Gretchen Carlson Promotes Bogus Bertha Lewis White House Visit Story On Fox & Friends

Reported by Priscilla - January 4, 2010 -

Gretchen Carlson is a graduate of Stanford where, one assumes, she learned that information must be properly sourced and vetted before it is used in a report. Thus, one has to question why former Miss America pushed a discredited Andrew Breitbart report which claimed that ACORN’s CEO, Bertha Lewis, recently visited the White House. Fox Nation ran with the smear for three days before taking it down*. But today, pretty in pink Gretchen reported that “ACORN's chief Bertha Lewis got an inside look at the White House just days before those explosive undercover tapes about ACORN were released. Could her relationship with the First Family affect the way the administration ended up viewing those tapes?” Ah, the “explosive” tapes that resulted in a Congressional Committee concluding that ACORN hasn’t violated any federal regulations in the last five years. Gretchen didn’t mention that little detail. Gretchen could have done a simple google to find out that Politico debunked the Bertha Lewis story last week. Oh well, maybe she was just so busy worrying about Rifqa Bary that she forgot about due diligence. I certainly hope so because if that’s not the case, then she lied – and Gretchen is such a good Christian who must know that lying is a sin. Ya think!

*The Fox Nation thread with the Breitbart link seems to have vanished. Entering Bertha Lewis on Fox Nation didn't get any results. Entering Fox Nation Bertha Lewis Visits White House on google didn't yield anything except "page not found." But please feel free to double check my efforts and I will gladly correct my mistake which is something you won't see tomorrow on Fox & Friends. Wonder if Fox Nation saw the News Hounds threads...
