A Los Angeles Times article about Ann Coulter's recent appearance on CNBC, in which she said "we" Christians "just want Jews to be perfected," reported that "Fox News did not rule out having her on as a guest again, but a network executive said if she came on she would be pressed about her statements." Nevertheless, during Coulter's appearance on The O'Reilly Factor, her first appearance on a Fox News prime-time show since the day on which she made the comments, O'Reilly told her, "I don't even care" about those comments.
On his radio show, John Gibson said: "Media Matters for America, a Soros-backed, Hillary Clinton-backed media hit-job website is after me today because of what I said last night, and they are calling me a racist for what I said about this [school shooting] at SuccessTech in Cleveland." In fact, the item documenting Gibson's comments did not characterize him or his comments as racist. Also, philanthropist George Soros has never given money to Media Matters, either directly or through another organization, nor is Media Matters funded by or affiliated with any candidate or political party.
On his radio show, while discussing an incident in which a student shot four people at his Cleveland high school before killing himself, John Gibson asserted that "I know the shooter was white. I knew it as soon as he shot himself. Hip-hoppers don't do that. They shoot and move on to shoot again."
In a report on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, ABC News' Jan Crawford Greenburg stated simply that Anita Hill "told the FBI that, 10 years before, Thomas pressured her to date him." However, Hill has said she told the FBI agents who interviewed her "about Thomas' descriptions of pornography, the pressure for dates, [and] the discussions of his sexual activities."
On MSNBC Live with Dan Abrams, discussing Bill O'Reilly's recent controversial comments about his visit to Sylvia's restaurant in Harlem, Rhode Island radio host John DePetro stated: "It was a discussion on race and we're talking about Harlem. And by and large -- I lived in New York for years -- white people don't go to Harlem." He continued: "If Dan Abrams and John DePetro, Bill O'Reilly, some white guys are sitting around a table, and Dan Abrams said, 'Yeah, I was up in Harlem last night.' We would think you were either, a) looking for drugs, or, b) looking for a prostitute."
Discussing the Jena Six controversy, CNN host Kyra Phillips said, "Let's talk about the reality of the hate groups that are in that area [Jena, Louisiana] and the reality of a mind-set that does exist." In response, conservative commentator Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson asserted: "I also agree that there are hate groups all around the country. There are skinheads, KKK, and the NAACP. The NAACP is a hate group as well."
