Jerry Springer Has Testy Exchange With Fox Host: ‘Every Single Day’ You ‘Bash’ Obama!
Remember the old days when Jerry Springer was a trashy TV host and facilitated arguments between moms and step-daughters that inevitably turned to fist fights? Well on Wednesday, Springer got back in touch with his controversial side and decided to challenge Fox’s slogan of “fair and balanced” while on the set of a Fox segment. And host Gretchen Carlson wasn’t having any of it.
“We’re here on Fox News,” Springer — the former mayor of Cincinnati — began during a segment on the controversial Newsweek cover regarding Obama’s critics. “Every single day, in fairness, you guys, every single day, bash President Obama. Every day!”
Carlson wasn’t too pleased.
“I’m going to take you to task on that. I’m going to take you to task on that,” she responded. “Because on this panel right here, we have a fair and balanced panel right here. And I’m the independent.”
“For this panel!” Springer replied. “What’s the rest of the show? The rest of the show, every single morning, you guys are slamming Obama. You know you are. And I’m not saying you don’t have a right to, but every single conversation is something bad about Obama.”
After another guest chimed in about the actual topic, Carlson came back: “And, by the way, Jerry, you obviously don’t watch our show, because you do not understand that there’s a reason — I’ll speak for myself, I sit in the middle, as the independent on the panel — and quite frankly, we present both sides of the story and we leave it up to our viewers to decide where they fall.”
She then cut to a break.
