The Worst Misinformation of the Year 2007

I have just read some of the most offensive, degrading and ridiculous commentaries on American Radio and TV in 2007, as quoted on Media Matters for America. They might be the worse examples of obscenity/vulgarity, hate speech and personal attack, but I do not agree that they are "the worst examples of conservative Misinformation of the Year", because the commentaries were the best expressions of free speech, simply calling a spade a spade, without fallacy or hypocrisy.
Don Imus, right-wing pundit Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Michael Savage, Pat Robertson, Chris Matthews, Glenn Beck, Melanie Morgan and others were just expressing themselves without caring whose ox would be gored. Like what John Gibson said on Jena Six:
"What they're worried about is a mirage of 1950s-style American segregation, racism from the South. They wanna fight the white devil. ... There's no -- can't go fight the black devil. Black devils stalking their streets every night gunning down their own people -- can't go fight that. That would be snitchin'."
They had the balls and guts to say it and even though millions of people were offended by the derogatory remarks and statements on race, gender, religion, ethnicity, national origin, and sexual orientation, but there was some truth in most of the satirical commentaries.
