FOX News' Harris Faulkner and Steve Centanni Adopt Bush's Terminology As Their Own

Reported by Ellen - May 17, 2006

During the Hannity & Colmes news break just past, both FOX News anchor Harris Faulkner and reporter Steve Centanni adopted the Bush-preferred terminology for spying on Americans - terrorism surveillance program.

At 9:30 ET, Faulkner announced, "Lawmakers preparing for key hearings on the man chosen to head the CIA after getting briefed on the NSA's terror surveillance program." (my emphasis) For extra reinforcement, "Homeland SECURITY" appeared next to her at the top of the screen.

Next, national correspondent Steve Centanni reported "The president's nominee for CIA director faces Senate questioning tomorrow (Hmm, wonder if H&C will have time to cover it, given all the breaking news about the Duke rape case) and the White House was hoping to pave the way by providing expanded briefings on controversial NSA programs. General Keith Alexander held the sessions earlier today on Capitol Hill. Until now, only select members of Congress got full details of NSA anti-terror surveillance programs." (my emphasis)

Ironically, the news break arrived immediately after a Verizon commercial sang, "I'll be there for you."
