You Can't Make This Stuff Up ...
Mort Kondracke, on Fox News Channel's Special Report With Brit Hume, said Thursday that incoming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) should be nicknamed the “Wicked Witch of the West.”
Remember, Knodracke is supposed to provide "balance" for Hume's so-called "All Stars." Kondracke is supposed to express opinions to the left of the likes of Fred Barnes and Bill Kristol.
Here's the transcript (the link also has video):
KONDRACKE: So the history on House leadership is, we had “The Hammer, Tom DeLay, and now we have the “Wicked Witch of the West,” you know, Nancy Pelosi, who is twisting arms and making — you know, having her aides making threats, and stuff like that.
HUME: But was that really happening?
KONDRACKE: Supposedly. That’s, that’s — it got heavily reported, and I have heard no contradictions of that.
That's how things work on Fox News. Name-calling, backed by hearsay. No wonder Fox News is losing viewers.
