Obama To Address Rev. Wright Story on Hannity and Colmes
Apparently Sean Hannity said that Obama will be sitting down with Fox News reporters to address the Reverend Wright situation on the Hannity & Colmes show. This is where the Wright story originally broke on Fox News, remember?

This should be interesting.

2. Good move.
If this does not bury the Muslim story, then I don't know what could.

5. Wow! I though Barack would NEVER appear on FOX. Wasn't that some sort of pledge he made?
Edited on Fri Mar-14-08 03:48 PM by saracat
Sort of like he wouldn't run adertisements in Florida?

It makes sense to appear on the show where the whole thing started.

28. Wouldn't do DEBATES on Faux
That was the pledge the candidates made. The rationale was that debates draw large audiences and bring in a lot of revenue for the networks. Same reason Clinton threatened not to do debates on MSNBC after the Shuster comment.

As far as I know, none of the candidates swore off all appearances on Faux.

40. In point of fact, a little googling around puts paid to your posted falsehood. No such pledge was
ever made by Senator Obama - unless you count the time he and all the other Democratic candidates boycotted the FOX debate.

There literally is no falsehood HRC supporters won't indulge in.

I'm shocked he'd go on such crappy show. What time does their show air? We have Fox unprogrammed, and I'm going to have to make DH adjust things for Tivo to catch it.

If he can get past insanity hannity without getting bruised, that'll go far in neutralizing this issue for now (only to be brought up again in the general).

13. I hope this is true.
If it is, it says a lot about Obama that he's going to sit down and discuss this highly controversial event with FOX news first, instead of, say, Oprah.

Wow, actually.

Brilliant.

39. Obama's got cool, nothing for him to worry about.
he'll pull it off fine as he always does and end up looking like the responsible adult he is and not a tantrumistic child like his opponent.

what ticks me tho is how these idiotic stories that come out interfere with his schedule - he's been putting out a lot of fake Clinton fires lately. But then again, it gives him some air time that he uses well so it could be looked at as a bit of free advertising for him - thanks to the other campaign.

21. This is where this story has been for months.
This is the audience for this story. THe Obama campaign knew that this would become an issue, long ago. I expect they are well prepared for this.

46. Me too
The OP said he will sit down with reporters. I dont'know if that means someone other then Hannity. Also, if it's pre-recorded how will they edit it. I hope he's doing his own taping alongside the Fox cameras.

I saw his Pastor on Hanity's show last year. Hannity was so rude to him. He kept interrupting him and putting words in his mouth.

nights. It will be so great to see Obama deal with the mental midget!
