Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The understanding of, let alone the respect for, the niceties of international law by a substantial majority of US citizens may be a reason for DOJ hesitancy. Most would likely respond:

"What? you are prosecuting Fox for publishing a picture of Saddam Hussein in his underwear! He doesn't deserve any civil rights!"

And, from the right:

"They are just piling on Fox News. Part of Obama's Kenyan-Communist-Islamist agenda!" Some on Fox may even say this or something very close to it.

"It is not necessary to have hope in order to persevere."
