On Friday, Media Research Center President Brent Bozell appeared on Fox News Channel's "Hannity" program in the "Great American Panel" segment. The topics included the stimulus package:
BRENT BOZELL: No one read this bill in the Congress, because we had to pass it because there was such a need to get this going so we could create jobs and give everything away. How much of the stimulus bill have we spent? Four percent. So much for that need. This is a fraud.
SEAN HANNITY: So this was really about bigger government? This is a fraud. This was greater control of government.
Also discussed was the resignation of White House Military Office director Louis Caldera, who authorized the ill-advised low-altitude flyover of lower Manhattan by Air Force One:
BOZELL: [H]ow about saying, "I made a mistake and I'm sorry"? "People of New York, I'm sorry." There was no apology in that resignation.He should have apologized.
HANNITY: If he would have apologized, should we have forgiven him?
BOZELL: I think, yeah, I would have transferred him to a job at 7-Eleven or something, with all due respect to 7-Eleven.
HANNITY: Wait a minute, did the government take over 7-Eleven? They've taken over everything else.
