In a Countdown first, Keith had only one nomination last night and it was an all-star right-wing FOX lineup; O'Reilly, Hannity, Brent Bozell, Laura Ingraham and Bob Zelnick for all insinuating that Ted Turner couldn't decide whether he supported America or al Qaeda in the "War on Terror."

The smear comes after a National Press Club luncheon the other day where Turner was asked what he thought about one's patriotism being called into question when they voice disapproval of President Bush's conduct of the Iraq War. FOX took his answer out of context and completely omitted the question he was responding to.

Leave it to FOX to pull something like this.
