After Heavily Promoting Notre Dame Protests, Fox Admits Obama Received warm Welcome

Reported by Ellen - May 19, 2009 -

Media Matters writes: For months, Fox News heavily promoted the idea that President Obama's commencement address at Notre Dame would spark widespread protests and controversy, but following Obama's address, Chris Wallace reported that Obama "received a very warm welcome from the Notre Dame community."

So much for newly-minted Catholic (and serial adulterer) and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich's prediction that the speech might "accidentally trigger" an awareness of the right to life. Not that Fox, which seems to be serving as his unofficial 2012 campaign HQ, will admit Gingrich has been proven wrong. But somewhere you just know Gingrich, along with his GOP/Fox News colleagues Karl Rove and Roger Ailes, are wringing their hands, griping, "Curses! Foiled again!"
