Outrageous Quote of the Week - Week of February 19th

Reported by Janie - February 26, 2007 -

Brit Hume took home last week's Outrageous Quote of the Week with 48% of the vote for his smear against Rep. John Murtha:

"It's time a few things be said about him...This guy is long past the day when he had anything but the foggiest awareness of what the heck is going on in the world." - 2/18/07

For this week's selection, take a look below the jump!

Option A: Bill O'Reilly: "Any organization with power in this country conducting themselves the way NBC News is conducting itself, has to be, has to be exposed, Michelle, and I'll tell you why. We have a very important presidential election coming up. If you have one network, powerful network, rooting for the Democrats to win, which NBC News clearly is, you have to put that on the table, so everybody knows. Am I wrong?"

Michelle Malkin: "You're absolutely right. Look, and if there are networks out there that lean one way or the other, or certain programs that go one or the other, and they're transparent about it and open about it, that's one thing. But if you're going to wear this mantle of objectivity and neutrality leading up to the 2008 campaign and that's not what you're selling your viewers, well they're going to do exactly what viewers have been doing - bolting...."

BOR: "Well, I just wanted to be upfront about it." - "The O'Reilly Factor", 2/19/07

Option B: Hillary's wish list is disastrous ... Her latest strategy is to weigh down our soldiers with so much body armor they won't be able to move." - Mike Ozanian, discussing Hillary Clinton's military strategy, Forbes on FOX, 2/24/07

Option C: "Isn't it better to create an alternate universe where perverts and arsonists and people who belong to Moveon.org, can go and do these things without causing any problems?" - Greg Gutfeld, "Red Eye", 2/22/07

Option D: “Look, Al Qaeda, they could bring a nuke into this country and kill a hundred thousand people with a well-placed nuke somewhere, OK? We would recover from that. It would be a terrible tragedy but the teachers unions in this country can destroy a generation...Well, they are destroying a generation. They’re MUCH more dangerous. You know, we worry about Al Qaeda, and we should, but at the same time, let’s not let the teachers’ unions escape.” - Neil Boortz, "Hannity & Colmes", 2/20/07

Option E: "What are some of the key things? So, you're talking about securing borders with Syria and Iran, which is kind of interesting, because that does say, you know, what we've pretty much known all along, that the bad guys are coming from another part of the world." - Greg Gutfeld claiming the Iraqi insurgency is not "homegrown", "Red Eye", 2/21/07
