Both Neil Gabler and Jane Hall from FOX News Watch (they cover the media)---were livid over the treatment of Graeme Frost, the 12 year old boy that was attacked by the right wingers after he came out and did promotion for the SCHIP program. Cal Thomas and James Pinkerton wank away, but Jane smacked them down. Good for her.
Gabler: Everything that the Republicans and the bloggers were saying about this guy were wrong. That should have been the story. Republicans lie about a 12 year old boy's family...
<Cal Thomas repeated the bloggers talking points...>
Hall: Cal, you've just repeated many things that were erroneous...The right wing bloggers swiftboated a twelve year old kid!
Thomas: Oh, please...
Hall: That is what happened. That is what Paul Krugman said and it is true.---They go after the kid. They go after the kid.
Pinkerton: You can debate whether you should put him out there or not, that's a fair thing to debate about...
Hall: SLIME a twelve year old kid..It's false.
Pinkerton: The Democrats put him out there,
Hall: So he's fair game?
Pinkerton: Of course he is...
Hall: To be slimed?
Pinkerton: You can't be wrong about your facts.
Hall: They weren't wrong about their facts.
Cal Thomas and Pinky defended the attacks even after it was proved that all the evidence the wingers put out against the Frosts were lies.
They defend the indefensible.
