Molly Henneberg Leaves Out A Key Fact About Condoleezza Rice’s Aborted Trip

Reported by Ellen - July 31, 2006 -

FOX News reporter “Happy Hurricane” Molly Henneberg tried to turn Condoleezza Rice’s aborted Middle East trip into a happy cancellation by reporting only the official US version of the termination.

In a news break during last night’s special edition of Hannity & Colmes (7/30/06), Henneberg reported, “Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice met with Israeli officials today and was planning to meet with the Lebanese Prime Minister but after the strike in Qana, she decided to postpone that part of her trip.”

What Henneberg didn’t say is that the Lebanese claim that they are the ones who called off the meeting. In an article called Not Welcome in Lebanon, Rice Heads Home Monday, Reuters reported, “Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora said he did not want her to come to his country for planned meetings on Sunday, saying that after Israel's air strike, he could not hold any talks on resolving the crisis before an immediate ceasefire.”
