Fox News Debate: Is Iraq Important? What About Conservative Sex Scandals?


Earlier this week, I put my brave face on and appeared not once, but twice on Fox News -- once in their Election Headquarters' segment, another time on Hannity & Colmes.

In the first clip, you will notice that Monica Crowley and the Fox News anchor basically say that the Iraq War is going just great, and that therefore, it won't be an issue in the 2008 election. You'll also notice that I vehemently disagree:

Later that night on Hannity & Colmes, we discussed the John Edwards affair.

Hannity suggests that the media's failure to better report the story earlier on proves there's a liberal media bias. But then why didn't Fox News go ahead and report it? Does he really think Fox is liberal? And where was the similar wall-to-wall media coverage about Newt Gingrich's affair when that came to light? If the media is so liberal, why wasn't that a huge story?

As I point out, the failure to better report the story earlier on has nothing to do with a partisan media bias, and everything to do with the fact that Edwards was no longer running for office when many of the details came out. Here's the clip:

So what do you think? Do you think I hung in there? Do you think I could have done better? Let me know in the comments.
