[url=http://mediamatters.org/items/200704030014]CNN's Beck, Fox & Friends continued smearing Pelosi over Syria trip
[/url]

On the April 2 edition of his CNN Headline News program, Glenn Beck characterized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's (D-CA) trip to Syria as "a little sun and sand and an ... unauthorized negotiation with our enemies" and referred to it as "Nancy's little play date in the Middle East." Beck also hosted deputy White House press secretary Dana Perino, who said that Pelosi's trip "does sort of defy common sense" because "[w]e, as an administration ... discourage them [U.S. officials] from going to Syria. It does not help the situation." At no point, however, did Beck mention that a delegation led by Republican Reps. Frank Wolf (VA), Joseph R. Pitts (PA) and Robert Aderholt (AL) met with Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad in Damascus on April 1.

On the April 3 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends, co-host Brian Kilmeade and Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr also attacked Pelosi, with Kilmeade suggesting the Pelosi-led trip is "bad for America" and Carr claiming that Pelosi is "helping out terrorist sponsors." Co-host Steve Doocy reported that Pelosi responded to the White House's criticism of her visit to Syria by noting that three Republican congressmen recently met with Assad as well. Carr, however, dismissed that fact, saying, "I've never heard of two of those three Republicans. ... They don't get much more obscure than that." Kilmeade appeared to agree with Carr's response, responding, "Neither did I."


But it's ok if REPUBLICANS do it:

U.S. Rep. Robert Aderholt of Haleyville, a Republican, was one of three congressmen to visit Syria last weekend, a trip that is getting new scrutiny since President Bush has criticized House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for visiting Damascus a few hours later.

[/url]

All this week I've been covering Fox and Friends and they've been talking about Nancy Pelosi and her visit to Syria. She's been called several little cutsey names along the way. Today it was, "Little Miss San Francisco" by guest, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters said it had been a horrible week for the west because of the confessions of the British Royal Marines and Pelosi's trip to Syria. He said that she had thoroughly botched the trip to Syria. He said that Iran had won and he was surprised that the Royal Marines had made confessions.

Doocy asked Peters what Pelosi had done wrong and Peters said that our foreign policy should speak with one voice and Pelosi is "fresh off the farm" when it comes to foreign policy. He says she doesn't know the Middle East and took the wrong message from Israel. She didn't confront them about Lebanon, she was a complete amateur. He said it was like a dermatologist deciding he's going to become a neurosurgeon.

Most of the coverage on Fox & Friends was concentrated on the return of the British Royal Marines, they went to Sky coverage for much of it, but they did manage to wrangle up one of their opinion givers who was more than happy to throw names at Pelosi during his segment. "Little Miss San Francisco" -- what respect they have for the most powerful women in our government today. I don't recall any powerful Republican politicians being subjected to such name calling, but I'll be on the lookout for it in the future
