PBS Anchor Gwen Ifill Touts Pro-Obama Polls, Dismisses Mideast Violence As a 'Dust Up'
NewsBusters ^

Posted on 09/20/2012 8:39:23 PM PDT by chessplayer

On last night’s broadcast of the PBS Newshour, anchor Gwen Ifill discussed the latest polls with Pew’s Andrew Kohut and Mark Blumenthal, "senior polling analyst" of The Huffington Post. Her talk about voter engagement and enthusiasm got a little hazy – if not completely insensitive – when she referred to last week’s embassy attacks as a “dust up.”

Perhaps "dust up" in her mind only refers to the liberal media's insular discussions about foreign-policy developments, but could she sound more cavalier about the deaths of Americans in Libya?

PBS, the Polit Buro Service channel.

The new world order commie statist’s plan is to use the muzzies to bring down America then somehow get them to... stop ? I dunno, that’s George Soros’ pay grade.

4 Americans including a diplomat dead when we had warning is not a dust up.
It’s a **** up.

Beyond that, Obamas apologetic response has given the greenlight to every Islamic Ahole in the world and set it on fire.

“Dust up”? Hmmphh!

How many calories did she wolf down for lunch and who let her do it?

That’s what we need to know - how to bypass food stamps so you can pork out on your own without government help.

another shill for the regime

Hopefully they will NOT let her moderate another debate .

Like many blacks , who make up 99% of the 47% Romney mentioned , she is a committed racist voter .

It you want a black man , a real black man to be President of the United States , draft this guy :

http://west.house.gov/

He would be the best President we ever had .
Bar none !

She gets a pass from Michelle, she’s on her side.

Don't you get a sense that Romney is about to win this thing by Reagan-Mondale ratios?

That would get me to tune into "Hardball" just to see the reaction. I haven't watched a single minute of cable news commentary since clinton was President.

Still, even that would not convince me to waste a second on PBS news analysis.

I’m sure they’d have downplayed this as a dust-up if Bush knew two days in advance this stuff was coming, had embassy policies that didn’t allow maries to have ammo in their weapons, and got the Libyan ambassador murdered with three other Americans.

Is the dead Ambassador were Black, would it still be a “dust up”? Sounds like racism to me.

"Dust up?"

Ambassador Stevens' savage murder along with three other brave Americans hardly deserves being so cavalierly dismissed but Ifill's job certainly isn't on the line.

After all, it's not nearly as bad as trying to blame this "dust up" on Obama.

Yes, it’s a dust up, when 4 Americans were slaughtered, and the Ambassador was raped.

Get a grip, toady racist Gwen.

Sure she is. Like her hero, she’s been affirmative action’d her life. She doesn’t have a clue about the real world.

Gwen Ifill has been around almost as long as the Eiffel Tower. Why must I, the taxpayer, subsidize her when the country is broke. She is a partisan hack.

She almost seems to have been brainwashed. Once a upon time, she was not this bad. People as her look at situations entirety different that most of us do; so they think they are coming to a careful analysis more intelligently.

Being in the Middle East she could at least have said "sand storm."

What a callous, insensitive, brainwashed creature she is. Obviously her brain needs a "dust up" to clear out the cobwebs and Obamafog.
