Meltdown


by Turkana

This didn't take long. As Salon's Alex Koppelman reports:

An alert reader wrote in just a little while ago to let us know about something he'd spotted on Fox News Wednesday afternoon. During a segment discussing conservative attacks against Michelle Obama, the wife of presumptive Democratic nominee Barack Obama, the network described the former as "Obama's baby mama."

I checked, and sure enough, as you can see below, our e-mailer was right. In fact, that description was displayed on screen several times during the segment, which featured anchor Megyn Kelly and conservative blogger Michelle Malkin, an FNC contributor.

Fox already had to replace talk show host E.D. Hill for calling the Obamas' fist bump greeting at his nomination victory rally a "terrorist fist jab." Anyone else have the feeling Fox is going to have a very hard time making it through the next several months? And hopefully the next eight-and-a-half years?
