Why Does FOX Try To Pin Every Sex Scandal On Democrats?

This clip has been making the rounds on the internets, but for what I believe is the wrong reason. Sure Geraldo makes a dumb remark about the recently-disclosed affair Barbara Walters had with former Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke. But the more interesting part, in my opinion, is when Steve Doocy reads from his notes and describes Brooke as a "Democrat from Massachusetts."

Although Geraldo and Gretchen quickly correct the record, both Doocy and Kilmeade insist he's a Democrat. Who prepares the script for these guys? I'd be willing to accept it as an innocent mistake if it weren't FOX's pitiful track record on such matters.
