STILL No Word from Brit Hume

Reported by Melanie - February 24, 2005

On February 9, 2005 I posted: Brit Hume: Resign. On February 16, 2005 I posted: Still No Word from Fox's Brit Hume. (Please read either post for background information.)

Comment: I post again today to reiterate our support for Al Franken and James Roosevelt, Jr. in their call for "a retraction, an apology," or even the "resignation" of Fox News's Brit Hume. Hume shamelessly rearranged sentences written in l935 by Franklin Delano Roosevelt to falsely imply that Roosevelt would favor the Bush administration's effort to "privatize Social Security."

When Hume read the manufactured "quote" on air as an accurate representation of what Roosevelt wrote, he showed himself to be a shill for the Bush administration, not a purveyor of "fair and balanced news."
