Media Research Center’s Brent Bozell told Alan Colmes to “hush” last night during a discussion about NBC’s decision to call the situation in Iraq a “civil war”. Colmes repeatedly talked over Bozell while he was trying to explain what a civil war really is.


At one point Bozell told Alan Colmes to “hush,” leading Sean Hannity to propose: “Brent, you get the award for the Phrase of the Year: ‘Alan, hush.'” Bozell earlier recalled how back in August of 2005 Lauer repeatedly pressed soldiers in Iraq to admit they had low morale, prompting one to fire back: “If I got my news from the newspapers also I’d be pretty depressed as well.” (Links to that incident, with video, below the break)
