Video: Hot Air headline/comment gets read on Fox & Friends

posted at 1:21 pm on November 13, 2007 by Bryan

Laura Ingraham’s appearance on The View Monday is still generating buzz. Matched up against four liberals, the Ingrahammer more than held her own. My opinion: She rocked. On Fox & Friends this morning, the hosts chatted about it and Steve Doocy read a “blog comment.” Though he didn’t name the blog, it was this one, and the comment was:

Talk about the Pope conducting mass in Satan’s den

William Amos on November 12, 2007 at 2:06 PM

What makes it even better is that that comment was a response to one of Allahpundit’s headlines. AP, a Mets fan and Yankee hater, headlined this story this way:

Pope to celebrate Mass in Satan’s temple

That’s probably more detail than you needed, but I think it’s cool. From a headline to a comment to Fox & Friends. Hat tips to Allahpundit and William Amos.

Here’s the video.

What?!? Nothing about my “boots” comment? Damn, Doocy, what do I pay you for??

I wondered this morning if they used our post as a peg for the segment because the segment title at the end there is similar to our headline, “Laura Ingraham Clashes with Whoopi, Behar.” Granted, it’s fairly generic, but the same verb and the same mismatched rendering of Whoopi’s first name and Joy’s surname made me notice.

Allahpundit on November 13, 2007 at 1:26 PM

Yaa I made the BIG TIME ! heh

William Amos on November 13, 2007 at 1:27 PM

I guess my comments need to be wittier to make the cut, eh?

/I’m out o’ luck there

Bob's Kid on November 13, 2007 at 1:27 PM

I guess everybody knows what blog to go to when trying to find something about “The View” :)

William Amos – Top of the World. What would really top it off would be if Olbermann named you “Worst Person In the World” for your comment…

IF that happens then Gore has nothing on me with his Nobel.

A well-oiled right-wing noise machine.

JammieWearingFool on November 13, 2007 at 1:35 PM

You people watch FnF? Seriously? Your DNA evolved for better things than that… ;-)

Ochlan on November 13, 2007 at 1:36 PM

Congrats. Fact is that the only thing that sepperates a few of the commenters here and professional screen writers is access.

We r teh phunny.

I believe there is an opportunity to gazump the writers market right about now ;-)

Ochlan on November 13, 2007 at 1:41 PM

Gutfield has been pretty successful cultivating talking points and one-liners from the comments on his blog.

It kinda sucks though because he’s a glory hog. Who would have thought that a fatter version of John Faverau could get some air-time?

natesnake on November 13, 2007 at 1:42 PM

Might need a new gig. My supervisor told me off last friday and I wasnt too happy with him and would start to look for a new job.

Found out monday he is talking about firing me rather than let me put in my notice geez

William Amos on November 13, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Ochlan on November 13, 2007 at 1:41 PM

Scabs!

Bryan on November 13, 2007 at 1:44 PM

BRILLIANT!

it waS the funniest headline i had read in a while!

zane on November 13, 2007 at 1:44 PM

Not to burst William Amos’ bubble or anything, but isn’t there a writer’s strike on?

Just kidding, WA, you rock

jdpaz on November 13, 2007 at 1:47 PM

William Amos on November 13, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Do you already have an agent?

Rick on November 13, 2007 at 1:47 PM

Sorry about the job situation William.

But at least you have a quote that made CABLE NEWS!

You can always put that on your resume…

Dr. Gecko on November 13, 2007 at 1:47 PM

Scabs!

Bryan on November 13, 2007 at 1:44 PM

So you’re a union guy…

Rick on November 13, 2007 at 1:49 PM

Found out monday he is talking about firing me rather than let me put in my notice geez

Firing may be preferred depending on the severance package (if any). You could always give the firing a positive spin with your next employer.

Just say that you lost the job after your boss glanced over at your junk in the bathroom.

Hater.

natesnake on November 13, 2007 at 1:49 PM

~guess I need to “refresh” a little more often~

jdpaz on November 13, 2007 at 1:49 PM

That’s probably more detail than you needed, but I think it’s cool.

Bryan, you need to take cool lessons. You’re supposed to pretend you didn’t see it, and then when anyone mentions it, you should act annoyed and say, “Fox and Friends? Never seen it.”

saint kansas on November 13, 2007 at 1:51 PM

Scabs!

lol :-)

Gheyest. Strike. Evah.

Ochlan on November 13, 2007 at 1:52 PM

Will give Allah all the credit. Being a Yankees fan I got a kick out of his Pope at Yankee stadium post. It stuck in my mind.

Is why I hang out here between Michelle’s Pragmatic conservativism to Bryan’s articulate stance on issues to Allah’s humor all these combine to make this the best blog out there.

William Amos on November 13, 2007 at 1:53 PM

all these combine to make this the best blog out there.

Ace may take issue with that statement.

natesnake on November 13, 2007 at 1:55 PM

William Amos on November 13, 2007 at 1:43 PM

Perhaps it is time to think about a career in blogging. Looks like your witty enough!

terryannonline on November 13, 2007 at 1:56 PM

saint kansas on November 13, 2007 at 1:51 PM

Would it win me back a couple of cool points to admit that I didn’t see this happen live?

Bryan on November 13, 2007 at 1:57 PM

What’s this red lasso crap thats crashing my browser?

DaveS on November 13, 2007 at 1:58 PM

Amos, at that point, you’ve got nothing to lose. Feel free to go in with “guns blazing” and tell your supervisor how you really feel.

I stood up to my boss yesterday, demanded an apology and let them know what to expect going forward… “a happy, friendly work environment” or we could go negative, and that would not serve in their best interests. My situation was that I was being blamed for something that I have marginal responsibility for, and that the blame needed to be placed directly at my boss’ feet, since they, not I, are ultimately responsible. It was very enjoyable letting my boss hear it, and she tried to wiggle out of it for the first 20-30 mins, but I was right, so therefore there was only one conclusion on her part, she was WRONG. It DOES help that I had the goods on them, though!

Best Tuesday I’ve had in a long damn time!

Califemme on November 13, 2007 at 2:00 PM

William should be added to the iPhone recipient list, as “next in queue.”

Memnon on November 13, 2007 at 2:04 PM

Kudos William Amos!

Kini on November 13, 2007 at 2:06 PM

Ace may take issue with that statement.

He’s too busy write a 1000 word post on vulvodynia.

KelliD on November 13, 2007 at 2:06 PM

What did the writer’s strike hit F&Fs too?

Kahuna on November 13, 2007 at 2:09 PM

He’s too busy write a 1000 word post on vulvodynia.

That, and on breaks, bludgeoning a chained hobo with a toilet plunger.

There’s a fine line between genius and insanity…

natesnake on November 13, 2007 at 2:10 PM

Does anyone have a vid of O’Reilly’s appearance on The View this morning?

RMCS_USN on November 13, 2007 at 2:22 PM

Hey – the more Hot Air influences the culture, the better!

T J Green on November 13, 2007 at 2:30 PM

RMCS_USN on November 13, 2007 at 2:22 PM

I should be here in a couple of hours.

terryannonline on November 13, 2007 at 2:39 PM

News imitating art.

Hening on November 13, 2007 at 2:56 PM

not sure if thats the kind of fame ya want Will but grats!

amend2 on November 13, 2007 at 4:29 PM

Congrats William Amos! I think it’s cool. And HotAir being the blog referenced is neat too (though no credit given whatcha gonnna do?).

wytammic on November 13, 2007 at 6:03 PM

They really do seem like friends, don’t they?

Jim Treacher on November 13, 2007 at 6:50 PM

LOL, that was awesome!

TimboJackson on November 13, 2007 at 8:44 PM

Congratulations to Hot Air and WB! Well done. I am not surprised, Allah does a heck of job attracting attention with his catchy headlines and the comments are always thoughtful and fun.

Now, if we could only get more air time for Michelle the world would be right once again.

Zorro on November 13, 2007 at 8:59 PM

William Amos,excellent,now when does he get his
Hot Air t-shirt and hat,why,because he earned it.Hehe.

…and maybe professional writers can spell better. Or they have editors who can fix their errors for them.

The Monster on November 14, 2007 at 12:41 AM

HotAir is the heat.

I think I just made a new tagline.

The Monster on November 14, 2007 at 12:41 AM

Boy, you busted me real good. I deserved it. Spelling has never been my strong suit. It’s that whole left-brain/right-brain thing. Granted I scored 144 IQ in the 4th grade, but still to this day have constant spelling errors.

It’s a good thing it didn’t hamper my professional growth either. I’m lucky we have spell check on most document programs. Had that not been there, who knows? I could be living in the streets eating rotten cabbage verses a partner in one of the largest design firms in the state. It could have been disastrous.

Thanks for the heads up on the spelling error. I’ll practice my Hooked-On-Phonics tonight extra special hard. I’d hate to fall off the ladder and land in the gutter.

The Monster, you may have just saved my life. Thank you.
