Fox News won't touch Murdoch story with a "ten foot turban Durbin"

Notwithstanding the amusing spectacle of Fox Newspeople avoiding discussion of their parent firm's legal troubles in Britain, what on earth is a "ten foot turban?" It's like "Hey, ten foot pole is so cliché! I know, I'll dress it up with a touch of contextually meaningless racism. That's the ticket." Update: on the contrary, it is a dick joke! It is very likely a reference to Sen. Richard "Dick" Durbin, discussed earlier in the segment: far less offensive, unless you are Sen. Richard "Dick" Durbin.
