Fox Guest Sends Cavuto Greetings from Rush Limbaugh

Reported by Melanie - January 30, 2006

Last week the Drudge Report carried a story about a Seattle, Washington minister named Ken Hutcherson, of the Antioch Bible Church, who has launched a boycott of Seattle-area companies, such as Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard, who favor civil rights legislation barring discrimination against gays and lesbians. In an attempt to gain support and publicity for his project, Hutcherson has cozied up to the likes of Ralph Reed (formerly of the Christian Coalition), James Dobson (of Focus on the Family), and Rush Limbaugh. Hutcherson's connections seem to be working.

Today (January 30, 2006), Fox News gave Hutcherson a nationally televised platform from which to promote his cause.

Hutcherson was a guest on Fox's "business news" program, Your World w/Neil Cavuto. The title of the segment was: "Pastor Tries to Tank Stocks of Co's Supporting Gay Rights Bill." Immediately after Cavuto introduced him and asked why he was "doing this,' Hutcherson said, "Ah, well, before I get into that Neil, I wanted to tell you why I came on your show. That is, a great friend of mine, Rush Limbaugh, told me to tell you 'hello' and I should come on."

Comment: As far as I can tell, Hutcherson launched this new crusade sometime between January 16 and January 19. Here we are, just days later and Hutcherson's on the "fair and balanced" channel. It pays to have connections, doesn't it? What a pipeline.
