Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer clearly was unhappy with the liberal topics being discussed on PBSs Inside Washington Friday.
At one point, he looked into the camera after mentioning the new deadline changes to ObamaCare announced this week and said, You wont hear about this on this show, so try Fox (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Krauthammer Tells PBS Viewers Try Fox to Hear What You Wont On This Show
GORDON PETERSON, HOST: We can tell you what they said. They said they dont like it. The Tea Partiers dont like it, the Heritage Action doesnt like it. Erick Erickson of Red State accused the deals co-architect Paul Ryan of outright capitulation. Ryans response was this: Look, you want to get things done, you have to be willing to be criticized by everybody. Republicans dont run everything. You have to find a way to work with the other side of the aisle to make the government work. Apparently there are people in Washington who find that kind of reasoning toxic, Charles.
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Let me start with an editorial note: I love how you guys just cant wait to get your teeth into Republicans throwing mud at Republicans on a week when this administration - by the way, the viewers, youre not going to hear a word about a week in which the secretary of HHS unilaterally, lawlessly changed every deadline in the ObamaCare law without any legal authority, in a way that is absolutely astonishing - but you wont hear about this on this show, so try Fox.
Just before the program's conclusion, host Gordon Peterson said next week would be the last show before Inside Washington permanently goes off the air.
With that in mind, maybe Krauthammer isn't going to be on next week, and this was his last chance to inform PBS viewers that they're not hearing the whole story.
If that's the case, I am truly saddened to think this is the last time we're going to see Charles squabble with the likes of Colby King, Mark Shields, and Nina Totenberg.
On a more personal note, as I've been watching this show since it was called Agronsky and Company many decades ago, it will be with a heavy heart that I watch the final episode next week with or without Charles.
Krauthammer’s been doing awesome work lately trying to get the truth out.
Well, that was a wonderful bit of advertising on Charles’ part for Fox News. He’s a smart cookie. He knows that next week will be Inside Washington’s last show, so he is trying to steer the viewing audience, who will be looking around for a new home, to Fox. Nice going Charles, clever move.
“All things considered.” Yeah, right.
Mark Shields has been certifiable since Jump Street. Any show with him on it gives you a lesson on how nasty, vile, and pig-ignorant stupid left-wingers can be.
That is pretty good Kraut.
I DVR Inside Washington each week but delete it if he’s not on the show.
Would have loved to see the whole show but I’d have to plug my nose and I’d have to take some blood pressure meds when I remember that they get tax payer dollars.
I've seen that arrogant little Nazi b@$t@rd a couple of times (before I wised up and stopped watching him). Your description is exactly correct. I could see him being the much hated and feared commandant of a concentration camp.

CK is a Washington insider....which normally means as a conservative, you try to be unbiased to maintain access. .. when the hammer starts to up the rhetoric you know things are very bad in DC....
I think he is very concerned about the future of the country...
Will Fox tell me about important news items that PBS doesn’t, such as the liberal war on Christmas?
BTW the link should be NewsBusters.org not Townhall.com
He actually said that I saw repeat on one of PBS SO CAL Plus that PBS SO CAL spin off channel LOL!
That will be his last time on that show!
Hmmm,I didn't know that.It's still a gutsy move,IMO,and you're correct to point out that it's a smart one as well.IIRC he appears on at least one other PBS news show (Washington Week?) and if I'm correct his statement might annoy the folks at PBS...thus the "gutsy" comment from me.And you're correct to comment on his intelligence...I interacted with him on many occasions when he was a Harvard Medical student and I was working at one of Harvard's big teaching hospitals.Very,very smart and a surprisingly nice,and down to earth,guy.I say "surprisingly" because if I had his medical situation I'd probably be nasty to pretty much everyone all the time.
He probably thinks about Death Panels more than most people, and he probably fears them more than most people. Perhaps not for himself (he's rich) but for anyone else in his situation, a lot of basic medical care might be "against protocol" just because they don't walk so good -- so why spend the money on 'em?
Such a condition can lead one to the inevitable conclusion that we are not in control of our destinies. To abide by this truth is to discover what that destiny is.
Good for Krauthammer, but those who live in the liberal bubble don’t want to hear that anything of value exists outside that bubble. It’s cozy inside the bubble. They like cozy.
You’re right - Krauthammer’s talking to the most closed minded people outside of North Korea on the planet. He’s telling them to open up their minds a little bit - try FOX - see how those OTHER than liberal elites see the world.
Good for Krauthammer.
