Skip to comments.MSM out of control
Posted on 07/14/2005 10:19:19 AM PDT by BMC1
As we all know, over the last few days, the MSM has been giving Scott McClellan a hard time about Karl Rove.
The MSM is now so over the top with anger, they can no longer contain themselves. In the process they have proven to EVERYONE what they long denied, which is they are far left liberals.
Lintening to the anger coming from these people like David Gregory is no different than watching out of control children throwing a temper tantrum.
What I find so humorous is that for all their stupid questions and anger at President Bush and Karl Rove, they obviously haven't read the Amicus Brief filed by 36 major news organizations and reporters groups. If they had, they would see the brief makes the case why Karl Rove is not guilty of ANYTHING.
For anyone interested, you can find the Amicus Brief at this web address: http://www.bakerlaw.com/files/tbl_s10News/FileUpload44/10159/Amici%20Brief%20032305%20(Final).PDF
Read it for yourself.
yep, it's laughable
The MSM, like the radical leftists they live to support, are out of any reason for existence. All they can do is pick on anyone and everything, while not providing ANYTHING of relevance or substance.
This would give me a very bad inferiority complex, that level of irrelevance, which they continue to prove daily...
But we are not hearing much about "Sandy Burger" from the left except for, making excuses for him and asking for light sentencing.
Why doesn't the MSM investigate all those Clinton accusations of rape (and worse?) instead of flailing about wasting time with this nonsense?
I think they are flushing themselves down the toilet.
Maybe , if we're lucky, they will be too far down the drain before they realize they've flushed themselves.
This is bigger than that.
I think Fitzgerald is trying to get Wilson and his democrat thugs on espionage charges for their bogus trip to Niger. They were interfering with U.S. national security.
This plame leak is their future defense.
That's why they're screaming at the top of their lungs over something that doesn't matter.
They want everyone to hear it first, even though no crime has been committed.
When Wilson and his fellow democrats are indited, they'll say the charges are bogus, and just retaliation for "Rove gate."
Then, they'll cry "victim."
Because he answered their single question about the topic, donch know? He told them to back off because his lawyer had already answered the question and made the statement that spoke for the impeached former president and he would have no more to add - he had to get back to the business of "running the country."
And the MSM fell silent - as instructed by their master.
They have been reduced to trying to impress each other and curry favor with their RAT handlers. I think they realize that they have very little credibility with the general public.
David Gregory is an idiot...I can't see how that guy still have a job...
Good point, they are obedient little pets aren't they?
See post #7.
What are the odds?
The whole Niger trip was orchestrated by democrats - ONLY democrats - from start to finish. Even the uranium mines in Africa are under the control of the UN, France, and Germany!!!
One point about Scott McClellan, he is just not a good spokesman, Ari would have sliced and diced these reporters up instead of being a punching bag.
The "White House Press Corps" are even signators !!!
MR. McCLELLAN: You heard from the President earlier, so please let me say that...
Q It has nothing to do with the investigation, Scott, and you know it! That's a dodge to my question! It has nothing to do with the investigation!!! Now listen to me! Can I talk here?! Is it appropriate for a senior official to speak about a covert operation!
The White House might want to revoke the credentials of Gregory and Moran and issue a statement that they are available to those who will uphold even basis standards of civility.
(thanks for the photo, bitt)
I miss Ari. Makes me think the Bush Administration is so naive about the "enemy from within" they are constantly up against. They just don't seem to get the fact that they are in a REAL-LIFE win/lose war with the Left and the MSM in this country and constantly under attack from all directions...including the WH Press Room.
I DEFFINATELY AGREE. Civility and decorum are completely gone in the MSM.
You feel like writing to their stockholders and asking why they don't hire anyone with a little dignity.
When will they realize that the old Jedi Mind Trick doesn't work on us anymore? When I think back to Rathergate, it makes me wonder how many bogus stories they have successfully sold to us over the years by manufacturing evidence, fabricating witnesses, and suppressing facts.
We can fight back. CANCEL YOUR NEWSPAPER SUBSCRIPTION NOW!!!!!!!
It's a start. I did it over 2 years ago and haven't missed a thing.
If you want a laugh, listen to the end of yesterday's press briefing. You can hear the briefing on Real Player from C-Span.
go to http://www.c-span.org and click on 'White House Press Briefing with Scott McClellan' (07/13/2005)
The briefing lasts 31:15 minutes. At 30:38, as Scott says thank you and starts to leave, a female asks 'who's the President watching the launch with'. Scott said he'll get a photo release of it. At this point someone (maybe Moran?) starts shouting 'Karl Rove? KARL ROVE? KARL ROVE? KARL ROVE?' and someone else asks 'is Karl going up in the shuttle?' Someone had the decency to say 'oh, come on'. But someone else says wonderful, wonderful. It ends with a female (Helen Thomas?) cackling. It just amazed me how immature they all sounded.
My head feels like it's about to explode .. LOL
And we thought we had a lot of bookmarks about John Edwards.........LOL.
Plame was transfered to a stylish european city. I'm thinking Paris. Could Wilson and Plame be going down for doubling for the French al la Pollard?
Is it too early to get a glass of wine .. *L*
I think it was all an American left wing set up to interfere with Presidential powers, and therefore interfering with national security during a time of war. The whole trip was proven bogus, and Wilson's lies have been exposed ever since.
The entire trip was designed, orchestrated, implemented, and completed by democrats. Even the Uranium mines in Africa are controlled by the anti-Bush UN, FRANCE, and Germany.
If they're in Paris(?), my guess is they won't be back.
The democrats who helped them here in the U.S. will take the fall, and Miller, who worked for the NYT(D), knows all about it, but fears Arkansaside.
The reason I add Miller is because the CIA only paid for transportation to Africa. Someone else picked up the rest of the tab. The NYT got the exclusive upon Wilson's return.
"And the MSM fell silent - as instructed by their master."
Jedi mind trick? (only works on the feeble-minded)
Death-ray gaze from the Hillary the Heinous Harridan?
"A gleeful mob of Democrats and their news-media allies is demanding that President Bush immediately fire Karl Rove, his trusted adviser.
What's next? Torches and pitch forks?
Nice alliteration. I would alter it slightly, strictly for specificity, to - Hillary the Haltingly Hippy Heinous Harridan.
A few months ago somebody posted an article on how the First Amendment shouldn't apply to the MSM. Interesting reading. I wish I had a link to it.
The MSM has lost control because it has lost a sacred cow. The myth of invincibility to legal challenges has been shattered and one of their finest, a woman, a presstitute from the Old Gray Whore's bordello, is in jail.
The myth of protected sources has been tested and they lost. Their very livelyhood is threatened. Sources are now responsible for their actions.
The need for them to kill is positively amazing and it is fun to watch as they try to wiggle away from the pin securing them to the mounting board. Alas, the pin has penetrated their vitals and try as they may they can't get free. Life as previously known is over.
It may even get worse. What is the Times hiding? Who is being protected to justify a presstitute in jail? They have not learned the most important lesson being taught these past four years..... Don't screw with W.
