Fox News Overlooks Kirk Military Service Scandal, Rehashes Blumenthal
Reported by Ellen - June 2, 2010 -
I watched three hours of Fox News programming last night: The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity and On The Record and not one mentioned the news that Republican Illinois Senate candidate Mark Kirk had been found not just to misspeak about his military service but to state in his official biography that he had won an award for Navy Intelligence Officer of the Year (I did see it mentioned on Special Report). Democratic Connecticut Senate candidate Richard Blumenthal, however, misspoke about having served in Viet Nam and it was almost a cause celebre on Fox. But somehow, Sean Hannity found time to work in another swipe at Blumenthal.
