Weekend Show *Preview* for 6/17 - 6/18/06 (not the live thread)
Network and Cable News Networks | 6/17/06 | Network and Cable News

Weekend Talk Show *Preview* for Saturday June 17th and Sunday June 18th, 2006 (not the live thread)

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.

Ping

The Weekend Preview Thread is up

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

I'm back!  Having survived Boston (with the special pleasure of meeting Alas Babylon!) I can now return to my official duties... sharing my priceless and spot on opinions!!!!!! (please remember to note my tag line)

The most interesting guest to me will be Tony Snow.  Based on the majority of Google News hits for "Tony Snow" it looks like the long knives are out over the "2,500 is a number" remark (forget the rest of the statement, just spin the number as an attack).  This is a big time test for Tony.

I'm particularly proud of the news links I dug out searching on both John Podesta and Simon Rosenberg.  I got a new perspective on the machinations in the Democrat party from those articles.  I think their on air meeting this weekend is a significant political event and could very well go a long way to determine whether the Democrats are united for the elections this fall and in '08.  Podesta may be making the opening move by the Hillary camp to the Dean/MoveOn.ORG camp on network television.  I also find it interesting that Rosenberg, Deans chief rival for the DNC post, has emerged as one of "his" guys, at least being presented as such at the Kos convention.  Perhaps this is the beginning of a grand alliance within the Democrat left?

The dominant meme appears to be that Bush has had a good month in Iraq, so far, but it's now time to get back to all of the bad things that the media wants to concentrate on.  Oh, and the Democrats may be totally in disarray and not have a brain in their heads, but it's obvious to everyone (in the media) that they're going to win in November... isn't it?

Hi Phsstpok!
Welcome back! Hope you had a good time in Beantown.

Thanks again for all your hard work this week. Loved your comment next to Lindsey. Well, Mr. Potato Head does it again - only has Al Murthaqawi on w no Pubbies to dispute what he says. I'm sure Timmy will be in all his glory - -asking the real tough questions of this Dim /s

I'm really looking forward to seeing/listening to Tony. IIRC this is his 1st time on the Sun shows since taking his new job and he should also have some interesting thoughts on Iraq after just returning from the Prez's surprise trip there.

Zbigniew Brzezinski.

Anyone who had ANY question about what was wrong with the Carter Administration discovered the answer in 5 secs of the PBS interview with this twit. I was flipping channels and heard him ranting and raving about "These sorts of Imperialistic Actions in Iraq have no place in modern times, they are doomed to failure".

Ok, that sort of wacko ranting may be part and partial of the Moonbat leftist speak these days but a former US National Security adviser SHOULD have a better grasp of reality then this nonsense. This is such a completely stupid statement in regards to Iraq one has no idea where to start responding. Best to just laugh at the absurdity and move on. There was not one factually coherent, intellectually honest statement in his rant so of course the Sunday shows will fall all over themselves to book him.

From John Podesta: "We can't solve the problem of global warming without multilateral action; or proliferation without actors operating in concert with another," he told the FT. "Ultimately, that means we have to accept constraints."

We must bow to the UN and the ICC. Nice to know in which direction they would take us. I don't care to go there.

Can Dems win House with unity on Iraq? John Podesta and Simon Rosenberg weigh in

Unity on Iraq??? Excuse me, 39 Democrat Senators and 43 Democrat Congresscritters told the Leadership to go screw themselves in the votes on Iraq this week. I know all the Democrat mouthpieces are out there spinning for all they are worth but this quite possibly was the most significant defeat of a Party's leadership platform in recent times. This is was a complete vote of No Confidence in the current Leadership of the Democratic party from Dean all the way to Pelose. They did not just LOSE the vote, they were humilitated, spanked, stomped flat.

OK, we beat Saddam when I was in office but then left all of the tough problems for others to solve, therefore you should look to me for advice on how to solve the problems we didn't solve when we had the chance

Love it!

Fabulous addition to the Murtha info on an FR thread, below, taken from the NRO Media Blog:

Murtha: Change Directions Like Clinton Did In Somalia 

I'm going to forward links to both the original NRO piece and the above FR thread to little Timmah on the What would you ask our guests link on the MTP web site.

Great catch, Pissant.

'This Week' will NOT air on Sunday, June 18, due to ABC's coverage of World Cup soccer.'

How would you know? In our market (Seattle area) they seemed determined to kill off any residual interest that viewers might have had to watch by shifting the airing times or preempting it altogether.

Of course I only noticed only because I used to tune in for George Will's contribution before he went bonkers.....

(snip)

But your most disgraceful case was in Somalia; where- after vigorous propaganda about the power of the USA and its post cold war leadership of the new world order- you moved tens of thousands of international force, including twenty eight thousands American solders into Somalia. However, when tens of your solders were killed in minor battles and one American Pilot was dragged in the streets of Mogadishu you left the area carrying disappointment, humiliation, defeat and your dead with you. Clinton appeared in front of the whole world threatening and promising revenge , but these threats were merely a preparation for withdrawal. You have been disgraced by Allah and you withdrew; the extent of your impotence and weaknesses became very clear. It was a pleasure for the "heart" of every Muslim and a remedy to the "chests" of believing nations to see you defeated in the three Islamic cities of Beirut , Aden and Mogadishu.

I gotta tell you if I hear another conservative or drive-by fair and dizzy spinner advocating the theory that we have had such a great couple of weeks that we will keep the house and senate I will get physically ill.

Who ever proffered the idea that we would lose any seats in either house!! People/voters just can't be stupid enough to vote for the terrorists CS party, they need the party that stands up to terrorism and there is only one; us.

There is a wealth of amusement in your links. Here is Rahm Emanuel on Ann Coulter: "Not a single Republican elected official has stepped forward to reject her hate, so I have to conclude they are comfortable with her as their spokesperson.

So according to him, Ann Coulter, a private citizen, is now an official spokesperson for the Republican party. Does that make Larry Johnson, who said that Karl Rove is so terrible, his mother committed suicide, an official spokesperson for the Dems? Rahm also said that Ann is afraid of the Jersey Girls. Obviously, he does not know Ann.

So wonder if he is comfortable with everyone hate filled wacko from Mike Moore to Cindy banSheehan speaking for his party? Utterly absurd for the Democrat Party, which has spewed nothing but political hate speech for the last 5 years, to start whining when someone fires back.

Ann Coulter did not give fire ON the Jersey Girls and Murtha, she RETURNED fire on them.

Once again you have posted a really valuable thread. I am glad to see Tony Snow on so many shows, and will be watching. I expect nothing but good news from his appearances.

I am going to early Mass tomorrow so that I can be here for Alas Babylon's thread. I hope you guys had a great time when you met!

I'm really looking forward to participating in the thread tomorrow.  I think this could be a pivotal weekend.

And I really enjoyed meeting AB.  I hope he enjoyed it as well. 

I now regret not blowing away my co-workers and seeing if I could work out spending the week with him.  From what he shared of his week I think he hit a lot more of the business contacts I was looking for than I did by staying close to my co-workers.

Ah, children, they have no idea of the opportunities before them.  What's really sad is when someone who should know better, like me, second guesses their own instincts and doesn't act on the best chances.

Ah well.

I found this while trolling through your links. Formerly found at the Center for American Progress, the daily talking points are now found here, and they are out after Bolton for the time being:

Mark Kilmer has posted his preview on Redstate.COM

The Sunday Morning Talk Shows - lineup


For Sunday, June 18, 2006

  Meet the Press (NBC): Host Tim Russert talks to Jack Murtha, the hip new face of the Democratic Party. Then he speaks to three oil company execs about gas prices.

FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace interviews White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, then he turns to former Clinton (Bill) boss-staffer John Podesta and Simon Rosenberg of the NDN to discuss the rifts within the Democratic Party regarding Iraq.

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer discusses the war in Iraq and the President's trip to Baghdad last week with Snow, and the ubiquitous Joe Biden and Lindsey Graham.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos will not air, as Steph participates in Soccer's World Cup. Or maybe he won't even go there. Either way, Steph gets the weekend off.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer talks to Snow, Pat Roberts and Diane Feinstein, and his usual cast of thousands. He usually lines up some nifty guest like an Iraqi cabinet minister or the UN undersecretary of something, fitting them in at the beginning.
-----

Murtha-mania again strikes Russert's show, the most watched. Give him airtime, make him seem the mainstream Democrat! Thanks, Tim.

Tony Snow will make the rounds, and he's the star. Podesta of the Center for American Progress and Rosenberg from the NDN are visiting from the belly of the tepid, smarmy beast on FNS, and Linsey Graham is a familiar face. (Biden, of course, goes without saying.)

But the best contrast of the week will be Murtha for the Dems vs. Snow for the White House (GOP). Murtha's taken some flak the past week, so he might be even more unhinged. Who knows what he'll say?

I shall, of course, have the review of these shows here at ReddState.com tomorrow afternoon.

Did you know that C-Span links to FR in its Blog section? I did not realize that. I just read Dean's speech to the KosKids. He says the most amazing things...e.g, the dems are not the party of big government. It's too hot and steamy to work in the yard so I am having a quiet and interesting afternoon learning lots thanks to your hard work, like how much Podesta is a stalking horse for Hillary! and maybe for Bill, because he is heavily promoting the UN.

I'm having so much fun that I'm going to share my findings, even if I'm the only one here. LOL. I thought this was interesting:

Chris Bowers and Matt Stoller, who write for the liberal blog MyDD.com, took control of BlogPAC earlier this month. It will no longer operate as a traditional PAC, raising money to support candidates and participate in elections, Bowers said....

If you read the rest, you will soon discern that Bowers and Stoller have just set up a little scam for themselves.

Daily Kos turns over BlogPAC to MyDD.com (The Hill, DC), found under the Simon Rosenberg heading in Phsstpok's links.

It must mean something HUGE when ABC Snooze gets the boot by something as worthless as soccer.

I didn't see anything listed about the big story of the current millennium -

House strips Jefferson of seat on Ways, Means
Richard B. Schmitt
Los Angeles Times
Jun. 17, 2006 12:00 AM

WASHINGTON - The House on Friday voted to strip Rep. William Jefferson, D-La., of a powerful committee post, while an effort by the Democrat to fight a search of his Capitol Hill office ran into a skeptical federal judge.

The voice vote, without debate or dissent, to expel Jefferson from the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee appears to be the first time the House has taken such a step against a member who has not been charged with a crime.

The Congressional Black Caucus said that Jefferson was being punished unfairly before even being charged with a crime. Some of the 43 members have said Jefferson was singled out because he is Black.

The congressman is being investigated for possibly using his office to promote business ventures in Africa in which he had an interest.

On Friday, lawyers for Jefferson and the House leadership went to federal court to challenge an FBI search of his Capitol Hill office on May 20-21, saying it violated the doctrine of separation of powers and the "speech and debate" clause of the Constitution. The constitutional provision protects members of Congress from lawsuits and forced testimony stemming from their official legislative acts.
