Franken calling for listeners to demand apology from Brit Hume
For Hume's shameless comment about the deaths of our soldiers. Details are on the blog for the Franken show blog. I don't have the url handy.

4. See here....TOTAL LIE by Hume..
For this (was done as a sotry on-air, from what i've heard):

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,95850,00.html

California Roughly Same Size As Iraq

Two hundred and seventy seven U.S. soldiers have now died in Iraq, which means that, statistically speaking, U.S. soldiers have less of a chance of dying from all causes in Iraq than citizens have of being murdered in Californiawhich is roughly the same geographical size. The most recent statistics indicate California has more than 2,300 homicides each year, which means about 6.6 murders each day. Meanwhile, U.S. troops have been in Iraq for 160 days, which means they are incurring about 1.7, including illness and accidents, each day.


_____

Problem is, the population of California is many many millions. And there are only a hundred thousand soliders in Iraq. So the real stat is that soldiers are something like 70 times more likely to die in Iraq than California.

Fair and balanced my ass.
