Now for the top story tonight very interesting political situation.
Republican senator Tom Coburn from Oklahoma originally appeared a town hall meeting.
Where he was questioned about Obama care specifically how the government will punish people who don't -- mandatory health insurance.
If they can put us in prison -- where liberty are they not trampling on our Fifth Amendment right.
By putting it under the -- Yes the intention is not -- anybody in jail and that makes for good TV news on fox with that in the intention.
It later on senator Coleman was asked about Nancy Pelosi.
I'm a 180 degrees in opposition speaker she's a nice lady I don't think we can wait come on now.
She used to not have made no matter just because somebody disagrees with you.
They're not a good person they'll -- yourself -- -- biased by Fox News.
That somebody's no good.
No I joining us from Washington is senator -- -- biased by Fox News really.
Well bill that remember that constituents that come to my town hall meetings.
They -- routinely in uniformly listened to your network.
And every network has some bias.
I have a bias you have a bias you all work hard -- trying to get that by us now.
But the first question about.
The people being put in jail shouldn't make them she heard that okay PDAs only those so that the so my point is you highlight the point is this bill.
Is what we have to do if were going to win.
-- -- limited government for freedom for liberty.
Four is the expression that we all want to have in our country of our own individual rides.
That we have to win on the real facts of the issues.
And what we change those to where we inflame them.
We humans are carbon -- I've been saying that more than anybody that personally I have in my pocket and -- -- that okay but can you tell -- one person on Fox News just want.
Was told this audience that they'll go to jail if they don't buy health insurance.
Well I didn't ask the lady when she heard it.
Oh I didn't know why then was it legitimate to bring in fox news to a discussion we're number one you don't know anybody on Fox News because there hasn't been any one.
That said people go to jail don't lie mandatory insurance and particularly the lady was asked village -- questioning you bring that you brought in fox Liz -- fair.
Well my maybe it wasn't fair but here the point I I listened to fox along yeah okay I am very glad you're there.
You offer a balance to the total -- On the left.
But when were not accurate.
Or when we overstate the case and I will tell you I've heard that kicked in certain fox programs look at the table what what.
Because it doesn't happen here and we researched to find out if anybody on Fox News had ever -- you don't -- don't buy health insurance nobody's ever said.
So it seems to me that it what you did was to you you lose.
Fox News is a whipping boy when we didn't qualify there now let's go to Nancy bush let's go to -- blows that theory you may have a point.
Here you you don't have any point on the health thing that you -- wrong to do that senator with all due respect but here you may have a point.
Because Nancy Pelosi for some commentators on this network is the double.
I there's no question about that and your point about hey just because we disagree whether doesn't mean that she's a bad person.
I wish you all the way but again it looks like you -- singling out Fox News for a whipping here may -- we deserve it on Pelosi but we didn't -- -- on the other going to -- you didn't play what I said about CNN and fox I think you have to listen to -- And my my point to that town hall is we.
Who believe in limited government in individual liberty and personal responsibility.
Will win the battles on the -- So what we have to do is -- -- gonna win those battles just like I try to win in the Senate I have to know what they're thinking.
And then I want individuals and I've heard you say this on your show you wake up your mind here's the facts yet you present when we always and you let -- felt like up their mind.
And bill -- very good at doing that.
But not everybody is and not everybody's perfect -- -- so we need is just like I said of that town hall group.
I tried to read the New York Times not because I agree -- that I wanna know what the other side is.
And and there's no problem with that but the I think that the audience particularly in Oklahoma.
And the audience that follows you was surprised and shocked that you putting fox.
As is beacon of bias.
And then you know.
You know that the far left cranks that dominate the media took what you said and ran whether it all day long.
Well here's the problem bill and here's the problem I -- -- that first of all.
You all are run in the media now in Oklahoma -- -- all right and across than larger and larger percentage of this country.
But when that becomes the news story.
Instead of us trying to not add to the -- What we -- -- take your courageous stand and we say we're not gonna pass and unemployment insurance building we're gonna charge for grandchildren.
We're gonna do that it's that the story on the networks.
Is more important than the actual happenings that are going wrong.
And that's that's a problem in the media list because they don't want -- they don't want to talk about the real substantive issues you do.
But many do not OK so if you're not if they take a senator from your -- on cap.
Lou you're not gonna reform of corrupt media is not gonna happen.
During visits to make money a lot of people preaching to the choir but I don't want you I believe is an honest man you're obviously standup guys for coming on -- -- -- fire here.
I don't want you to be used.
By the real evil doers in the media and you know they are and they did use you in this case of -- -- last.
Well my last word is this having built on that side of the receiving end.
I think members.
Who agree with us philosophically.
Ought to do everything we can't have not demonize your opponents.
But the win on the issues in the long run we bring credibility and we bring respect when we do that.
And we wind our way and I I can't disagree with that at all and I think that's why our program is number one rated and and I have read our respect you put -- -- And -- thanks how are coming out very -- debate hey bill good to be which are.
