FOX News Decides Obama's "Lose Lips" Make Him Sound Not Ready For Prime Time

Reported by Ellen - August 5, 2007 -

In a mockery of their "We report, you decide" motto, Sean Hannity read an obviously scripted teaser on Friday night's (8/3/07) Hannity & Colmes for an upcoming discussion about Barack Obama's comments about fighting terrorism in Pakistan. "Barack Obama, well, he's sounding like he's not ready for prime time," Hannity said. In another teaser for the same discussion, the banner on the screen read, "Lose lips?" as Alan Colmes asked whether Obama's comments would "help or hurt his chances at the polls and the presidency." With video.

Significantly, FOX was not interested in highlighting Obama's actual ideas on fighting terrorism, only in their effects on his candidacy... and conveying the message that the answer is a negative.
