Wishful Thinking 101: FOX Reporter Misspeaks During Segment about Democrats' Tough Stance on Iraq Funding

Reported by Marie Therese - November 21, 2007 -

During the 11-20-07 edition of Special Report, anchor Brit Hume used the requisite "President pardons the White House turkey" story as a wraparound for a report discussing what appears to be an increasingly determined Democratic leadership, finally willing to take on the White House over the question of troop withdrawals from Iraq. Of course, FOX reporter Bret Baier just couldn't resist implying that the Democrats are playing a game of "turkey" - er - chicken with the President. Representatives David Obey (D-WI) and John Murtha (D-PA) gave a press conference in which they indicated that the Democrats plan to stand firm on their demand that the President sign an Iran supplemental appropriations bill that requires a timetable for withdrawing the troops from Iraq. Commentary embedded in video below the fold.
