Here's a sample of the "Don't you know who I am" syndrome from a FOX News anchor via CityFile:

Martha MacCallum may look like just another cutesy blonde anchor on Fox News. But it seems she has a darker side, too. A tipster tells us MacCallum threw quite the tantrum yesterday at a parking garage around the corner from the studios of Fox News when she turned up with her daughter in tow and her BMW wasn't waiting for her with the keys in the ignition. The outrage!

Infuriated that someone of her importance wasn't being treated with the the respect normally given to a B-list cable news anchors, our tipster heard her shout at the attendant, "Do you know who I am? Do you have any clue? I'm on Fox News!" MacCallum dressed down the garage employee for a several more minutes as her teenage daughter—who looked a bit nonplussed about the meltdown—stood by.

I'm shocked that she didn't hold her breath and turn blue. Being on FOX News entitles you to treat people the way you would like to be treated. Actually she did just that in her own twisted way because FOX treats liberals as if we're trash.

Can you help us out?
