Republican Monday on Fox News Live

Reported by Donna - June 19, 2006

Today on Fox News Live with Bill Hemmer (12 - 1 p.m.) you would have thought it was Republican Monday if you would have seen the way the show was set up.

Amid a myriad of Fox News Alerts about the floods in Houston, the show was done to showcase the Republican ideal - fear mongoring and their talking points.

A few times it was pointed out (with a map) showing how North Korea could hit the U.S. with missiles.

Greg Kelly sounding like he was reading said that Iran could be a great threat to people everywhere.

Bush called the Iranian government the Iranian Regime.

It's reported that Tony Snow said we have had a number of victories on the war on terror.

It's reported that Osama is on the run but we got Zarqawi.

Senate Democrats want a timeline on the withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Who is the guest? One only, Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, (R-Texas). No opposing view.

Iowa first when it comes to becoming president - talked about all the Republican candidates who showed up there this weekend. Note that McCain and Frist didn't attend.

Talking about an upcoming segment Hemmer said, "Ding Dong Zarqawi is dead" and the segment question, 'Is Al Qaeda falling apart?'

Al Qaeda called off a a cyanide attack set for NYC. It's noted that we haven't been hit since 9/11 but also noted that not all of the attacks can be stopped.

Segment is done with the question, 'Is Al Qaeda falling apart' since we took out Zarqawi and had over 400 operations in the past couple of weeks.

A segment on John Murtha (without John Murtha although Hemmer said they had tried calling him and he didn't return their calls) with the person who is running against him, Diana Irey. We had several minutes of attack John Murtha with no one to give an opposing view.

Comments: The whole hour was concentrated on Fox News Alerts and set up to give a favorable slant to the Republican party with a little fear mongoring thrown in to keep the pupulace afraid. The message, be afraid, be very afraid, but only the Republicans can take care of you.
