Sometimes, Fox News Channel brings to the surface powerful stuff that you would never see on "60 Minutes." FNC is promoting Sunday night's edition of "Hannity's America" featuring exclusive interviews with some of the passengers who were on the plane with the Flying Imams when they got kicked off the plane in the Twin Cities last November. FNC promises they tell quite a different story about what happened than the Imams and the folks at CAIR. The passengers are so scared about CAIR's lawsuit and harm coming to their families that they would only speak to Hannity's people anonymously.
The show airs Sunday nights at 9 PM and midnight, Eastern time.

What follows is the text of a Media Research Center press release issued this morning by MRC President Brent Bozell:
Alexandria, VA – The top liberal media are extensively reporting on
the Bush Administration’s replacement of eight federal attorneys in
2006, calling it a political scandal and relaying demands by Democrats
for the resignation of U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. But this
same liberal media treated the firing of 93 U.S. prosecutors by
President Clinton and Attorney General Janet Reno in 1993 as largely
routine, and did not fuel demands for Reno’s resignation.
blatant double standard in coverage further confirms the fact that the
top media in America are liberally biased and committed to promoting
liberal Democrats and denigrating conservative Republicans. In
reference to this liberal media hypocrisy, Media Research Center
President Brent Bozell issued the following statement:
MRC director of media analysis Tim Graham appeared Monday night near the top of FNC’s The Big Story with John Gibson. The topic was a Los Angeles Times editorial attacking “General Pelosi” for trying to micromanage the war, when the Times felt she should either support it or cut its funding off.
Tim said the weird thing about Speaker Pelosi news coverage is “just how absent she’s been from the national discussion. She was sworn in in January with all kinds of pomp and circumstance, and promptly went into a closet, never to return…When you watch television today, the only way you really see Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats are still those un-powerful critics of Bush who can’t seem to stop the surge, who can’t seem to cut the funding off, and now you as you said, you have the left-wingers going out and protesting her in San Francisco like she’s somehow not an ultraliberal."
