I don't know why this didn't occur to me earlier, but it just hit me this instant.

I was messaging Stoker Mac (b/r's preeminent boxing authority), asking him about articles of his that have been deleted. I commented that I've had two pulled, both dealing with Rush Limbaugh.

I happened to glance in the lower right corner of the Web page (all the way at the bottom, mind you) and saw the Fox logo.

Then it hit me like a bolt of stupid lightning.

Rupert Murdoch controls Fox.

Rupert Murdoch is a staunch Republican.

Taking a guess, I'd say he's probably a big fan of the pill-poppin' prognosticator.

I wonder why my stories were pulled?

Due diligence by Tim Coughlin?

A desire by B/R to stay out of the political arena?

Or is the puppet master pulling the strings from behind the scenes like always?

Stay tuned folks. I know it's been a while, but I'm fixing to get in B/R's @$$ sideways on this one...
