SF Gate--ABC/Yolanda Perez 2006

A website has sprung up called FireElisabethHasselbeck.com and has a petition for people to sign if they think token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck should be fired.



ABC has just announced co-host Rosie O'Donnell will not return to "The View." Brian Frons, president of Disney ABC's Daytime Television made the announcement.



Brent Bozell, President of the Media Research Center which publishes NewsBusters, appeared live Thursday night on FNC's Hannity & Colmes to discuss Michael Moore's latest far-left documentary, Sicko. IMDb describes it as “a comedy about 45 million people with no health care in the richest country on earth.” Sean Hannity pointed out how the New York Times called it “a virtual love letter to Hillary Clinton” and how in it Moore takes workers sick from the 9/11 site to Cuba to get better health care.

Bozell characterized Moore as “Dennis Kucinich-crazy” and recalled how “Michael Moore said in 2003 that the Saudi Arabian royal family was hiding bin Laden in Saudi Arabia and the Bush administration knew where he was.” Indeed, that comment from Moore to HBO's Bob Costas was a runner-up in the “The I’m Not a Geopolitical Genius But I Play One on TV Award” category at the MRC's 2004 DisHonors Awards (posted with a streaming Real clip and transcript).

Canadians are mad as heck, and this time, they’re not going to take it. Michael Moore went too far to be ignored, which meant that a Canuck really gave him “what for” in the form of a polite but pointed recap of a heated press conference on Saturday for the premiere of “Sicko,” Moore’s one-sided US health-care hit job, which debuted at Cannes Film Festival .

 May 20, Toronto Star entertainment reporter Peter Howell wrote in the ideologically left of center paper that the Canadian journalists who saw “Sicko” were less than happy with his “playing fast and loose with the facts” and churning out a one-sided Pollyanna treatment of Canadian health care, presenting a system without problems. After being chastised by some of the most polite people on Earth, he fired back and leveled a truly terrible offense at them by stating their system is barely a step above America's. Quelle horreur!

Read what one of the few articles critical of Moore and his accuracy had to say about the movie's obvious problems with Moore’s film (bold emphasis mine throughout):



On the May 21 edition of "The View," co-host Rosie O’Donnell responded to the fall out from her moral equivalency rant on Thursday. Rosie claims some cable news outlets "twisted" her words, and then got personal with token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck, calling her critics the "crappy shows" that "Elisabeth watches."
