Posted on 05/20/2011 12:13:52 PM PDT by george76
Meet the Press" host David Gregory said Friday there are "prominent views within Israel" that support President Obama's controversial Mideast peace ideas expressed the day before.
When asked by MSNBC's Joe Scarborough, "What major Israeli public figures have come out supporting the President's speech," Gregory couldn't name one (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Unfortunately for the "Meet the Press" host, Scarborough exposed the charade with a simple question.
Readers are reminded that Gregory has been celebrated by his comrades in the media all week for his gotcha interview with Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich last Sunday.
Unlike those clips, it's a metaphysical certitude the Obama-loving press aren't going to be replaying this exchange with Scarborough non-stop for the next 72 hours.
"Journalism" today is about exposing the misstatements and misdeeds of Republicans not those of folks on the left and the shills that support them.

Mr. Gregory is neither a reporter, nor a commentator, nor a person anyone should pay attention to.
He is a snob, and he probably voted for Mr. Obama several times.
He’s a despicable biased jerk.
He is a Lib. Some Israeli Jews are Libs too. Libs must have a defective gene.
Is Livni an atheist right-winger?
Larry Derfner, Amos Oz, Saeb Erkat...
Wow - that was telling. Gregory caught lying straight out!
Or unless he’s counting Gaza as part of Israel.

In typical fahion, the MSM just makes it up as they go along. Now all the water cooler libs will quote him as an authoritative source on the subject.
Sure thing... like David Gregory has any credibility. LOL, LOL, LMAO
Is he the clown that asked Bush a question in French during a Presser with Sakorzy?
Yes. There is a significant Israeli Leftist/Liberal movement in Israel.
Some of them even protest with the Arabs against Israel. I know it is crazy and suicidal, but it is real.
Unfortunately, being born Israeli does not wipe out the crazy liberal Jew gene.
BTW, I have spoken with actual holocaust survivors who say they have seen all of this before. Many tried to warn the Jews about the NAZIs but they would not listen. They accused the people warning them of being ‘crazy’ and exaggerating the threat. “That could never happen. That can’t be true.” is what many of them said at the time.
They refused to believe it then, and many still refuse to believe today, that it could happen again.
It is just in their genes (part ostrich maybe). What can you do?
The interview with Newt wasn’t a “gotcha,” because it comes down to the fact Newt called Ryan’s plan “radical right wing social engineering.” There’s plenty to hate when it comes to the MSM, but Newt lobbed that grenade himself.
I can only imagine what it must have been like to somebody living in Britain in the mid-30s, when the media castigated Winston Churchill for daring to say that Hitler was an evil man.
Israel does the same thing to it’s own citizens.
If you become known in Israel as being too anti-Arab in your speach, you will be branded a ‘radical’ with all that comes with that label.
Israel is a socialist Jewish nation. Therefore, they behave in a classically Jewish way which is traditionally (in the modern sense of traditional) apologetic and appeasing.
It is my opinion that if almost any non-Jewish nation ruled Israel, there would not be any West Bank or Gaza. Goyim would have taken care of this problem decades ago. This Liberal obsession with ‘being nice’ to the Arabs is what has brought Israel to this place, on the brink of losing it all because they will not do what they know is necessary.
Uh Oh, I just branded myself as a ‘radical’. I can hear Israelis saying, “he’s crazy” just like they did before.
That Gregory got the best of Newt says a whole lot more about Newt than it does about Gregory.
This POS came down hard when Tony Snow identified his partisanship. David Gregory is no more than half the journalist my 10 y/o granddaughter could be in his position.
The Secret To David Gregory’s Great Hair
Mother Jones' Kevin Drum on Obama:
"...the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I'd literally trust his judgment over my own. I think he's smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted. I voted for him because I trust his judgment, and I still do."
