Howard Dean Takes A Back Seat To Natalee Holloway on Hannity & Colmes

Reported by Ellen - March 3, 2006

Last night (3/2/06), Alan Colmes did a solo interview with Howard Dean, chairman of the Democratic National Committee, on Hannity & Colmes. Whenever Ken Mehlman, Dean’s Republican counterpart, is on the show, he appears on one of the early segments, if not the first. But Dean’s interview was the second-to-last segment, well behind the zillionth discussion on Natalee Holloway. Another example of FOX News' "real journalism, fair and balanced."

Greta Van Susteren was there for the second night in a row, hyping her interview with Holloway-case suspect, Joran Van Der Sloot. Greta got 6 ½ minutes to yammer about such burning questions as whether the red blotches that appeared on Van Der Sloot’s face were the result of guilt or just a regular case of nerves.

Howard Dean got 4 ½ minutes to talk about the Katrina tape, port security, Iraq and the upcoming mid-term elections. He refused to speculate on whether Democrats would take back the House or Senate (which tells me he doesn’t think so) and then added that he expected Democrats would pick up 5-7 governorships. Frankly, I was disappointed that Dean didn’t face down Hannity but it was still a refreshing change from the usual H&C roster of guests.

Greta will be back again tonight to give us her final impressions of the Van Der Sloot interview.
