After reading the transcript, I think old Rudy handled them very well. First, these girls aren't mental giants but they are cunning and ruthless so you have to be careful with them. Rudy's years of experience in politics really showed. He's been up against far more formidable opponents over the years so he doesn't get rattled or mad easily which is part of the secret. He kept his replies short so they couldn't cut him off and frustrate him. This meant they had to ask a second question and my impression was that near the end he was giving them deliberately vague short answers so they would ask for clarification and soon they seemed to be chasing their tales as he led them in a circle back to where they started. A real pro.

Jones: "No, being against the war is not on the side of the terrorists, okay?"
Giuliani: "Nobody is saying you can't be against the war. Nobody is saying that."
Vieira: "The implication is that if you disagree, I think, with the administration that somehow you are on the side of the terrorists."
Giuliani: "That isn't who George Bush said that to, that isn't what it means. That's a way of misunderstanding what he's saying, which is what people do to him all the time."
Jones: "Well, please clarify it for us."
Giuliani: "No, I'm not going to clarify. You're either with the terrorists or you're with us."
Jones: "Why not?"
Giuliani: "Because there is no distinction."

And Fox News Channel is biased, right?

Good God, man. Three loudmouthed liberal women ganging up on a liberal Republican for the viewpoints and opinions he shares with conservatives. Absolutely shameful.

Oh, and don't try to pass The View off as not being a "news" program. Three out of the five women who appear on that show at one time were known as "news women": Vieira, Jones, and Barbara Walters, all of them leaning way left, and Joy Behar, a standup comedian who doesn't know jack ("He changes his mind based on nuance!"), parrots the other aforementioned three.

That's about it.

Former CBS News correspondent Meredith Vieira, who participated Sunday in an anti-Bush march

If I recall correctly, they tried her on 60 Minutes back in the day when it was something everybody in the unit watched Sundays and discussed at work Monday. As a bunch of high-testosterone, normal young men, we were all looking forward to "the new babe;" she would be a welcome change from Morley Safer & Co.

It was pretty clear three minutes into her piece that she was playing above her league. Way above her league. Indeed, the Monday morning consensus was, "I guess we know who Don Hewitt is banging." There was no other possible explanation for such a mental lightweight being on that show.

d.o.l.
