During Her Speech About “Traditional Marriage,” Fox Displays Large Photo Of Miss California In A Bikini

Reported by Ellen - May 1, 2009 -

Oh, those family values folks at Fox News! On yesterday's (4/30/09) Live Desk, Trace Gallagher and Julie Banderas were all agog over the prospect of Miss California, Carrie Prejean, speaking at the National Press Club on behalf of the conservative National Organization for Marriage. But Fox was obviously more interested in her view than her views. Because about a minute after Prejean started speaking, the screen split and a still photo of Prejean in a bikini, about twice the size of the real Prejean, appeared. It remained for the rest of the clip, about two more minutes. With video.

Before Prejean spoke, the banner on the screen read, “Miss CA speaks about supporting traditional marriage.” Fox News called its video “Following her Faith.” But clearly, Fox had something besides marriage and faith on its mind.
