The fair and balanced network couldn't do a segment on Oprah supporting Obama without somehow smearing Bill Clinton and as a result, smearing Hillary as well.

Smith: Now for once, forget about Oprah. What America wants to know is---who Gennifer Flowers is going to vote for. Huh. President Clinton's one time...well...friend...claiming she'd consider voting for Hillary Clinton, surprisingly enough. Flowers, who works as a lounge singer in Las Vegas, says she likes to support her gender in the election. Hillary's camp so far is not commenting on that endorsement. I have no idea why that was in the newscast (laughter) but it was. Fair and balanced, a new face...

WTF? America is holding their collective breaths waiting to see who Flowers is going to vote for? See any bias there? Even Sheppard Smith seemed embarrassed to read that trash. Let's ask Roger Ailes why Gennifer Flowers, an already discredited figure was incorporated into a slickly produced segment directly following their wonder boy guest commentator, Chris Wallace? The fair part is to ask how OW's endorsement might have an impact on the Democratic primary and Hillary's chances in general. The balanced part is to smear Bill and in the process try to weaken Hillary. Shameful.
