Another Swift Boat Attack From Fox News And Brit Hume

So Brit Hume finds a quote from one professor who has obviously not been following the news and it turns it into callings from anonymous "scholars and political experts."

Some scholars and political experts are criticizing Barack Obama for his response to the Don Imus comments about members of the Rutgers women’s basketball team. Obama didn't respond to the controversy until Monday night — when he called the comments "divisive, hurtful and offensive."

Princeton University professor Melissa Harris Lacewell tells the Boston Globe Obama missed an opportunity to prove himself to blacks and white liberals — instead letting Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson take the lead.

Can we expect anything more from Fox News than this pathetic attempt to make up a news story? If they had actually been reporting the news, maybe they would have reported this:
Democrat Barack Obama on Wednesday became the first presidential candidate to call for Imus to be fired. "He didn't just cross the line, he fed into some of the worst stereotypes that my two young daughters are having to deal with today in America," said Obama, the only black candidate in the race.

Well Barack Obama must have missed that news. Either that, or he's decided FNC is ok after all.

He ended his freeze-out of FNC and appeared on FNC’s “Special Report with Brit Hume” to talk about John McCain's new position on the war.

You might check over at Tapped. They are having the same discussion. Only it's Edwards in the firing line for not being holier than thou enough to suit them.
