Weekend Show *Preview* for 3/18 - 3/19 (not the live thread)
Network and Cable News Networks | 3/17/06 | Network and Cable News

Posted on 03/17/2006 7:12:26 PM PST by Phsstpok

Journal Editorial Report (Paul Gigot) - FNC show page

CNBCs Tim Russert Show (Tim Russert)

Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace)

NBC Meet The Press (Tim Russert)

CBS Face The Nation (Bob Schieffer)

ABC This Week (George Stephanopoulos)

CNN Late Edition (Wolf Blitzer)

This is NOT intended to be the live Sunday Morning Talk Show thread. I trust AB will do that as usual. This is strictly a preview of who will be on the main shows. The idea is to give folks a chance to muster their resources for that thread.

I would particularly ask that anyone with specific knowledge or resources about the topics / guests announced for these shows post them here so that the rest of us can go into the shows with a heads up on what to look for.


TOPICS: News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: abcthisweek; abdullahabdullah; ahmedchalabi; chuckhagel; cnnlateedition; dickcheney; facethenation; foxnewssunday; governorbillowens; guests; henrykissinger; iraq; joebiden; johnmurtha; meetthepress; mikewallace; ponnuru; ports; richarddurbin; richardlugar; samdonaldson; senjackreed; sundaytalkshows; zbigniewbrzezinski
These are links to recent articles by or about this weeks guests that I think might give a clue as to why they have been invited on this week's shows

Ping

The Weekend Preview Thread is up

If you would like on or off my ping list please Freepmail me

The most interesting guest to me is Dick Cheney.  How badly will they edit the interview?

The dominant meme appears to be that Bush the GOP is so over, let's look to his their replacement and ignore everything he they says say and do does from now on (unless it hurts Bush).  Oh, and we've lost in Iraq, let's go home now.

I will probably be light on this and the Sunday thread.  I've gone back to work and have actually had more trouble with my eyes this week, mostly because I'm having problems getting used to the better vision in the left eye.  Trying to work on my office computer has been giving me headaches and making me nauseous, but it's gotten a little better each day.  Today my brain just gave up trying to mix the vision from the eye with the contact lens (about 20/40) and the eye that had the operation (about 20/80) and I just can't read anything for more than about 10 minutes at a time.

I count on others to carry the load.  I shall return!

What an amazing amount of work you put in! Thanks for all you do!

I will be sure to watch Cheney on CBS, as I am sure he will destroy Schieffer. HA!

HELLO>...to one of my favorite Freepers!!!

Did you get your ping...from cgk, who is the keeper of the ping list thread???

I got it tonight...but, I am afraid I may have given him the wrong actual title of what you call your thread..

BUT, I wanted your wonderful new thread to be listed with all of the other regulars...so whenever a freeper, especially a new one, looks as the list..they will see yours.

Added and updated the "SUNDAY TALK SHOW PREVIEW THREAD" to the Master...

that's close enough for me, and in fact was the original title the first couple of weeks.  I changed it to "Weekend Preview" when I added Journal Editorial Report and Tim Russert's Saturday show on CNBC.

And thankyou for the compliment.  I like you too, and appreciate your work, a lot.

Can you believe that of all of these shows...there is not even ONE true conservative..except Cheney???

The two Republicans, Lugar and Hagel, usually pick these national shows to prove how bi-partisan they are...and bash Bush. And, whenever Lugar appears with Biden..he turns into a lackey for ole Joey.

Fox disappoints me...only DURBIN, no one to dispute his LIES and distortions??

I am sure that Timmy Russert will give Mike Wallace all the prompting and time he needs to start his retirement off with a bang...and bash Bush.

I am with you, MM....the ONLY show on Sunday that I will make sure to see is Face the Nation...

Russert's only guest is Murtha?

Did I read that Russert was subpoenaed this week?

I hate to even post to you, because I don't want to hurt you...but, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am that you are having a hard time...with the headaches and nausea.

You really could have begged off this week...we would have understood.

We would of course have totally missed the great work you do...but your health and well-being is much more important.

Please rest those eyes...we need you.

consider yourself added

and, yes Russert's spokesman, via NBC, said that he had been subpoenaed, as had the NY Times and their ex-reporterette.

My ears are ringing... and it brought me here.

:D

WOW Nice work! PLEASE add me to your ping list...

And... how about I ALSO add an entry on the Master List called "WEEKEND TALK SHOW PREVIEW" or something similar? You'll be listed twice for the same list, but that will help people find you - and also when people see the Sunday thread, they'll see your preview thread as well :) Sound okay?

Nope, not a thing.

As long as you are okay with the name of your list, we're good to go. If you ever transfer your list to someone else to ping out, just let me know, (if you remember haha), so people know who to go to, to be added or removed.

And thanks for the add! I appreciate it!

Didn't Russert have Murtha on for the whole hour...the first week that Murtha called for an immediate withdrawal of troops...

But, two days after the infamous vote in the House...that even Murtha voted against?

Dear Phsstpok,
I am so sorry you are having difficulty w your eyes. I hope everything gets better soon. Prayers up for you.

Thank you again for your very hard work putting this thread together. It's sooooo much work for you, and it would be difficult for anyone w no eye problems - - it must be especially difficult given your eyesight right now.
Your efforts and hard work are very much appreciated by many, many FReepers.

We'll miss you on the Sunday thread (I won't be able to stay long, due to other commitments this week), but, please take it easy, take care of yourself and rest your eyes so they can get better and we'll have you on many more future threads.

Best,
SC

Yes that is my fear as well on how they will edit the VP's interview.

Also I suspect they will show the most unfavorable shots of him, mid sentence appearing to snarl, that is a given.

I am after a favour as I cannot get Face the Nation could a freeper record it on DVD for me.

Thanks.

The time sounded like either something new or something special for this week.  the title on their Opinion Journal web page is:

This week, you don't have to stay up late to watch our discussion.

technically my eyes are doing fine, it's my brain that's having problems coping. Not really much they can do for me there ;^>

It's like when you get a new pair of glasses, things are changed and you take time to get used to it. My relative change was just a bit more extensive than most. I go back to my doctor on the 8th and he actually thinks that he'll be able correct me to 20/20 in the left eye with glasses. I haven't been able to wear glasses to get correction for 35 years! The prospect is really exciting. It's just getting from here to there that takes a bit of getting used to.

One of the things I'm most grateful for is that I've got a very understanding boss who is letting me work from home, in a slightly more controlled environment, about half of each day. Of course, he does end up getting me to work about an extra 3 or 4 hours that way, so it works out ;^>

Thank you all for your concern and well wishes (and patience with my soap opera)

Although not nearly to the extent of your eye problem..

I think I sort of know what you are going through. I wear contact lenses...but went to the optometrist to get some emergency glasses.

Well they thought it would be a good idea to give my bifocals...and so, of course, I went along with it. I told them I wanted the "lineless" so you can't tell by looking at them that they are bifocals....

I got them and tried to wear them that day...and I was SO nauseous, and had such vertigo...I couldn't wear them AT ALL. They told me I would get used to them, just to keep wearing them...but I just couldn't deal with the vertigo, which triggered the nausea.

I took them back..and said that since I wear my contacts 100% of the time, and the glasses are only for emergency, that I want just single vision, NO bifocals.

The new ones are better...but I plan on not having to use them unless I have an eye infection, because I keep a stock of boxes and boxes of new contacts at home.

Yes....I felt that way last night...for some reason Friday nights are my nights to have a lot of time to freep...but I can't find anyone that wants to "come out and play"..LOL

I have been on a thread about the riots in France...I should have pinged you...sorry.

If you get a chance to watch the replay of this show tonight, you should watch it....it is a great show.

Today's topic is immigration reform...and there are a lot of thoughtful opinions...no flame wars and shouting.

Darn straight the Memphis Tigers! (is LSU blue as well?).  Living in Germantown, TN, in the Memphis suburbs I'd be beat silly if I went any other way.  My wife's a travel agent in town and has been finding "miracle packages" for diehard fans for both Dalls and the next stop, which I gather is Oakland.  Folks are booking non-refundable trips based on assuming that Memphis is going to at least the Sweet 16, if not all the way!

And you've got my other team as well.  Though he's left school before graduating my son is an Aggie (once and Aggie, always an Aggie), so I pull for them too.

Gig 'Em

(that's as close to maroon as I could find) 

If Memphis and A&M meet by some chance I'll be torn, but will end up happy whichever goes on (is that even possible?)

Dave Sackett of the Tarrance Group said, in a memo to Mehlman, that distancing oneself from the president is a "flawed strategy"

Mr. Sackett is obviously a very astute observer since he agrees with me :)

Yes...I thought that article was really good...and I too, agree that distancing from President Bush is dumb (LOL).

BTW...I noticed that both Mort and Fred Barnes, on Beltway Boys made the comment that though "the talk around town" may be that Bush needs new blood...it was not a good thing for him to go public with his "suggestion"..

I agree with that as well...it was a dumb move by Coleman, and I lost some respect for him as an opportunist.

I am mentally making a roster for the new "opportunist party"..that I see forming.
