McClennen, Salon, July 15
