Yesterday Gretchen Carlson seemed to give the viewer her Fox & Friends’ version of John Roberts’ American Morning moment. On September 5, 2008, when discussing Barack Obama’s concern about being “swift-boated,” Roberts asked, “Do we risk, or does the Democratic Party here risk, Barack Obama becoming John Kerry II?” Yesterday, approximately a month later, in a segment on the Sarah Palin/Joe Biden debate with Bias author Bernard Golderg, F&F co-host Gretchen complained to Goldberg about a national newspapers’ headline that read “Biden Wins” when a mere 51% in the cited poll agreed. She asked, “Is that what we’re still up against?”
Did Gretchen inadvertently signal Fox & Friends’ presidential preference? To be fair, did Roberts’ slip manifest American Morning’s predilection? They report: You decide.
