Tomorrow’s (Fox) News Today!

Every once in a while you hear some new crackpot meme—Agenda 21, Pizzagate, “stand down,” etc.—and you wonder what it’s about and where it came from. Usually, though, it’s too much work to figure out the whole bizarro history behind it, so you just shrug and move on.

But today is different! It’s your chance to get in on the ground floor of the latest crackpot meme. Check this out:

Now, Comey’s expression might say WTF, but his actual answer is that the FBI interview of Michael Flynn did indeed follow the guidelines set out in the Domestic Investigations Operations Guide. But obviously Fox’s ace intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge has something in mind here, and you can bet we’re going to hear about it shortly. Before long, DIOG will be the meme du jour and your friends will all be scratching their chins wondering what a DIOG is. But you’ll be able to explain it all to them!

Maybe. I mean, you never know which new memes are going to take off and which ones will die an unheralded death. For right now, though, it looks like DIOG has a fighting chance of becoming shorthand for Mike Flynn is an American hero and he’s in jail only because Jim Comey had it in for him. Stay tuned.

POSTSCRIPT: Yes, you can hear the sound of a duck quacking in the background starting around the 25-second mark. Don’t worry about it. It’s someone having fun with their cell phone or something.

ONE MORE QUICK THING:

Or at least we hope. It’s fall fundraising time, and we’re trying to raise $250,000 to help fund Mother Jones’ journalism during a shorter than normal three-week push.

If you’re reading this, a fundraising pitch at the bottom of an article, you must find our team’s reporting valuable and we hope you’ll consider supporting it with a donation of any amount right now if you can.

It’s really that simple. But if you’d like to read a bit more, our membership lead, Brian Hiatt, has a post for you highlighting some of our newsroom's impressive, impactful work of late—including two big investigations in just one day and covering voting rights the way it needs to be done—that we hope you'll agree is worth supporting.
