Showdown, the new book by David Corn has gotten the attention of Fox News. HuffPost reports that last night, FNC’s Bret Baier created a Showdown of his own by calling out Corn over allegations made in the book. Corn says Fox News helped push the myth that POTUS was a Muslim and this is among the reasons his popularity sank. Baier says that they have found “no evidence” of any host saying that the President is a Muslim.
It wasn’t long before Current TV’s bouncy David Shuster came to Corn’s defense on Twitter as he posted this in response to Baier.

SHOTS FIRED! Shuster references a segment from Baier’s show in 2009 that asked if POTUS was a Muslim.
Just moments ago, Baier fired back with a vicious retort about the WEATHER.
Gorgeous day in Chicago – high of 83 today – are you kidding me?May do the show front the lakefront. .

OK, so we can’t really imagine baby faced Bret Baier getting into a real Twitter fight, but it’s fun to dream. We have a strong feeling we haven’t heard the end of this saga.
