tir_button3Last night, Fox News’ new website,, featured the TIR story about former New York Governor George Pataki calling on President Obama to fire Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano. Pataki made his remarks at the American Future Fund lecture series at Drake University.

Sean Hannity also featured Governor Pataki’s speech in Des Moines on his show last night. Hannity also mentioned the feedback that The Iowa Republican received following Pataki’s speech via text message. You can watch the video here. It is the second segment and only runs for a few minutes. I will also try to embed the video.

While I’m obviously thrilled to see The Iowa Republican get mentioned on Hannity’s show, I find it amazing that none of the other local media outlets covered the actual event. It was just TIR and Fox News.

Talk about a great way for the American Future Fund to kick off their lecture series. Wow!
