"Common" Rapper Controversy More Important Than Gingrich's Presidential Campaign Launch On Fox

Reported by Ellen - May 12, 2011 -

Ruh-roh! While Fox gave a big helping PR hand to Newt Gingrich's presidential bid last night (5/11/11), there are a few signs that Fox News' endorsement of Gingrich might not be quite as full-throated as it would seem.

For one thing, FoxNews.com only has two of the three segments of Hannity's interview with Gingrich posted right now - even though it long ago posted videos from On The Record, the show that airs after Hannity. In fact, only the first segment is included in the "featured videos" section of its video page.

Compare the two videos of Gingrich to the four about the rapper "Common" going to the White House, as seen on the Hannity video page.

And speaking of Common, that hypocritical "controversy" is the top story on Fox Nation - and there isn't even a mention of ol' "Winning the Future" (the right way!) Newt. You can see my search box at the top of the screen grab.

Not good signs for Mr. Speaker.
