Fox on Tragedy In Pakistan - Does U.S. Help Have To Be Quantified?

Reported by Donna - October 10, 2005

Today on Studio B with Shepard Smith we were advised that the president had sent an initial package of 50 million dollars in aid to Pakistan, a major ally in the war on terror. The 'most important allies' (or slight variation) remark came three times in the hour long show.

At approximately 3:02 p.m. Smith reported that the United States had offered, in an initial package, 50 milliion dollars and air support (1 cargo plane and several helicopters) to Pakistan, a major ally in the war on terror. At around 3:34 p.m. Shepard Smith reported that the U.S. had given 50 million and air support to Pakistan, a key ally in the war on terror. At about 3:36 Greg Kelly talked about the president pledging 50 million and air support to Pakistan, an important ally in the war on terror.

Comment: Sounds like a talking points memo went out this morning. It almost sounded like a message was sent out, 'see, we're helping them, our important ally in the war on terror.'
