Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) is busy promoting her own anti-health care reform protest and Fox News is there to serve… as they did with the Tea Party protests, Town Hall disruptions and the 9/12 protest. But when it came to gay rights, FNC was nowhere to be seen.

Of course, The Fox Nation had to get in on the fun:

Fox & Friends host Gretchen Carlson was more than happy to help her former nanny promote her event.

GRETCHEN CARLSON: “They can go to FoxandFriends.com; we’ll link it to your website.”

Here’s Sean Hannity doing his part to promote the event:

HANNITY: So you’re organizing and asking people to come meet you on the steps of the Capitol on Thursday –

BACHMANN: Yes.

HANNITY: — and you are asking them –

BACHMANN: At high noon.

HANNITY: — to walk through the halls of Congress and try and voice your opinion. And so, if people want to participate, they’re going to be there Thursday at noon.

BACHMANN: Thursday at noon. You can go to MicheleBachmann.com for more information.

HANNITY: All right.

BACHMANN: And we can walk together through Cannon, Longworth, Rayburn, walk through the Capitol, sit in the gallery –

HANNITY: Maybe I’ll have to show up and observe this so our cameras can see democracy in action. But, Congresswoman, we’re going to continue to follow it.

You didn’t think Glenn Beck would pass up some protest promotion (gay rights aside), did you?

BECK: Michele, God bless you. We’ll get the word out and let’s have you on a little bit later on this week and we’ll continue to have you make the pitch for people going to Washington, D.C., noon this Thursday, and look them in the whites of their eyes.
