Oops! Republican Curt Weldon Banished from The O'Reilly Factor

Reported by Marie Therese - June 21, 2005

Pennsylvania Congressman Curt Weldon was a no-show for a scheduled interview on last night's O'Reilly Factor. Host O'Reilly noted that Weldon "didn't show up, didn't call, didn't do anything. ... this is grossly irresponsible, so he's banned from The Factor forever and we thought you would like to know what kind of a classy guy the Congressman is. Just didn't show!" Weldon joins Danny Glover as the only guests to bail out on the talk-show host.

Last-minute replacement guest, Judge Andrew Napolitano, noted that, for Rep. Weldon, "this is a career-threatening mistake that he made."

The sad thing is that what Napolitano says is certainly true. For a Republican, ditching a FOX News appearance is a one-way ticket to political oblivion, which corroborates what we News Hounds have been documenting all along- that FOX News Channel is the propaganda arm of the Republican Party. And no good Republican dares offend the likes of Roger Ailes.
