Remember Liz Trotta on FOX last year when she joked that we should kill Osama Bin Laden and Barack Obama?

Trotta: ...and now we have what some are reading---as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, umm, ah... Obama, well both, if we could...haha...

She was forced to apologize on the air by the liberal blogosphere shortly after. In March, she maintained another lie:

Fox analysts: Obama is manipulating the librul press in a 'historic' way?

Greg Mitchell tweeted this and we grabbed it.

Liz Trotta on Fox just now bashing NBC coverage of Obama -- one year after she seemingly endorsed killing him "if we could."

I guess working for the Washington Times as she did in the past sure does seem to cause a severe "pundit insanity" syndrome. In this segment, she is furious with the media's coverage of President Obama's Middle East trip.

Trotta: It's the Obama glut and if you add that, another couple of hours of Brian Williams on NBC doing inside the Obama White House. I mean he's now up for the prize for Pet poodle in the Obama media kennel. Just unbelievable sycophancy.

Who, Brian Williams?

Oh, my goodness. The softball questions and the running up and down the hallways. Somebody compared the scenes of running up and down the hallways it to a scene from Goodfellows where one of the gangsters takes his girlfriend back through the kitchen in order to get to the secret night club.

Brian Williams, I've known him for 15 years. He's a decent, I think objective professional.

You're wrong, you're wrong. This is a network that has totally cast it's lot with the Obama White House.

We've heard that.

Trotta: They're of course the ugly rumors and reports about how Jeffrey Immelt, the chairman and CEO of G.E., the parent company, has sent the word down that we're going to be nice to Obama, because we want some of the government contracts.

Eric: do you really believe that? do you really believe that?

Trotta: I believe it's perfectly possible. I'm not saying it's so, but this is widely reported on the Internet. And then we have the stockholders meetings in which, where the questions were -- where people tried to ask can these questions and, of course, everybody's mic was cut. That aside, no, there wasn't even coverage of Obama. Again, he commanded the airwaves all week. And again, the press, which is his personal, you know, fan book, just play ball.

I always find it silly when FOX News people complain about other networks being propagandists when that's been their entire role for the GOP since its inception. I assume they know the FOX audience will bite, but it's still strange to see FOX complain about another network about this subject matter. And then they wrapped up the segment by attacking Williams because he gave a little bow to the president as he left him.

There it is. I mean it's just a little head nod.

Grovel, grovel, grovel.

No, it's a little thank you. It's a sign of respect. Thank you, Mr. President.

Did you see the entire thing? It was a grovel.

Listen, I'm no fan of Williams overall, but this is just creepy coverage of NBC and Obama by Trotta. I'm sure she's trying to get booked on Bill O'Reilly's show this week with this performance.
