On Hannity & Colmes, Sean Hannity joined authors Melanie Morgan and Catherine Moy in comparing Cindy Sheehan's purported interest in online pornography to sexually explicit instant messages former Rep. Mark Foley allegedly sent to underage congressional pages. Morgan asserted that "[t]here's a double standard and hypocrisy at work" in the fact that there was far greater attention and criticism focused on the Foley scandal.
On Fox News Watch, Cal Thomas called an upcoming film about anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan "a liberal porno film." Thomas then claimed that Sheehan has "manipulated" the death of her son in the Iraq war "for her own political ends. Her son was a volunteer."
In describing the shirts worn by Cindy Sheehan and Beverly Young that caused them to be ejected from President Bush's State of the Union address, an Associated Press report (later amended) described the message on Young's shirt as "the opposite" of the one worn by Sheehan, while The Baltimore Sun called Young's message "more patriotic" than Sheehan's.
On his radio show, newly hired CNN commentator Glenn Beck called Cindy Sheehan "a pretty big prostitute" but later agreed that "tragedy pimp" would be a more accurate term for Sheehan.
Bill O'Reilly claimed he was not "vilifying" anti-war protester Cindy Sheehan, just stating the "fact" that Sheehan was being "run by far-left elements who are using her, and she's dumb enough to allow it to happen."
