FOX & Friends' Steve Doocy Uses Super Bowl Coverage to Boost Republican Candidate

Reported by Marie Therese - February 6, 2006

Every now and then, their loyalty to the GOP just gets the better of a FOX News host. The loosely secured mask of impartiality drops and true feelings come to the fore. Unable to contain himself or herself, the FOX News host or analyst breathlessly blurts out their enthusiasm about some Republican issue or candidate. It happened earlier today on FOX & Friends.

During a discussion about the Pittsburgh Steelers' Super Bowl win, in a shining example of non-partisan, impartial "fair and balanced" reportage, co-anchors Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade had the following exchange:

KILMEADE: "I think I saw 20 Sea Hawk fans. This was solid Steelers. And when they said Terry Bradshaw, Lynn Swann and Frank O'Harris and they're dissenting, you thought you were in the middle of Steel Town."

DOOCY: "Absolutely. In fact, I think Lynn Swann won the governor job last night when he came out during that parade of champions and he waved and it was a - whooooossshhhh - he could have - and, of course, he's runnin' for governor in Pennsylvania right now."

Swann, former wide receiver for the Pittsburgh Steelers, is inching closer to becoming the Republican gubernatorial candidate in Pennsylvania. Doocy clearly expressed support not only for Swann to be the GOP nominee, but for his ultimate win in the state's gubernatorial election.
