“Fair And Balanced” Hannity & Colmes Includes No Obama Supporters In Any Of Six Segments Devoted To His Speech On Race
Reported by Ellen - March 18, 2008 -
It was another Obama lynching party on Hannity & Colmes tonight (3/18/08). All but one of the segments was devoted to Obama’s speech earlier today. Yet “fair and balanced” FOX News included only Obama critics in its line up of five guests, four of whom were Republicans.
The guest list for the six segments of the show devoted to Obama’s speech was as follows: Newt Gingrich got two segments without an opposing guest. Dick Morris got one segment without an opposing guest. Frank Luntz got two segments without an opposing guest. All three are Republicans. The only segment to include a non-Republican was one that also included a Republican: Michael Steele paired with Earl Ofari Hutchinson. I didn’t find anything to indicate Hutchinson’s political affiliation but while he appears to be a liberal, one look at his columns reveals that he is obviously an Obama critic.
The fact that White supremacist sympathizer Sean Hannity felt the need to stack the deck to such a degree indicates that he must be very worried we may have a black man in the White House by this time next year.
