Bill Hemmer Toes The Republican Line More Every Day On Fox

Reported by Donna - May 11, 2006

Yesterday on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer he spoke about a 'study' that said the efforts of the Democratic Party to present itself as the party of the middle class was not working. He had two guests, former Texas Congressman, Martin Frost (D-Texas) who authored the study and Republican stategist, Vin Webber.

This was Hemmer's introduction: "Democrats have long touted themselves at the party of the middle class but a new sutdy said their efforts may be falling flat."

A big thank you to reader, Melanie, who passed this story along to us - thanks, Melanie!

Frost said that the Democrats were in pretty good shape on most issues they just needed to get more optimistic about the economy and National Security. (Comment: Which sound like Republican talking points to me)

During the segment they split the screen for the following bulletin points:

Dems Challenge (Notice they're called Dems, so the Republicans should be Repubs, no?)

Self Proclaimed "Middle Class Party" (Note the placement of quotation marks)

Study: DNC Failing To Reach Voters

Another half screen bullet point:

Kerry Lost Middle Class Votes in 04

Gore Lost Middle Class Votes in 00

Another:

Study Faults DNC Wealth Attacks

Study: DNC Downplaying the Economy

Two for the Repubs:

Tax Cut Deal

Deal is 5 yr 70 Bil Tax Package

GOP Hopes To Pass Deal Quickly

And:

GOP: Deal Crucial To Economy

Dems: Cuts Will Benefit Wealthy

Hemmer consistently interrupted the Democratic guest and even had the nerve at the end of the segment to say that the 70 billion dollars in tax cuts were for the middle class.

Comments: Hemmer may have been laying low, but he made his biased debut in this segment. The constant interruptions, the GOP talking points, the bulletin points calling the Democratic Party 'Dems' and the Republican Party 'GOP?"
