Newsbusters ^ | 1/1/12 | Brad Wilmouth

Posted on 01/01/2012 1:20:56 PM PST by Nachum

On Sunday's Meet the Press on NBC, as guest Rick Santorum criticized President Obama for not supporting a democracy movement in Iran that might have weakened the anti-America radical Muslim government of Tehran, but, by contrast, supported a democracy movement in Egypt directed against a pro-America government - which resulted in an election that recently handed more power in Cairo to radical Muslims - host David Gregory accused the GOP presidential candidate of being "patently contradictory." As he moved into this foreign policy portion of the interview, Gregory brought up a recent speech in which Santorum accused President Obama of

We all have our favorite candidates. It only makes sense that the media and the rest of the democrats would support obama.

Every Republican who goes on this sort of show should look for opportunities to say something like: “David, you’re promoting Obama’s viewpoint on this issue. I understand that you like his agenda more than my agenda, but let’s look at the facts ...”

Excellent, but they never do that, for they want to be invited again.

David Gregory is another metrosexual reporterette from NBC-Obama who can’t put his panties on without whispering fervent praise of Dear Leader.

If Republican did say such things, and if the networks did get offended, and if the networks did stop inviting Republicans to appear ...

... don't you think the public would eventually notice that 100% of the guests on political talk shows should were official, card-carrying members of the Democrat Party?

The networks need Republicans to show up. One of these days, the Republicans will realize this.

Yeah I saw this Gregory was arguing with Santorum, acting as Obama’s surrogate. These “reporters” are disgraceful.

Gregory also was yelling at Santorum that everyone knows 3 presidents have failed to deal effectively with Iran. Ok, so?

The liberal message was it is impossible to do better.

When David was a white house reporter he always prefaced his questions with his opinion. I think GOP candidates should do the same thing to him.

In answer to you question David, I realize that you are irretrievable biased with a left wing agenda and have no interest in hearing any other view, but for the sake of your listeners who are interested in the truth, I would point out that most of our allies think Obama is an incompetent buffoon who has made America the laughing stock of the entire world.

The problem is that Republican candidates and office-holders are happy to appear on these biased shows, giving unsophisticated viewers the perception that the ‘news’ show is objective - when it clearly isn’t. I agree that smug leftist hacks such as David Gregory should be treated as what they are: shills for Obama and the DNC. No need for the Republican guest to name-call the host, simply point out (with a smile) that the (biased) host is parroting the Democrat line (or Talking Points) and instead of getting caught up in minutia address the fact that the assumptions and skew of almost any given question aimed at a Republican takes the leftist line. Of course, this will never happen. Republican candidates and office-holders like the spotlight and the prestige inherent in being interviewed by some ‘big name’ media star. Thus it ever was.

They did the show from Des Moines... I wonder if Gregory brought his passport on the trip since Iowa is another country to “his kind”. :)

Old Horseface (a/k/a David Gregory) is just an unofficial minion of David Axelrod’s Ministry of Propaganda.

Anyone who can’t distinguish between his cheerleading for the CommiePunk and a real journalist must have an IQ in the sub-68 range.

Although I wasn’t a big fan of Tim Russert, this David guy isn’t fit to even shine Tim’s shoes. This little weasle is way too tiny minded for the job. Russert would be embarrassed by him.

For the life of me I never understood why nobody, and I mean nobody on the Pub side has ever done that. It would be an immediate hit with the base and, would also serve notICe to the questioner that they will be exposed when taking sides with their questions. Newt has come close recently but he seems to have backed off.

For two years while Obama was campaigning to be President, he said he would have direct talks with the Iranian leader Ahmadinejad and that would solve all the problems.

Newt does that all the time.

But hey, maybe the “true conservative” will pull it off one time so we dont have to spend the post crappy interview performance wishing that he said A, B, and C.

Because people still watch them and news is made form the appearances.

Everyone knows these shows are liberal, however Santorum is supposed to have been PREPARED or at least be able to handle these goons.

He instead went onto this show like an amateur and let a dunce host knock him around.

Now how is he going to take on Obama?

Bingo. There needs to be coordinated strategy on the R side when they go on these shows. A strategy designed around treating the interviewers as a "hostile" witness, or a member of the opposition team. It should be standard practice for the conservative candidate to get this type of briefing/training before they go on these shows.

Years ago a FReeper who shall remain nameless coined the name "The Rat-Faced Boy" for Gregory.

Now I can never look at him without thinking of this. Hee-hee!

“What on Iran specifically separates the approach that President Obama has taken and that of President Bush?”

So now Bush is the “Gold Standard?” For one, Bush would have taken a more aggressive stance, but was blocked by the politically motivated NIE which claimed that Iran did not even have an a-bomb program.
