She lives in my town. Around here we call her "Jeez Louise." The NY State Republican Party is so pathetic they can only put sacrificial lambs up against her every two years.

Rep. Louise M. Slaughter (NY-28) is an ignoramus.
".. a free and independent media is the cornerstone of our success as a democracy".

For the last time, the USA in not, I repeat, NOT a DEMOCRACY!
&*^%& it, we're a Constitutional Republic.

(Sheesh, and this mope is in Congress?!?)

"And isn't it funny how the libs claim to support gays but want to bash Gannon on his purported homosexuality?"

Yes, and just like they are for any minority unless they happen to be Republican - Then watch the real Racism emerge. A complete bunch of unprincipled hypocrites.

The white House has been incredibly stupid if they have put a 'ringer' in the press pool.

There are lots of left wing operatives in the White House Press Corps, but so far, all of them do seem to have real paid syndicated columns, or real salaried employment with actual newspapers or broadcasters.

'Talon News' is no more entitled to a seat at the table than any other pajamadheen.

Actually, probably considerably less if he has faked his resume, his name, and his occupation.

According to the Philadelphia Daily News, "Jeff Gannon" isn't even his real name.

This is CONFIRMED TO BE FALSE. I have an inside source at the Philly Daily News, he searched the archives and found NO such mention. So someone is lying!

Why yes .. that might be a good idea

Let us all vet out EVERYONE on the press pool at the WH and throughly check into their backgrounds and see what we find

Shall we start with David Gregory from MSNBC or maybe John King from CNN???

Is that her correct spelling. I tried to do a google search on her and her plight and came up with the equivalent of crickets.

A&E's series "City Confidential" did a documentary on her case, and they admitted that she was an avowed "socialist"(i.e communist).

The Niagara Falls Reporter appears to be nothing more than a blog, although they claim to be the only locally-owned newspaper in Niagara Falls. So we should email Ms. Slaughter and ask why she is referencing a letter with a demonstratably false claim.

Well, I felt unsure of the spelling, so I did check it, and I got that. I felt it should be "O'Hare," though....

Now I see both spellings.

Well, I think it is time for some "fact-finding" on the liberal Democrat "journalists". I wonder how many other Jayson Blair's ( http://slate.msn.com/id/2082741/ ) are working in the media.

" has phony or questionable journalistic credentials, is known for plagiarizing much of the "news" he reports,"

She must be describing the old media toads we see daily at the WH press briefings.
Bill Sammon, Deborah Orin, Byron York and the Foxsters are naturally excepted.
Does Ms Slaughter not realize that the citizens can actually watch the press briefings ?
Any one of us could predictably script the yada yada gotcha type questions asked by Terry Moran, John Roberts or David Gregory.
We would have trouble duplicating the pouting sighs, the eye rolling and sneers, however.
Jeff Gannon was a breath of fresh air and honesty.
We need more Jeff Gannons, not less.

"people have the right to expect that journalists who question their President everyday are experienced, independent, and perhaps most importantly, unbiased in their approach."
It's laughable. I'm sure the LSM presstitutes want to show their creds to us all, right?
 
"Unbiased". Yeah, I'd love it, too, Slaughter, let me know when it begins.

Dubya needs to announce that in order to prevent any more problems like this last one, all reporters will be undergoing full FBI background checks.

And all results will be published on the White House web site.

Unbelieveable. FR got Dan Rather and all they can do to respond is go after Gannon and Talon News.

And they did it with a falsified attribution to the Philly Daily News. I had a source there confirm that they ran no such article.

Someone should email Ms. Slaughter and ask why she is issuing a press release without confirming the facts of the letter contained within (snicker).

I have a sordid history of whoremongering, drug use, and excessive drinking; I have been fiscally irresponsible until very recently; I routinely call for death camps for liberals; I advocate the complete destruction of Islam as we did with Nazism.

I'll pass an FBI check, no prob. :o)

Someone at the Daily News checked for me.

So we have a falsified story. And I've seen these allegations echoed elsewhere. So if that is the case, how many of the other allegations about Gannon are false? They have been caught creating a bogus source.

Can you double-check your facts, then confirm where she refers to this article?

It appears Louise Slaughter just stepped into her own scandal.
