Looks like he ferreted out that factoid from this article

http://www.vailvalleyinstitute.org/amdiv/Fiorina.html

*******************
There were roughly ½ million people on this e-mail list. Now in absolute numbers, that’s a big number — 560,000 people. That happens to be the same number of Americans who own ferrets. And since ferrets are illegal in California and in New York City that number is clearly an underestimate. So, in other words, if you go out and pick out a random American voter, the odds are higher that that person owns a ferret than that that person was on Howard Dean’s e-mail list.

According to this website, there were just over 1 million ferret owners in the US as of 2007.

I know shows such as O'Reilly and Hannity have more than double that number of viewers.

So it took me less than five minutes to research that claim and show it is false.

Something Brooks apparently couldn't be bothered to do before using it on-air.

Typical lame-assed 'journalist'.
