FNC’s Baier Understandably Squashes a Fellow’s Dreams

FNC’s Bret Baier, you are no fool. Most importantly, you’re staying one step ahead of Eric Hananoki, that little liberal bastard fellow over at Media Matters who keeps trying to taint your doctorate-level Twitter trivia contest.

Today, Hananoki attempted to confuse you by entering the contest under a new name. His new handle was screamingly obvious and you saw right through it: @SammonCmmntPlz. At 2:45 p.m. you implemented a new rule to prevent anyone from asking anything that strayed from vital trivia matters:

Sorry to bring up last week’s fiasco when Hananoki entered your contest and won. The deviant tagged on a question about your colleague Bill Sammon that rightfully pissed you off. So you gave the prize — a choice of a hot Fox News tie or mug to show off around town — to someone worthy. We’re going to break this to you gently. At 2:35 p.m. today, Media Matters fellow Simon Maloy gifted Hananoki a FNC tie as consolation to what they are calling last week’s injustice. Please, that was justice. Clearly, he doesn’t deserve to wear the esteemed tie.

Today’s Trivia Q: “Twitter Trivia:Yesterday on SR we told you about Pres.Obama welcoming a group of students at the WH. What state were they from & what grade?” At 3 p.m., @SammonCmmntPlz came in second place by two seconds with the correct answer of: 8th grade, Colorado.

Contest aftermath: At approximately 3:35 p.m. Baier blocked @SammonCmmntPlz. But it might not mean much. Hananoki (posing above in his FNC tie with Baier in the background) is already plotting his next move.
