'Iím not a journalist Ö Iím a commentator': Meghan McCain reacts to Trump interview criticism
TheDC ^ | April 28, 2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 04/28/2011 10:36:35 AM PDT by Rufus2007

Last week, Daily Beast columnist Meghan McCain sat down for an interview with potential 2012 GOP presidential nomination contender Donald Trump. The interview itself received criticism from many circles, and drew notice from both the right and the left.

On “Imus in the Morning” Thursday on the Fox Business Network, the daughter of the 2008 Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain, responded to her detractors and had no qualms with such criticism.

“You know I’m not a journalist, I’m a columnist and a commentator and working on being a media personality and I’m not mean, if you need a hard hitting interview I will be the first to say don’t go to me, I’m too nice,” McCain said. “I don’t like asking people uncomfortable questions because I know what it feels like on the other end. He’s very hard to interview. I was trying to ask him real questions and he’s like, ‘I love you, I love your family.’ And I’m like, ‘Oh, thank you,’ and I’m such a like dork. I go, ‘That’s nice’ and people are jerks. So I don’t know and I did it and got so much pickup and got a lot of crap from people. But I took him seriously and I think that’s why it got so much attention, because I was like, ‘Are you really going to Iowa and is your family ready?’ I’m sorry you thought it was too ‘kissy.’”

I would think even a commentator has some responsibility to be familiar with the subjects she is commenting about.

At least Kardacian knows she’s trash and has no illusions about her intellect.

Megham is an unqualified affirmative action bimbo just like 0bama. Like, ya know, and stuff. She is fair game for any and all criticism.

All that money and they didn’t send her to a school that taught her how to speak “like” an intelligent grownup?

Like, wow, man! She talks like gutter trash.

How about that Obama yesterday saying he had more important “stuff’ to do? He is so trashy, he makes his wife look classy!
Obama and the McCain brat belong in the same category.

Keep working. Maybe you'll be a personality someday. Then you can work on brightening up.

That pretty much explains everything about Meghan McCain. Recently the Borders store in my city shut down. Over the last couple of weeks they sold out of almost every book in the store. On the very last day I noticed that the title with the most remaining books was "Dirty, Sexy Politics" by Meghan McCain.

She says, “He can’t get elected because he’s been married three times...what kind of a first lady would his current wife be?”

Real, hard-hitting assessment of Trump and his policies...this kind of ‘journalism’ led to Obummer.

At least she admits she’s not a journalist. My only question is why the rest of them don’t do so.

Unfortunately, that substandard version of English is becoming increasingly present in corporations.

That valley-girl inflection of ending every statement? In the tone of a question? Like, it makes it sound like the statement? Is not really a statement but an uncertainty?

It thus becomes the weapon of choice for the passive-aggressive clawing type of ladder climbers.

Beck has been looping a Meghan McCain spoof on his radio show that’s hilarious. Does anyone have a link to the audio on line? I tried to find it... no luck.

She’s an idiot but she’s also a beautiful woman.

Most of the guys trashing her on this site for being ‘fat’ would walk barefoot over broken glass to get a date with someone that prettyl.

I was driving to Philadelphia when he interviewed “ Mayor Nagin”. (The bald headed guy “ I don’t remember his name”)and they went into “My Moms is in an attic, tryin’ to keep Bush from drownin’ her” From there it was hilarious. They did the same thing weeks later and poor ol’mom was supposedly dead and Nagin couldn’t get the body. I pulled over on the SureKill Expressway and laughed until I ALMOST pissed my pants. Imus was an A-hole but he was amusing. Right, DAVE? Dave ain’t here.

She writes material published in The Daily Beast, which is "a daily record of events" - a journal.

She's a journalist. If an uneducated one.
