Disparate Coverage Of Conventions On FOX News

Reported by Ellen - September 4, 2008 -

Hannity & Colmes spent almost the entire show last night (9/4/08), the last night of the Republican Convention, airing floor speeches pretty much in their entirety. The show even ended early to make time for more speechifying. That definitely did not happen during the Democratic Convention.

On the last night of the Democratic convention, FNC aired Barack Obama's speech and perhaps (my memory is cloudy here) Al Gore's in their entirety. There was at least one guest, none other than Karl Rove. But for the last night of the Republican convention, H&C had no guests, just Republican speeches. FOX News aired Senator Lindsey Graham, Former Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge along with Cindy McCain and, of course, John McCain.

Not so fair and balanced but not very surprising.
