5. Did anyone actually see the statue pulled down
or ANYTHING Other than just crowds on the webcast? I've gone to it off and on all morning and never saw the statue... (no tv/cable access right now).

20. I heard that.
The chick on before Wolf was saying the same thing. That they had tried to pull the statue down several times! She was laughing and saying we'll go to commercial and acting like we'll be back and see if these idiots can get their act together! Bullshit!

23. Not on FOX..........

I have 2 tv's in my room, I had FOX on one with the sound off. I had CNN on the main tv
with the sound on, then I flipped back and forth from CNN to MSNBC. When the Bush statue
was pulled down CNN and MSNBC covered it live. FOX was doing Michael Jackson stuff, and
then they went to the weather guy.

FOX did not cover the Bush statue being pulled down.

The statue was pulled down about 11:15 or 11:20 cst, only CNN and MSNBC showed it live.

FOX had no England protest coverage at all from 11:00 to 11:30 cst, then at 11:30 they
showed a 5 second clip of the Bush statue being pulled down. Then they instantly switched
back to Michael Jackson coverage etc.
