Even Fox News is confused as to which channel Don Lemon works for.
On Thursday, Fox News’ The Five aplauded CNN’s Lemon for the smooth way he dragged the president’s name into New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s bridge scandal, Mediaite reports.
One of Christie’s top aides allegedly sent emails asking that traffic jams be created, by closing lanes, for drivers headed across the George Washington Bridge in Fort Lee, N.J. The lane closures cost commuters hours of extra time and are believed to have been done as political retaliation against Fort Lee Mayor Mark Sokolich, for not endorsing Christie’s second gubernatorial run. Christie claimed that he had no knowledge of the aide’s emails and said that he was not aware that his staff had anything to do with the traffic jams.
Lemon asked his guest, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, to explain the “difference” between Christie’s not knowing about his aides’ plans to disrupt traffic to exact political retribution and President Barack Obama claiming not to know about issues surrounding the NSA and Obamacare, Mediaite reports.
“It’s good to see the media waking up from hibernation over these outrageous scandals,” Greg Gutfeld of The Five said. “It’s about time.”
Host Kimberly Guilfoyle said, “I thought I was watching Fox News for a second there, and then I rubbed my eyes.” She believes more journalists should be like Lemon: “Ask the pointed questions, be a journalist, do your job,” Mediaite reports her saying.
