The Words, "Libby Trial," Never Pass Greta Van Susteren's Lips

Reported by Melanie - March 6, 2007 -

On May 8, 2003, Rupert Murdoch, the owner of News Corp., Fox's parent company, testified before Congress in his bid to gain approval for News Corps' purchase of a controlling interest in the parent company of DIRECTV. During the question and answer period after his formal testimony, Murdoch said,

We are bringing diversity of opinion. We are -- there is a diversity of opinion on Fox News. You may disagree with that. We have many liberals there -- many liberals invited. We have liberal commentators and we have conservative ones.

Maxine Waters:

Who are your liberal commentators?

Murdoch:

Ah, Alan Colmes, for one. Um, Greta Van Susteren. Um, you know, it's in the eye of the beholder I guess.

On January 22, 2007, the jury in the "Scooter" Libby trial was seated. At no time, between that day and today, March 6, 2007, when the Libby verdict was handed down, did Fox's high profile legal anchor, Greta Van Susteren, host of "On the Record," -- and one of its purported "liberals" -- utter the words "Libby trial."

This is what Fox News and Greta Van Susteren deemed to be more important. (Note: The wording of the topics listed below was, in almost all cases, taken from the chyrons displayed at the bottom of Fox's screen.)

January 22, 2007:

- Shawn Hornbeck
- Missing Purdue University student, Wade Steffey

- Jerry White, wanted as a suspect in the kidnapping of his girlfriend and her four children.
- "Behind the Record," a handy cam segment about VanSusteren's crew renting a Humvee while on assignment in Missouri

Comment: On the Record's website changes from time to time but one of the blurbs that rotates there says, "Nothing gets by Greta! From the latest breaking news to hard-hitting interviews, 'On the Record' is the only place for fair and balanced coverage." Nothing gets by Greta? It looks to me like an awful lot gets by Greta and that her lack of coverage of the "latest breaking news" is anything but "fair and balanced."
