Up the Creek: Out to Embarrass Bush Over Alleged Video Stunt, Today Gets Caught in Stunt of Its Own
In a deliciously ironic twist of fate, shortly before airing a segment aimed at embarrassing the Bush administration by suggesting that it had staged a video conversation between the president and soldiers in Iraq, the Today show was caught staging . . . a video stunt.
Today's timing couldn't have been worse. A preceding segment focused on the incessant rains and ensuing flooding in the northeast. For days now, beautiful, blonde - and one senses highly ambitious - young reporter Michelle Kosinski has been on the scene for Today in New Jersey, working the story. In an apparent effort to draw attention to herself, in yesterday's segment she turned up in hip waders, standing thigh-deep in the flood waters.
Taking her act one step further, this morning she appeared on a suburban street . . . paddling a canoe. There was one small problem. Just as the segment came on the air, two men waded in front of Kosinki . . . and the water barely covered their shoe tops! That's right, Kosinski's canoe was in no more than four to six inches of water!

I emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm not a 24/7 member currently, so any members are encouraged to send to his private address.
BUSTED! Reporters are nothing buy liars, trained to do so in "journalism" schools.
Hey, looks like you did ping him.
That b-tch interviewed me a few years back at an anti-Clinton rally.
I sent Rush a link to this thread, let's see if he checks it out!
haha... great movie!
NBC can stick it where the sun don't shine.... actually... it shines there allot since they are always showing their a$$...
I'm glad to see the story getting play, but please note that I posted the story this morning when I originally wrote it for NewsBusters:
PS: it is so frustrating to hear Rush just this minute say he'd like to find examples of the media staging events. As others have mentioned, it would be great if someone could get the story to Ruh.
What was their excuse? Did they say she was just protecting her $400 shoes? I think not.
I did a search before I posted and didn't see yours. Sorry!
Did anyone else mail Rush? I saw it posted at LGF too.
Sortof yes! she tried telling them that they were worried about her going out there where it was so deep.
She needs a good paddling.
How is Katie Couric supposed to pretend that she is no different that her average female viewer when she admits people in her line of work are paid enough to buy $400 shoes? What a dilemma....
She's certainly a strange woman. Is she distributing swords as a part of some farcical aquatic ceremony?
"Silly people. Don't ya know the guys are on stilts?"
I'm sure this is on the future list of excuses.
I'm tearing my hair out listening to Rush mention one staged event after another and missing this great opportunity to nail the MSM on something that happened just today.
At this point it seems that numerous FReepers have emailed Rush, so hopefully his staff will pick up the story soon.
The idea of pinging The Great One, Mark Levin, and asking him to contact Rush, is excellent, if someone can do it.
I predict that by tonight, Hannity, O'Reilly, and perhaps Brit during his Grapevine segment, will pick up the story.
