Weekend Show *Preview* for 5/6 - 5/7 (not the live thread)
Network and Cable News Networks | 5/5/06 | Network and Cable News

Posted on 05/05/2006 7:41:09 PM PDT by Phsstpok

The main message is the Sunday Shows.  Message 1 will be the Saturday Shows and message 2 will be the show guest links post.  Then I'll post the ping list.

ABC This Week (George Stephanopoulos)

CBS Face The Nation (Bob Schieffer)

CNN Late Edition (Wolf Blitzer)

Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace)

NBC Meet The Press (Tim Russert)

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. For example,


TOPICS: Extended News; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 109th; abcthisweek; arlenspecter; cnnlateedition; danbalz; facethenation; fouadajami; foxnewssunday; gasprices; guests; howarddean; immigration; iran; iraq; janeharman; jimgilchrist; joeklein; johnkasich; johnmccain; martharaddatz; meetthepress; mikeleavitt; nancypelosi; oil; patroberts; petehoekstra; scottmcclellan; stevebridges; sundaytalkshows; toddpurdum; tomdelay; vandenheuvel
Saturday Shows Template

The Beltway Boys (Mort Kondrake, Fred Barnes)

CNBC's Tim Russert Show (Tim Russert)

Fox News Watch (Eric Burns)

Journal Editorial Report (Paul Gigot) - FNC show page

Ping

The Weekend Preview Thread is up

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

The most interesting guests to me will be the possible confrontations between Specter and Gilchrist (FNS) and DeLay and Dean (ABCTW).  I have a feeling one or both shows will wimp out and let the Dem/RINO appear separately and have the last word.  I also find it interesting that CBSFTN feels it necessary to start the rehabilitation of John McCain already.

The dominant meme appears to be that the preliminaries are over and the battle between the GOP and dims is well and truly joined.  Bush may not be over, thanks to his finally listening to the talking heads and shaking up his administration, but it's probably too little too late since he didn't fire Rumsfeld and Cheney shaking up his administration only proves that he's doomed.  And since Iraq seems to be going better let's totally ignore what goes on there (unless it hurts Bush).

I was watching Fox News this evening...and they advertised that Joe Biden and Specter would be on Sunday....

I guess they called an audible...they didn't mention Gilchrest, but that doesn't mean he won't be on.

BTW..did you see the new thread with Specter calling yet again for investigation into "Presidential Power", re: the NSA wiretapps???

Why does Timmy Russert seem to always have Democrats on by themselves, with no Republican to rebut?

But, on the rare occasion he has on a Republican, he always has on a Dem afterwards to rebut???

Rhetorical questions, of course.

I think I heard a long time ago...that Howard Dean never agrees to directly debate...he insists on being on by himself..

I could be wrong, but I seem to remember reading a note about that within the last few years...so, your hope for a Delay vs. Dean confrontation probably won't happen.

I remember his parting words to Samuel A. Alito -- Specter..Now I still want to talk about this Presidential Power thing. Alito... Yes, we will get together and talk.

We can only hope.  I kinda liked him in Congress.  I think he stinks as a talking head.

You probably have already read, or at least skimmed through, two of the pieces listed under Ms. Vanden Huevel's name, but, if not, they are worth it for the sake of amusement, if nothing else: "Tomgram" (my synopsis: this woman is the most depressed, unhappy communist in this country), and "Media Whores" which attempts to prove that Vanden Huevel is run by the CIA and spouts the Administration's policy. It's a crazy world out there, folks.

Yeah, I included the 'Media Whores' link for exactly that reason. There are the usual moonbats, like vanden Huevel, then there are the barking moonbats, like the folks that wrote that article.

Mark Kilmer has posted his preview on RedState.COM

Who's on the Sunday Morning Talk Shows (lineup)


For Sunday, May 7, 2006

Meet the Press (NBC): Host Tim Russert has an EXCLUSIVE! Call the kids! Call gramps! (IF you are either a kid or a gramps, alert another kid or gramps!) Russert's guest will be House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-California)!

FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace will talk to Pete Hoekstra (R-Michigan) on Porter Goss' resignation. Then he'll talk to Arlen Specter and Joe Biden.

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer to yacks it up with John McCain.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos talks to Tom DeLay and Howard Stern Dean, the magic man of the DNC.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer will talk to Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts of Kansas and House Intelligence ranking Dem Jane Harman of California about Porter Goss. He'll also talk to HHS Secretary Mike Leavitt, perhaps about bird flu, and his usual cast of thousands.
------

Well, we've got McCain (FTN) and Joe Biden (FNS) this week, with Snarlin' Arlen also making an appearance on the air (FNS, with Joe Biden).

MTP will be interesting to monitor because Pelosi will struggle to stick to the script. She tends to freelance, saying some of the funkiest things in politics.

It'll be interesting to see if Harman (LE) is still nuts. I wonder what the Hammer has to say (TW), and Howard Dean isn't funny anymore. The joke is too old.

The FNS web site still list Specter and Gilchrist and does not mention Biden.  Are they bumping Gilchrist and putting on Biden as "balance" for Specter?  That would be totally bizarre.

As per Mark Kilmer on RedState

(Gilchrist is) bumped for Biden, but he evidently has been.  I think Wallace was faced with time constraints and opted to drop immigration, an issue for the past umpteen weeks anyway, for something fresher.

Of course, Gilchrist might have cancelled.

So, scratch immigration and switch in Porter Goss for that issue.  Might that decision have anything to do with the fact that the polls are overwhelmingly going against the MSM "conventional wisdom" on (illegal) immigration?

Things that make you go hmmmm. Having completely failed to convince Americans that down is up and bad is good, they will now go behind closed doors to let the elites decide how to do what they know the overwhelming number of voters don't want. I am relying on Sessions and Kyl to stay on the job, and Bohner in the House says there is no way we will get the Senate version of the amnesty travesty.

Thanks for the posting and heads up. This thread is a good preview to what most likely comes up on the talk shows.

This week, I disagree to a little extent. All the old media folks are learning it’s too soon, especially since President Bush keeps escaping their carefully laid traps and plans, to go on too much of an attack. Add in the fiasco with Cynthia McKinney last week and Patrick Kennedy this week, and the Democrats need to regroup, along with the press.

Nancy Pelosi will continue insisting Republicans are the party of corruption in the face of Jefferson being indicted, and all the other revelations of corrupt Democrats. She gets the DNC memo’s but there’s real concern she reads it and does not understand the words. The greatest aspect of Pelosi is she really does project the very worst persona of what Democrat leadership would look like. She is one of the few who is corrupt, and nobody has explained it to her, so she is unaware of it.

I think the rehabilitation of John McCain is a red herring. CBS has no desire to do that, he’s simply filler for this weekend as CBS continues to put together their case against Republicans in favor of Democrats. If anything, CBS is gathering sound bites to use against other Republicans in the future. McCain wants on because he realizes his standing is tanking and he wants to shore it up if he can.

Immigration will still be talked about, although it will be used to damn both parties for not being sympathetic enough. GOP worse than Democrats, but both to blame. Still, with the Patrick Kennedy problem, I’m not sure anyone will talk about Teddy’s bill on immigration. It would be too easy of a lead-in to talk about Patrick.

ABC will continue using partial comments from both George Will and John Kasich to further disparage Republicans. Howard Dean will be asked about his comments this past week on immigrants with the suggestion that Democrats dictate the agenda for that issue now.

Great job phsstpok!

Wow what a lot of work you do on this thread!

Really great research!

Anyone reading this can't help but be ready for the action Sunday morning. I will miss most of the thread until late tomorrow, hope all goes well.

Personally I can't wait to see or, probably rely on the thread, to tell me what happens when Delay comes on. He is fearless and if any of the rats give him a hard time he is a former exterminator and will do his job.

Van den Commie is a typical rat spewing the DNC stalking line word for word. She tries to never ever let our side get a word in edge wise. She used to be a rather good looking woman but all that depressed lib/rat type life has taken its toll on her.

I have my questions about McCain. He may wind up being a media darling dark horse candidate.

The theory goes that the media really doesn't like Hillary all that much and they may have figured out that she stalls above 45%. Since the msm are all "poll whores" anyway they may have figured out that if they can get McCain in, he wins. It's the half a loaf theory.

To get him in they have to ironically go after him so we will come to his rescue, curious but feasible.

As probably your biggest fan, I hate that I have been out of the loop today...

I am at my daughter's house, and have no control of the remote for the one TV they have...plus, my 1 year old granddaughter is very demanding of my attention.

Therefore, I have missed all of the shows today...and will probably miss all of them tomorrow.

I definitely will have to try to follow the thread tomorrow.

Was the Journal show good today???

BTW...did you ever figure out why Kasich, who has his OWN show on Fox News Channel...would be a guest on ABC's Stephy Show??? That is bizarre...it isn't like he is an EXPERT on the topic dujour or anything...

Thanks for the ping. I'm following this too but I'm not speculating at this point. There is just too much unknown, and I believe things we may never know about happening behind the scenes.

I don't trust the old media to get it right either, so I'm watching but waiting before making any judgments.

It's just a bit of ironic comedy that the media now realizes there "might" be problems in the CIA. We conservatives have complained for years about bad behavior in the CIA, State, Defense, Justice and Energy departments without the press noticing it. It has been far too easy to undermine the administrations they don't like.

Wish Kasich would re-run his "Heros" series from a few years ago. Missed them the first time around. One of his commentators was XO when hubby was in the 12th SF Group in KC back in the early 80's.
