This is what he said on The Situation Room:

HEWITT: "No, that's not right, because talk radio, when you look at Rush, at Sean, at myself, at Laura Ingraham, Michael Medved, Dennis Prager, we all conduct ourselves appropriately on the air, or the FCC will smack -- smite -- smack us down.---So, I think what we have got is basically a monopoly on responsible new media on the center-right side, and talk radio is responsible new media, even though that fever swamp on the left, the Michael Moore-disease-ridden Democrats on the left, they don't want to admit that, so they won't. But, in fact, talk radio is quite responsible."

He's quite selective in his reporting which is nothing new. The fact that he says he starts from "the center" is laughable. Here's a quick example of the fine, responsible right wing talk radio:

Boortz: I saw Cynthia McKinney's hairdo yesterday -- saw it on TV. I don't blame that cop for stopping her. It looked like a welfare drag queen was trying to sneak into the Longworth House Office Building. That hairdo is ghetto trash. I don't blame them for stopping her...

Michael Savage wants people to burn the Mexican flag.

Glenn Beck called hurricane survivors in New Orleans "scumbags," said he "hates" 9-11 families.

Can you help us out?
