(Saturday 2:30 and 11:30 PM on the Fox News Channel)
On the September 4, 2010 edition of Fox News Watch, the talk began with the media’s coverage of Barack Obama’s speech to the nation about the withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Ellis pointed out that the President speaking to the nation from the Oval Office fell flat when compared to his tremendous oratory skills when speaking to large crowds.
The panel also discussed the media coverage of the Glenn Beck ‘Restoring Honor to America Rally’. Jim Pinkerton and Bill Sammon both felt that the main stream press unfairly spent a lot of time focused on Beck’s history rather than simply covering the event but Henican pointed out that Beck’s well known ideology was part of the story and therefore fair ground.
The show wrapped with a brief discussion of how the press covers the information that journalists put out on Twitter.
