In Albuquerque, NM, Michael Steele Says He’s In Arizona

Michael Steele visited Greta Van Susteren’s On The Record last night (10/1/10) from the Albuquerque stop of his “Fire Nancy Pelosi” bus tour. As Van Susteren knew and most Americans probably know, Albuquerque is in New Mexico. But Steele twice said he was in Arizona. I’d be willing to cut the guy a break and say that he’s probably fatigued and a bit befuddled from traveling. But considering that Bill O’Reilly made fun of Al Franken as a pinhead that same night for wrongly saying Sen. Tom Udall was from Utah, instead of New Mexico, I couldn’t let the error go unmentioned.

Fox News Discusses How Liberals “Plan To Ruin Your Life”

It’s funny how those “fair and balanced” folks at Fox News always manage to tip the scales so that the hate mongering or fear mongering needle always points to liberals. On last night’s Hannity (7/26/10), Sean Hannity first interviewed an author of a book subtitled “7 Ways Liberals Plan To Ruin Your Life.” Need I add that “Great American” Hannity agreed wholeheartedly with everything the author said? Then, in a following segment, Hannity complained about Democratic fear mongering. His former Miss America guest agreed, attacked the Democrats a little further and then, later in the same segment, engaged in a little fear mongering of her own.

Jason Mattera So Unprofessional He Makes Bill O’Reilly Side With Al Franken

I know it’s a crowded field but my vote for biggest conservative lout in the world goes, hands down, to Jason Mattera. How big a lout is he? Big enough that he prompted Bill O’Reilly to do the unthinkable: chastise Mattera for his obnoxious treatment of Sen. Al Franken – Al Franken! - O’Reilly’s arch enemy. With video.

Tammy Bruce on The O'Reilly Factor: ACORN is the Democrats' . . . Watergate?

“Are we overdoing the ACORN deal?” O’Reilly queried last night (10/6/09) on The O’Reilly Factor, before introducing Fox News analyst Tammy “Michelle Obama is Trash in the White House” Bruce and “radio talk show star” Leslie Marshall. Typical day in the life of Fox-News-Targets-ACORN – well, except Bruce compared ACORN’s handful of Mickey Mouse voter registrations with Watergate and thinks Eric Holder should investigate ACORN instead of the CIA and torture. Guess it’s pretty close to Halloween – Sean Hannity’s going as Glenn Beck and Bruce is going as Michele Bachmann. With video.

O’Reilly Wants Gov. Pawlenty To Investigate Whether ACORN Stole Election For Franken

On Thursday’s O’Reilly Factor (10/1/09), guest Laura Ingraham baselessly suggested that ACORN had helped steal the Minnesota Senate election for Al Franken. She had absolutely no evidence that it had happened. In fact, Norm Coleman, Franken’s opponent, who had challenged the vote count, specifically told the Minnesota Supreme Court he was not making any allegations of voter fraud. Nevertheless, O’Reilly said he was going to contact Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty and ask him to investigate. With video.
