5. CNN transcript that also shows were Burnett chuckled at Begala and tried to cut him off.
BEGALA: That's a fair point. But he was in a conversation with Mr. O'Reilly. I suspect if you were interviewing him, he, I would hope, would not have gone out of his way to mention that.
I don't know if any of our viewers has ever seen it, but FOX News, it's this comedy channel that pretends to be news. It's hilarious.
BURNETT: I'm sure none of them have ever seen it.
BEGALA: It's not on the level.
And I love that.
BEGALA: Let me give you a fair point here. On the IRS, for example, how much did FOX cover the fact that the same inspector general who originally said Tea Party groups were being targeted, which, if true, is reprehensible, also reported that progressive groups were targeted?
FOX didn't cover that part.
KRISTOL: President Obama is surprisingly thin-skinned, for the president of the United States.
BURNETT: All right, we will leave it there. You left Paul speechless. I will give you credit for that.
BEGALA: No. I just didn't want to interrupt. But I thought the president did a good job of standing up for the truth against a propaganda machine.
BURNETT: Thanks to both.
