Outrageous Quote of the Week 10/20/07 FOX and Friends Edition

Reported by Chrish - October 22, 2007 -

Absent Bill O'Reilly, top honors last week went to boss-man Roger Ailes, who suffers the same delusions as his number one gabber. Ailes swept the competition with 55% of the vote for saying "The broadcast networks put their opinion in the news and try to pretend that it's not opinion. And some of the cable networks, such as MSNBC, have their opinion people actually anchor the news. We don't do that. We have the separation of church and state."

When you've caught your breath, vote for this week's most outrageous after the jump, all courtesy of the morning madness of FOX and Friends:

Option A: "There's a story in the New York Post saying that she allegedly drank 14 Bloody Marys and had a problem afterwards." Gretchen Carlson spreading News Corp. sister company rumors about radio host Randi Rhodes, FOX and Friends 10/18/07

Option B: "US authorities could not begin a search for (the kidnapped soldiers) for ten and a half hours, until they got word from lawyers that it was OK to wiretap!" "And they said that they had to wait to get the FISA laws to allow them to tap into communications that they believed was (sic) Al Qaeda-related..." "Sure, the search teams are ready to go out and find him, look for him, but the commanding officer said 'Hold on, because of the FISA laws, we're gonna have to call the lawyers." The trio on FOX and Friends, Carlson, Kilmeade, and Doocy, misrepresenting FISA law 10/15/07

Option C: "We're brainwashing our children. They're going to the Gore movie and being fed all this. It's ridiculous." Climate change skeptic Dr. William Gray on FOX and Friends, 10/15/07

Option D: "Well, the Nobel Peace Prize, that's, five Norwegian politicians can give out what they want, and I have no problem with that. My problem is with his movie and this religious-like campaign about, we must all go back to the stone-age because we're evil because we're creating global warming." John Stossel, FOX and Friends, 10/19/07

Option E: "We're not going to leave Iraq, because if we leave Iraq, then Iran will move in. This war cannot be ended by the United States 'cause we didn't start it. We were attacked. War has been declared on us." David Horowitz conflating Iraq and 9/11, FOX and Friends 10/18/07
