Not Too Bright: Monica Crowley Edition
Apparently this post is getting many hits.
Since you’re here, why don’t you check out some of the newer posts? I’ve recently covered hot-button issues like healthcare, Sotomayor, Obama, and Palin, and some off-the-radar ones relating to both foreign and domestic policy. Trust me, it’s worth a look!

On The O’Reilly Factor, Tuesday episode, Monica Crowley was offered as the “conservative” viewpoint on gay marriage. Her reason why a majority of Americans oppose gay marriage? “90% of the people in this country are church-goers.” O’Reilly corrected her, saying that 90% of Americans believe in a higher Being: the correct statistic. But no matter, because Crowley continued to run roughshod over religious Americans, and blamed their belief in God for opposing gay marriage. Another statistic states that 70% of Americans oppose gay marriage. That would mean that 20% of those who believe in a higher Being support gay marriage. She totally discounts any other reasons why people oppose gay marriage. Not only is Ms. Crowley’s argument fallacious, but frankly, it’s offensive.
I’ve seen Monica Crowley guest hosting for O’Reilly and she hasn’t made any statements similar to this since. She deserves credit for doing a good job as guest and guest host.
