On Tuesday, the AP noted that loud protests at town halls have “dominated coverage” of the health care debate during the congressional recess thus far. On Fox News yesterday, Carl Cameron, who was covering Sen. Chuck Grassley’s town halls, reported that the Iowa Republican was “taking credit” for “the August vacation town halls that we’re now in the midst of”:

SMITH: But Grassley’s sort of taking credit for all these town halls, right?

CAMERON: Yeah, that’s right. Well, he’s the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, the one of five committees yet to pass a bill. And he says all of the delay caused by his collaboration and willingness to negotiate slowed this process and there by created the August vacation town halls that we’re now in the midst of. The idea being all of the voices of dissent wouldn’t have been heard had he not been part of the negotiating process.
