Outrageous Quote of (two) weeks, 4/5/08

Reported by Chrish - April 6, 2008 -

Sean Hannity won in an absolute avalanche for his fearmongering speculation "What if (Obama) deep down in his heart thinks like (his controversial pastor) Wright?... Is that dangerous for this country? I think that would be dan… That would mean we would have, if he agreed with Wright and I don't know that does, but if he did, that would mean a racist and an anti-Semite would be president of the United States." We've got a few more whoppers for you to choose from after the jump.

Option A: "Am I wrong to suggest you're gonna say you think Hillary's gotten a pass from the media in general during this campaign?"
"No, I'm not gonna say that during this campaign. I'm gonna say for the last 15 years." Alan Colmes to Brent Bozell, Hannity & Colmes 3/25/08

Option B: "If (Clinton) were a Republican, she'd actually go up in the polls… because people assume that Republicans are wealthier than Democrats." Frank Luntz remarking on Clinton tax returns, Hannity and Colmes, 4/4/08

Option C: "Clinton, it seems, had one of his Vesuvius eruptions after a delegate complained about former Clinton campaign manager James Carville’s calling New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson "Judas" for endorsing Barack Obama." Straight newsman Brit Hume, Special Report, 4/2/08

Option D: "Economy sees good job growth." On the day 80,000 March job loss reported, headline on "managing editor of business news" Neil Cavuto's webpage linking to November 2007 report. 4/5/08

Option E: "It's very hard to be neutral. People laugh at us because we call ourselves 'Fair and Balanced.' Fact is, CNN, who's always been extremely liberal, never had a Republican or conservative voice on it. The only difference is that we have equal voices on both sides but that seems to have upset a lot of liberals. ... The more voices the better." Rupert Murdoch at Georgetown University's Gaston Hall,

Option F: “She’s not obsessed with waterboarding and stopping waterboarding and given the glint in her eye, I think she’d like torturing them. Have you seen that woman give a speech? I think she would enjoy torturing them in Guantanamo.” Ann Coulter about Hillary Clinton, Hannity and Comes, 4/3/08
