Alisyn: Doocy “Parroting” Clinton Campaign

May 8, 2008

Regretfully, pressing matters have precluded me recently from blogging: sorry, gals and guys. As I sat down this evening to begin to wade through my F&F backlog for an entry, serendipity struck: the segment “Can Hil Hang On?” in the very first minute of Fox & Friends First provided the following nugget. As a preface, you may have read in an earlier post, “Murdoch: Crazy Like A Fox” that Steve Doocy tends to echo Hillary Clinton’s talking points.

In the very first minute or two of today’s F&F First, the co-hosts discussed Hillary’s fate. In a segment subtitled “Can Hil Hang On,” Steve said that Hillary should fight it through, that he would ride “that baby” up to the convention, and that there might be an “October surprise.” To Steve Ali Camerota aptly replied, “That’s her campaign’s exact attitude: you’re parroting it perfectly.” Brian Kilmeade added, “Could we take Steve’s temperature?” Exactly.

Had the lovely Ali read my Rupert Murdoch article before using my exact description of Steve’s “parroting” of the Hillary Clinton’s campaign in the race against Barack Obama? Maybe: maybe, not. Regardless, she stated the obvious.
