Another Freeway Standoff, Michael Jackson, and Give Credit to George Bush

Reported by Donna - June 7, 2005

Practically, the whole show on Studio B with Shepard Smith was spent with a helicopter view of the vehicle standoff with a swat team in Los Angelos.

There was some interruption to, of course, speak about the Michael Jackson trial (why do I get the feeling that Fox wants him found guilty?)

A very short segment, a couple of minutes, were spent with Michael O'Hanlon from the Brookings Institute to give credit to George Bush for giving 700 million dollars in aid to Africa.

Michael O'Hanlon went on to say that while giving Bush credit, the 700 million was far short of what Tony Blair wanted.

The story ended without saying how much Blair had hoped for. As soon as Studio B ended and my taping was finished, I switched to CNN (can't watch Cavuto) and heard the story about the aid to Africa.

Only CNN gave the amount that Blair had hoped for - 50 billion. Hmmm....50 billion as opposed to 700 million? Yes, I'd say it was far short of what Blair wanted.

Comment: Fox only gives you part of the story - telling you that Bush should get credit for giving 700 million in aid to Africa. You have to go to other news outlets to get the whole story, that 50 billion was Tony Blair's goal, that this amount is what's needed.

But, not to care, we had a very entertaining hour watching the LA Freeway back up 11 miles in each direction, while Smith and Trace Gallagher speculated about the man holding two guns to his head.
