Fox - Alito - He's a Regular Guy (wink, wink, nod, nod)

Reported by Donna - January 9, 2006

Most of today's Studio B with Shepard Smith was taken up by very flattering introductions for Samuel Alito. The only thing that woke me up was when they adjourned the hearing for the day and Megyn Kendall said something that struck me as odd.

She said that it was very important that Alito had said that he was from a 'modest' upbringing. This way, she said, people wouldn't think that he was a conservative elite. Why is this important? Are people planning on having a beer with him?

Comment: I'm not sure how modest Alito's upbringing was, but I wondered if it was the same as Bill O'Reilly's. Remember how O'Reilly said that he was brought up in a modest neighborhood and when he went to college he only had one tuxedo where his friends had several.

Fellow News Hound, Judy, did a post on O'Reilly's modest upbringing, which you can read here. It's a great read, especially today since there's not much to report from Studio B.
