2006: Top Ten Videos

Jackie Mason, a spanking, enemy fire, John Murtha, and a leg lamp. All these and more play a role in the year's best video clips.

We posted more video clips than ever in 2006, and there was a lot to select from in compiling a top ten list. The clips are in QuickTime format, and should you have a problem playing them, simply install the latest version of QT [mac] [win]. Here are our choices for the best of the year.

10. The Mel Gibson controversy was a media sensation, but leave it to Jackie Mason to come up with his own unique perspective on the matter. See why he considered the fuss to be little more than Sick, Perverted Pleasure.

9. The Beltway Boys came up with a classic clip. Jim Moran and John Murtha are doing a Q&A, but they must have thought they were working with Alex Trebeck, because Moran insisted That Wasn't in the Form of a Question.

8. When she was on Fox & Friends, E.D. Hill could get worked up. And when she did, you could understand why she said My Blood Is Absolutely Boiling.

7. No matter how serious the day to day news, moments of levity can still be a welcome respite. Sometimes they were intentional, and other times they took everyone by surprise:

6. There were many 9/11 rememberances, but the ones from the perspective of reporters on the scene were particularly absorbing. Rick Leventhal recounts his experiences when he wondered: Are We Going to Die in This Truck?

5. Brit Hume has called Shepard Smith "the most talented natural broadcaster" he has ever seen. Shep can roll with the punches, but sometimes he just lets it all out:

4. Fox's Business Block is full of opinionators, but Wayne Rogers can make the others sound calm and dispassionate. He had his own solution for the most difficult issue of our time: Let 'Em Kill Each Other and Let Them Blow Themselves Up.

3. Julie Banderas did a show-and-tell with Trace Gallagher about a unique gift for the Christmas season. For some reason we can't get enough of watching Julie throw Everybody Under the Bus.

2. When wartime hostilities break out, FNC's coverage is unsurpassed. These dramatic clips show the eloquence, courage, and grace under fire of Fox's reporters on the scene:

And the #1 video of 2006:

1. This is the clip of the year, a now-classic showdown between Julie Banderas and Shirley Phelps-Roper. The video that spiked our hit counter to record peaks: You Think Gay Pride, Bimbo!

I like how Mort Kondracke loved that attack on Murtha.
Yeah, he's a real "liberal". Beltway Boys is the definition of heavily biased program.

Johnny, I'd like to say thank you for all the hard work, time, and personal investment you've put into this site in the last year. Your exposés of the lies and hatred of the far-left against Fox News are truculently pithy and concrete.
Keep up the good work, and Happy New Year!

I second FoxFan's sentiments Johnny! What you do is having an impact, as we saw not so long ago with one of the newshounds' most vocal supporters coming to the realization of what they are truly all about. Keep up the great work and here's to a happy and healthy 2007!
