Van Susteren Rescues Palin From Saying She'd Like To Lynch Sandusky

Is there a single Republican presidential candidate out there who is interested in the advice of Sarah Palin? I doubt it. I have yet to hear any of them even mention her name. But don’t worry, Sarah. You’ll always have Greta Van Susteren. She trotted out Palin for more than 16 minutes to offer her special brand of insight into each candidacy. Later, Van Susteren "corrected" Palin when she indicated she'd like to lynch former coach Jerry Sandusky.

Greta Van Susteren To Herman Cain: You Were Almost Like A Stalker

There were two takeaway moments in Greta Van Susteren’s very lengthy interview with Gloria Cain tonight: The first takeaway moment was Mrs. Cain’s less than enthusiastic, not exactly unqualified, “I think he would” in response to Van Susteren asking if Herman Cain would be a good president. Later, after Gloria Cain detailed Herman’s dogged pursuit of her when she was not interested in him, Van Susteren said to Cain, “You’re almost like a stalker to her.” I have a feeling Van Susteren would prefer to take that comment back.

How Hannity "Corrected" Cain's Smear Against Harassment Accuser And Politico

Last week, we posted about the wildly incorrect accusation made on the Hannity show by Herman Cain spokesman Mark Block - that one of the women accusing Cain of sexual harassment was the mother of a Politico reporter. Fox News had said it would correct the claim on the air. Whether they did or not depends on what your definition of a "correction" is.

Monica Crowley: Americans Are Sick Of Attack Politics (But Pay No Attention To My Record Of Attack Politics)

Monica Crowley appeared on Hannity last Wednesday (11/9/11) and did her part to defend Herman Cain by attacking the so-called liberal media for having the nerve to ask him a debate question about allegations of sexual harassment against him – as if she wouldn’t be up in arms if a moderator had failed to ask the same question of a liberal candidate had he or she been in that position. Crowley said smugly, “At large, the American people are sick of political correctness and they’re sick of attack politics.” Oh, really? Then I’m looking forward to a new and improved Monica Crowley. Because the one I know has always reveled in attack politics.

Herman Cain Shrugs Off His Anita Hill Joke: Herman Is Going To Be Herman!

They must be getting dizzy over at Fox News trying to keep track of all the Republican rehab they’ve been dishing out lately. But Friday (11/11/11), on the heels of Rick Perry’s debate do-over, Herman Cain got almost 25 minutes of friendliness from Your World. Host Neil Cavuto set the tone by gushing in his introduction, “The Cain train full speed ahead! …Herman still hopping!” B-roll footage showed people cheering for Cain. But not even Cavuto could figure out a way to rehab Cain’s latest joke about Anita Hill – in which he was wracked with laughter over a supporter's crack that Hill was “coming out” - after which Cain jokingly asked, “Is she going to endorse me?” Cavuto gently suggested that Cain might want to “dial back” his humor a bit but showing real sensitivity toward women – as opposed to just acting presidential - never entered the equation.
