FOX News Is Ignoring Reports About Palin's Extramarital Affair

When the National Enquirer broke the news a few months ago about John Edwards' extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter, there was a steady stream of stories and discussions about it on FOX News although Edwards was no longer a candidate by then.

FOX Hypes Baseless Speculation About Edwards

“Real journalism” FOX News teased yet another segment about John Edwards the other night (8/14/08) with Sean Hannity saying, “Coming up next, a United States senator says she thinks in fact John Edwards IS (his emphasis) the father of his former mistress’ baby.” You might think this senator had some real knowledge about the issue.

O'Reilly Promotes Doubt About Michelle Obama

Most O"Reilly viewers consider the weekly body language segment to be entertaining fluff with distinct partisan overtones. When Republicans are analyzed by Reiman the innuendo is rarely damaging but it is pretty safe to say that O'Reilly's choice of Democrats for this segment are usually people he wants viewers to doubt. Last night's lineup included George Bush, Michelle Obama and John Edwards. George Bush's analysis was amusing and complimentary and the selection of Edwards not surprising. However, why did he include Michelle Obama?
