Video: Brit Hume reports on Jamilgate

posted at 9:59 am on January 3, 2007 by Allahpundit

Not the first time he’s covered a blog-driven media scandal, and certainly not the first time that Fox has.

Worth noting: the Grapevine segment that immediately followed this was an item on Ahmadinejad’s advisor accusing Hitler of being Jewish. Which means it’s time to wonder once again: does Brit’s Grapevine writer read HA?

Brit, John Gibson and Julie Banderas are the only reasons left to watch Fox…The egos of the others are to much to stomach.

The trouble with this is if you talk to a liberal about it, you get the hands over the ears, “la-la-la, I can’t hear you!” treatment.

Sort of like AP’s response.

Since my Hitler was a Jew post went up later last night, he certainly didn’t get it from me. Probably here or MEMRI.

I’d humbly add another good reason to watch FNC is Michelle’s weekly appearance.

Too bad fox is the only one not circling the wagons. Now that it’s been on fox

Brit Hume is head-and-shoulders above any other serious newscaster in the business today. More clarity and common sense than anyone in the anchor chair in my lifetime.

It helps that he sees it my way, I suppose…

Michelle has the brains and the style to carry off a major chair like that, too, but the guy-girl thing would make it hard difficult for most of us to watch critically. Simply too beautiful for tv.

Jane, do you ladies have this problem with … uh … any of the slugs on tv?

Is it any wonder that the AP has voted president Bush the “worst of 2006″ http://www.rr.com/flash/index.cfm

The AP appears to be part of an active insurgency working to discredit and undermine the government of the United States.

Brit is soothing.

Jamil is actually John Conyers

Those in the know come here for insightful reporting and commentary.

Doc Dentons,

I’d add Neil Cavuto and Megyn Kendall to your list.

mikeyboss on January 3, 2007 at 12:33 PM

Alright Fox! Let us hope that they continue coverage on this issue. In my opinion, Fox would be doing an invaluable service by questioning “reporting” by MSM components that seem to be more interested in their own political agenda than facts.

rplat on January 3, 2007 at 11:09 AM

They (and the rest of the MSM) are the true worldwide insurgency. Without them, the Iraqi insurgency, Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah, etc., wouldn’t stand a chance.

Rick on January 3, 2007 at 12:47 PM

Mikeyboss: Don’t get much of a chance to watch Neil but Dagen McDowell lives just down the hall from me…very nice person. Was basically referring to O’Reilly and Hannity and some of the morning crew. Megyn is a fox on Fox.

Two Words: Kiran Chetry.

The difference between News Reporters and News Makers.

Kini on January 3, 2007 at 2:38 PM

Doc Dentons:

Actually that’d be a good idea for an ad campaign. Give Meg Kendall and Michelle a show together, and kick it off with the tag line “Putting the fox in Fox News.” I don’t know any redblooded American male who’d miss that. (No offense to Michelle or Meg, of course.)

mikeomatic on January 3, 2007 at 2:52 PM

Mikeomatic…I like the way you think…I forgot to mention that Dagen is married to Jonas Max…also a nice person.

Agreed. As I commented on the most recent NYT scandal, their (MSM) singleminded attempts to destroy any impression of success that could favor this administration, by reporting only the bad news, amount to acts of war against this nation. One needn’t fire a weapon to be at war, and the seditious behavior of many in the socialist press are in fact illegal, and ought to be punished.
