Shock talk TV host Jerry Springer wore out his welcome a few minutes into his segment on Fox News this morning. Springer was part of a political panel on “Fox & Friends” discussing, among other things, this week’s controversial Newsweek cover. An essay by Andrew Sullivan asks “Why are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”
Springer, who said he’s politically to the left of Obama, used the discussion to make a point about his perception of the coverage of Obama on “Fox & Friends.”
Springer: We’re here on Fox News. Every single day in fairness, you guys, every single day, bash President Obama.
Gretchen Carlson: I’m going to take to you task on that because on this panel right here, we have a fair and balanced panel right here. I’m the independent.
Springer: But, what’s the rest of the show? Every single morning you guys are slamming Obama. You know you are. I’m not saying you don’t have a right to. But every single conversation is something bad about Obama.
Wrapping the segment, Carlson added, “By the way, Jerry, you obviously don’t watch our show because you do not understand there is a reason — I’ll speak for myself as the independent on the panel — quite frankly we present both sides of the story and leave it up to our viewers to decide where they fall.”
