Outrageous Quote of the Week @ June 16, 2007

Reported by Chrish - June 18, 2007 -

Last week's winner in a landslide (57%) was Bill O'Reilly, who said

"Now apparently The Times isn't real concerned about Muslim guys allegedly trying to set up another 9/11. ...This is not the Colbert Report. This is The Factor and this is the fact. On page one, The New York Times instead of the JFK terror arrests we saw some Indian people with bricks."
while showing the top half only of Sunday New York Times, obscuring from viewers the headline beneath the fold that read "4 Charged in bomb plot at Kennedy Airport."

Click on over for this week's offerings.

Option A: "It almost seems imperative that we act (against Iran) at some point or we will regret that we missed this opportunity." Sean Hannity on 6/14/07 Hannity & Colmes.

Option B: "I decided some time ago I'm just not going to talk about this [Iraq war] anymore because I want those troops to have a chance to win even if they have to shoot some people I don't think need being shot at any given moment. But even if they have to do things that people here don't want them to do in order to win - just leave them alone, let them win. Having said that, and studiously trying to pay attention to other things that attract our attention, like the thought of Paris Hilton on a jail toilet without a door worried about whether someone is going to take a picture..." John Gibson on FOX News Radio, 6/13/07, defensive over study showing FOX gives least coverage to war in Iraq.

Option C: "But we don't do the carnage du jour. We don't highlight every terrorist attack because we learn nothing from that. And that's exactly what the terrorists want us to do. I mean, come on, does another bombing in Tikrit mean anything other than war is hell? No, it does not."

"I'm not buying it. ... There's no news value to it, Colonel (David Hunt). There's just no news value to it. Just trust me on this." Bill O'Reilly TPM 6/13/07 and 6/12/07 Radio Factor, also defensive over study showing FOX gives least coverage to war in Iraq.

Option D: "What liberals have done to kids in this society isn't crazy, it's criminal." Bernard Goldberg on 6/12/07 Hannity & Colmes.

Option E: JONATHAN HOENIG, founder, CapitalistPig.com: "Let me ask you this. Would any of the very accomplished, successful women on our panel - would any of you want to be President? Is that something any of you aspire to? The answer's 'no.' And I think that's the point, you know, I mean, what does this mean for Hillary ... and I tell ya' I just - I don't think any rational woman would ever want to be President. That's what's still mystifying me about Hillary."

CHERYL CASONE, FOX News Business Correspondent: "Are you saying you don't think a woman can be President?"

HOENIG: "No. Of course. It's not a question of her talent or her ability. I just think that - you know, being President - being Commander-in-Chief of all men - for me it goes against a woman's basic value of hero worship." Cashin In, 6/16/07.
