What Media Bias? (Oops, someone leaves their mike on!)
Little Green Footballs ^ | 7/16/05 | LGF

Posted on 07/16/2005 1:18:24 PM PDT by NathanBookman

Lefty anti-Bush site Crooks and Liars has a film clip of Lou Dobbs introducing a story about the Plame-Rove inanity; shortly after his intro, a female voice (a producer?) says on-mike: “That’s bullsh*t.” (Hat tip: Former Lurker.)

The commenters at Crooks and Liars all think this is great, of course, because the real threat to America (in their alleged minds) isn’t the ideology behind the London terrorist bombings—it’s George W. Bush.

Follow the link in the LGF page to get to video. It is only about a 15 second video. (I searched but didnt see this posted yet. If it was, feel free to delete this).

That's great. Note to others: Turn your mic up; the voice is faint.

btw: you gotta love how pathetic that site Crooks and Liars is: Lawrence O'Donnell refutes another GOP Talking point on Valeri Plame....On KCRW, Left, Right and Center, Tony Blankley tried to use the new trick of Valeri not being an active operative in the CIA by using Joe WIlson's Wolf Blitzer segment. Lawrence O'Donnell corrects Blankley by making the obvious point that Valeri Plame had to be an operative or else there would be no case..isn't part of the investigation to see if in fact there is a case???

What I find so funny about it is the wacko left leaning site appears to think it's funny that the comment got thru, but it really is just further proof that conservatives have been right about CNN all along. It doesn't help their cause at all.

I NEVER listen to Dobbs;

He's especially annoying because he has perfected the same (fake) "I'm leveling with you," hunched-over body-language that Charlie Rose uses.

Motto for the Month of July:

You can always snag a liberal or two
if you drag a hunched-over TV host
through a trailer park.

After going to that Crooks and Liars site I am now totally convinced liberals and dems will be out of power for years if not decades to come. They have absolutely nothing to contribute to America but hatefilled lies and deception about their political enemies. They can not refute facts. They can't admit truth, and they will not acknowledge what makes this country great and that is GOD!

Without the Judeo-Christian God this country, this idea of America, WILL cease to exist and that is what their agenda is geared toward.

MSM&D you are all losers and will be utterly defeated politically, socially, and culturally! Your secular realm will be swallowed up whole. The CULT will be religiously demolished!

I sound like a raving lunitic, please someone, bring me back to reality! I'm just SICK & TIRED of the left's B.S., deception and their asinine attempts to get Joe, 30 second soundbite, to zombie out!

"Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you'll find."

I hope Mary Matlin frying panned James Carville on the head for that remark.

PS. I know this is off topic but your post made me think of Carville and how much I dislike him.

Could minor Ambassador Joe Wilson himself have been the source in blowing his own Wife's cover?

It is distinctly possible, (though it may be unlikely that Joe Wilson himself directly was NY Times Judith Miller's source), since Joe Wilson himself evidently routinely bragged openly to strangers about her CIA employment, prior to such "cover" being "blown" in the press.

Here's an example of Joe's apparently routine and open bragging about Valerie being a "CIA agent," which became known directly to me over a year ago:

He certainly bragged about it per a famous and highly reliable source's (named below) account of his own face-to-face encounter with Amb. Joe Wilson prior to Valerie Plame's "outing" as a CIA agent/employee.

Based upon a personal conversation (we were in a small group eating; it was NOT an "off the record") I had with eminent historian Victor Davis Hanson (we were at a luncheon table together during a trip to Europe), it appeared entirely possible that Joe Wilson himself was the (or one source, if not the original one) possible source in revealing his own wife's status as a CIA agent or employee.

Victor Davis Hanson (Wilson presumably knew Victor Davis Hanson wrote regularly for NRO (National Review Online), had done OpEds for the Wall street Journal, and other publications, and had his own Website with a widespread following) said he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were both in the same "Green Room" before a televised debate-discussion on Iraq, etc. and Joe first warned the TV make-up person not to get powder on his $14,000 Rolex watch, then he bragged to Victor about several things (possessions and trips to Aspen, etc.), like his expensive car (I think it was a Mercedes), and then bragged about his beautiful wife who, Joe Wilson said (braggingly) was a CIA operative.

I asked Victor Davis Hanson Why he didn't write up this account.(?) He replied that Joe Wilson would probably simply deny it, since only he (VDH) & Joe Wilson were in the Green Room together before the broadcast.

However, it is now easy to surmise that Joe Wilson is a crass, materialistic, self-promoting, vain, egotistical, bragaddocio-opportunist, so this account is perfectly consistent with Valerie Plame's TWO photo shoots in Vanity Fair. (Or was it Vogue? No, probably too crass for Vogue, n'est pas?)

You haven't posted in a month and a half but you might want to answer to Hanson's response that "most everything" about your account is "inaccurate".

You wouldn't want to divulge a little more information about it would you?
