"Fox’s prime time shows are silent on Stevens’ conviction."

stevens-scary3.jpgYesterday, Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK), the longest-serving Republican senator in history, was found guilty on all seven counts for failing to disclose hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of gifts on his Senate disclosure forms. The story got heavy airtime on MSNBC and CNN’s prime-time programs, with Campbell Brown and Rachel Maddow each devoting multiple segments to the story. Notably silent on the issue, however, were Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity, neither of whom discussed the senator’s case at all during their prime-time shows last night.
