Hugh Hewitt Makes HuffPo Reporter Look Like an Idiot (AUDIO)
Washington Free Beacon ^ | July7 2014 | Washington Free Beacon

Posted on 07/07/2014 8:49:02 AM PDT by PoloSec

Radio host Hugh Hewitt thoroughly embarrassed a Huffington Post reporter and exposed the scribe’s misleading view on Iraq during a brutal on-air interview.

Hewitt hosted Zach Carter, the Huffington Post’s senior political economy reporter, on the show to discuss recent comments by former Vice President Dick Cheney.

Carter had excoriated Cheney for remarks made about Iraq during a previous interview on Hewitt’s program.

The conversation quickly spiraled out of control for Carter when Hewitt dismantled the reporter’s false arguments for why the Bush administration is to blame for the current violence in Iraq.

Carter, in the interview, admitted that he does not like to read books, does not “believe” in journalism school, and had never heard of Alger Hiss, a former State Department official who was accused in the late 1940s of spying for the Soviet Russian government.

Hewitt went on to play several clips of Carter bashing Cheney and asked the reporter if he “had been drinking” or “on any medication” when he made the remarks.

Carter had a very hard time defending himself.

What is Zach saying, trying to filibuster questions on radio doesn't work so well.

Zach Carter demonstrates he surely is an idiot!

Isn’t this like a college professor talking smack to a liberal prison inmate with facial tattoos and an IQ of 35?

Or am I giving too much credit to a Huff Po “reporter”?

Six years on the job, and its still the other guy’s fault. Most other people would be fired for such failure.

Obama appears to pursue an anti-American foreign policy.

That being said, the notion that an Islamic middle-eastern country could be converted to Jeffersonian/Lockian democratic principles is dubious at best.

Why don’t we protect US interests, support our supporters, punish our opponents, and let others enjoy the consequences which proceed from their belief systems? In the middle-east, all Islamic countries are ruled by despotic dictators, caliphs, or monarchs. So be it.

The dictators need to know that opposing US interests comes with a price, and supporting US interests makes things better. That’s as far as our foreign policy needs go.

Hugh is brilliant, of course, but besting a HuffPo reporter would be easy for even one of below average intelligence (such as a senator or representative).

Liberal idiots have impressive imaginations. They make up stuff as they go along.

Hugh is a Republican shill, but his show is required listening if you want to be informed on political matters in the U.S.

Guys like Carter are so used to never being challenged that they fold like a cheap lawn chair when they are subject to real debate.

There ARE Rinos who are plenty sharp. They simply have no soul.

(BTW, I am not accusing HH of being a RINO, thugh he has annoyed me at times.)

He is and does some good work, but he has a little to much RINO blood in his veins for my tastes.

I agree. Hewitt is very, very good at doing interviews with liberals. He actually listens to their answers to his questions and does follow ups. He is able to think on his feet and he is very clever in his questioning with one question setting up another. Everything you would expect from a good trial attorney.

If you learn nothing else at law school its how to deliver a tough cross-examination.

Yet he's a senior reporter at HuffPo? Maybe adoring worship of Arianna is all that is required for employment there?

Bush blamer’s still lurk here as well—all due to a biological loose solder joint.

could be converted to Jeffersonian/Lockian democratic principles

Did the Bush people ever state this as their goal?

Who was claiming this?

To: what's up

Yes, we certainly attempted to create a democracy in a culture which is not capable of representative government. In the end, Iraq will revert to brutal totalitarianism, just like every other nation in thrall to Islam since the time of Mohammed.
