>> I was surprised and very disappointed at Brit Hume and his panel on election night. They seemed, early on, to concede Obama won
Um ... he did. Once Penn and Ohio went, it was over.
>> [...] and they were downright giddy....silly.
They certainly were not giddy ... but they didn’t appear dejected either. Chris Wallace and Brit Hume are among the most professional reporters on the air in this country. And, the panel is largely conservative — Krauthammer, Barnes and Kristol wouldn’t have been “giddy” about an Obama victory. Kondrake is liberal, but pretty balanced. Juan Williams and the other lady are liberal.
I am not sure what you expected. Were they supposed to be flabbergasted, pissed off, upset, dejected? That wouldn’t be particularly professional ... no good analyst or reporter would act like the world has ended simply because of an election.
And, you know what ... life goes on. I refuse to spend the next 4 years angry.
‘...Were they supposed to be flabbergasted, pissed off, upset, dejected? ..’
I expected them to be professional. I’ve been a fan of Brit Hume for a very long time....and I’m sad he’s retiring. Special Report is one of the shows I try not to miss. I enjoyed the show because I believed I learned from Brit’s objective reporting.
I didn’t say Brit and his panel were giddy because Obama was winning. Seemed they knew what the outcome would be.....as many did since, imho, this election was practically bought.....and just decided they would ‘have fun’ vs delivering serious reporting as they usually do.
Sorry if I offended your senses....but, at least for now..I’m entitled to my opinion. And, btw, I’m not angry....disgusted at the RNC maybe but, not angry.
