That is an outrageous lie! And I am appalled and revolted—Hey. Is that a suitcase for of twenties I see?

Fox News interview with Dr. James “Is That A Bar of Soap In Your Hand or Are You Just Happy To See My Weiner” Dobson:

COLMES: Dr. Dobson, NARAL (search) is putting out an ad. They have an ad out on the Roberts issue. They’re an abortion rights action league. And we’re going to take a look at it, and we’ll decide whether or not you think it goes too far.

[…]

DOBSON: Well, I can sure understand why it is offensive. That information hit my desk about 4:00 this afternoon. I haven’t had a chance to look into it.

But if NARAL’s ads — or at least, in this case, if they’re consistent with what they’ve done in the past, it will be manipulated and distorted greatly. And I just don’t believe that what that says represents Judge Roberts. I haven’t seen it from anybody else. I don’t believe it.

But then money talks, and Fox rolls over on its back, spreads its thighs and puts out the welcome mat:

An advertisement that a leading abortion-rights organization began running on national television on Wednesday, opposing the Supreme Court nomination of John G. Roberts Jr. as one “whose ideology leads him to excuse violence against other Americans,” quickly became the first flashpoint in the three-week-old confirmation process.

Several prominent abortion rights supporters as well as a neutral media watchdog group said the advertisement was misleading and unfair, and a conservative group quickly took to the airwaves with an opposing advertisement.

The focus of the 30-second spot, which Naral Pro-Choice America is spending $500,000 to place on the Fox and CNN cable networks, as well as on broadcast stations in Maine and Rhode Island over the next two weeks, is on an argument in an abortion-related case that Judge Roberts made to the Supreme Court in the early 1990’s, when he was working in the first Bush administration as the principal deputy solicitor general.(my emphasis)
