FOX Trying To Keep Cynthia MCKinney Story Alive

Reported by Deborah - April 8, 2006

Cynthia MCKinney has apologized for the incident with Capitol Hill Security but there's no way that FOX will let this great diversionary story slip away. Tonight on Big Story Primetime, Megyn Kendall interviewed a a former security staffer on the Hill who claims he had a physical confrontation with MCKinney in 1998. This was followed with yet another debate about MCKinney's behavior. 4/8/06

Rick Stafford told Kendall in 1998 he was instructed to keep a certain meeting limited to "members only" adding that notification had been sent to everyone about it. Stafford claimed that MCKinney showed up with a friend and a small child wanting access to the meeting so he blocked the doorway with his arm. According to Stafford, MCKinney grabbed and pushed his arm and said derogatory things to him but he couldn't remember what she said. Kendall accepted his story without question.

Then Michael Barrone and Michael Massie appeared to discuss the issue again even though there is nothing left to say at this point. Massie got the first word, last word and much of the in between. He said he was appalled by MCKinney's behavior which sends a dangerous message to children about respect for authority.

Barrone thought that MCKinney showed courage with her apology. Kendall chimed in that calling her apology courageous was a "stretch." Masie continued to harp on MCKinney's disrespect of authority adding that she acts "above the law" He got the last word with "If she had worn her congressional pin instead of a chip on her shoulder..."
Kendall ended the segment while Barrone was trying to to object and respond.

comment: Of course there was nothing new here. It was just more of the same stuff we've been hearing all week on FOX about MCKinney. So now this new guy will provide fuel for at least the weekend but I'm sure FOX is busy searching for some new MCKinney victims to take the heat off Republicans this week.
