Kilmeade Rocks

Posted on 02/25/2003 6:06:16 AM PST by William McKinley

I apologize for this vanity, but for those who just missed Brian Kilmeade absolutely tearing into the leftist propaganda of Janeane Garofalo, did you miss a treat.

The highlight, to me was when he said why should Americans give you credibility merely because you are an actress. She replied, what does what my profession is have to do with anything. His reply:

"It's the only reason you are here."

It was great, I wish it could have gone on but Fox and Friends was over.

You're just going to tease us and quit?

Where's the beef? Did he make her cry?

You beat me by one minute! I thought that the debate was fairly even, actually. Janeane was still WRONG, but she was a heck of a lot better in expressing her views than any other celeb that I've seen.

My description does not do the exchange justice. She kept going on about how Fox is a right-wing propaganda branch of the government, about how this is a war for oil, and he just would not let her get away with it. Every assertion challenged, and challenged fiercely. He wouldn't let her grandstand, but still gave her every chance to make her case which she refused or was unable to do.

It was sweet.

Brian was great! He didn't let her get away with her disinformation campaign at all.

Hey, she was only a moment away from spouting, "No Blood For Oil.

I can't agree.

Her main points were "it's a war for oil". We have seen the replies to this many times over. "Fox is a mouthpiece for the administration". His answers, "Geraldo? Alan Colmes? And since we are winning the ratings battle, what does that say about where the center of this country is?"

And so on.

She was out of her depth.

Don't apologize. Some other clown just posted one sentence about it in Breaking News, and the one sentence didn't even describe what happened.

A juggling clown?

I thought about posting it to BN, but it isn't really breaking news, and if you didn't see it the post isn't really going to show it. But it was worth bringing up for those who saw it to revel in. It really was fun to watch.

Brian clearly won. Janeane was reduced to "Fox is a pub mouthpiece and what pseudo-intellectual periodicals do you read, Brian" crap.

Brian Kilmeade was terrific!!! He totally controlled the questioning so that Garofolo couldn't weasel out of her answers. She was really rattled!

I emailed the show to voice my support for Brian. (friends@foxnews.com)

Somebody stated on the other locked thread that Janeane Garofalo had more class.

I think Brian showed what it means to challenge the appeasement orthodoxy of Hollywood espoused by celebrities like Ms. Garofalo.

Ms. Garofalo tried to change facts to her side such as "Inspection can work" when, in fact, the only reason past inspections were successful was because of Iraqi defections. Inspections have never been successful where a country has not willingly disarmed.

I give KUDO's to Brian for having the cajones to challenge and not let her get away with perverting the truth. I'm also somewhat surprised that the the weather guy just sat there and offered Ms. Garofalo a cup of coffee.

I'm sure if the troops in Kuwait saw the exchange, they were root'n for Brian. I know that this old Marine was hoot'n and holler'n "rub it brian... go get her... yeah baby... take that you b*tch... bam ... "

I loved it. =)

These are the times that I wish I was a pundit on TV.

My reply to the naive Ms. Garafalo would be simple and to the point.

Would she trust her life to Saddam Hussein or George Bush?

And if we did nothing to protect ourselves proactively like the great stainmaker, would she trade places with one of the victims in the WTC on Sept 11th?

She was creamed by Brian. He kept firing her questions before she could go off on one of those typical socialist rants about this and that. She could not handle it and was looking this way and that way for an exit. Rolling of the eyes indicate arrogance and when he confronted her on her being a celeb, she lost it. Brian hit the nail on the head and she didnt like it. Typical of the socialists, they cant stand being confronted with facts nor can they answer questions straight up.

I think Steve Doocy knew that Brian was doing a great job and just got out of the way. His job was to keep Garofolo in her seat so she wouln't storm out. Steve's a great guy.

Brian got in a great zinger by calling attention to the fact that the only reason Garofalo was on the show was because she's a celebrity, but he needed more sharp ones like that. Garofalo needed to be challenged, but he did it in a belligerent, argumentative way that made her look more reasoned by comparison. His tactics were wrong. The "Did you read this, did you read that?" tactic for one was unwise, since none of us can keep abreast of everything, and admittedly Garofalo was right in her response to that. I say get rid of Brian -- and doofy Steve Doocey -- and give the morning show to Lauren Green, E.D. and another guy who has more class like Lauren and E.D. have.

I deliberately turned it OFF before it started -- I figured those lightweight hosts bantering back and forth would make it nothing more than a fluff piece where she would get to spew her leftist anti-war crap with little or no challenge from the hosts. I just got cable this month so don't know all the Fox personalities yet, except the big ones like Brit, Tony, etc.

(BTW - did anyone see Brit's interview last night with Juan regarding Juan's new book on faith? I was impressed with what Juan has done and he is knowledgeable about black history and the impact of Christianity in helping that race get through the slavery, segregation and racism trials they endured here in America. I laughed at one point when Juan addressed Brit as "Sir".)

I'm sure if the troops in Kuwait saw the exchange, they were root'n for Brian.

His visit with the troops has really wound him up. They ought to rotate Neil Cavuto in with the Fox & Friends cast. He rates right up there in fire power with Brian and E.D. I'd like to see Neil and Brian interview Chirac.

"She said that it was not hip to protest during clinton's administration."

I missed that somehow, but I would like to see her proof about a statement she made the other day that Susan Sarandon was out in front protesting Clinton's bombing of Iraq in 1998.

Yeah, I saw this. Just another "debate" that is really a shouting match where whoever behaves the most ill-mannered and yells loudest "wins", while the so-called "moderator" sits there and does nothing to ensure that the discussion stays on some kind of track and the two participants respond to each other instead of changing the subject each time they hear something they don't want to respond to. I give the kudos to Jeanne Garofalo not by force of argument, but purely on the basis that she's better mannered.

And the line about "Why should we listen to you, you're just a celebrity" - while I fully agree with the spirit of the statement, the reality is that it's a great way to change the focus from the substance of an argument to the person making it, thus neatly avoiding having to actually debate the issue. "Why do you think you're here?" - inviting someone to debate an issue, and then attacking the basis on which they were invited instead of discussing the issue that they were invited there to debate is also a great sidetrack to change the focus from the issue, and quite rude besides. If you don't want to feed the celebrity machine, then don't invite them.

I must respectfully disagree. Brian & Steve are very intelligent conservative guys. Their sense of humor may not be to your liking, but they are really great at delivering the news in the entertaining format of the Fox & Friends show.

Also, I wish E.D. had been there this morning to get the trio back together. I'm sure she would have had some good shots at Garofolo.

I saw it and loved it. Kilmeade was great. I've seen Garafalo before and I would give her credit for appearing on Fox and not staying on more friendly territory except all she did was spew what magazines she reads. She puts on her glasses and pretends to be some intellectual who reads "The Economist" and to her that gives her credability.
Kilmeade challenged her and she failed.

I couldn't disagree with you more about the manners. I find it to be quite rude when someone just filibusters, particularly with lies, expecting that just by continuing to talk and never give the other person an opening they can go unchallenged. Where you see Janeane being polite, I saw her attempting to be quite rude.

On the other side, I saw Brian make his point and/or ask a question, and then shut up to give her a chance to respond. When she would, he would challenge her response. He was polite without being a doormat.

There seems to be no correct way to go at it with the charismatic, moderatlely informed gang without taking criticism for being too - whatever, so he got onto her level. It was ugly - and beautiful.

Janeane was still WRONG

...and pretty damned ignorant of the realities of the inspection process. She had it in her head that it's up to the inspectors to find the WMD, which is not the case. Iraq is bound to present the gear for inspection - and of course this hasn't happened.

You chose poorly this time. Kilmeade was not in a state of mind to sit back and let her get the celebrity treatment.

Bio on Brian:

Brian Kilmeade is known for his ability to conduct entertaining interviews. Whether his guest is an 11-year old competing in a fencing match or a top sports celebrity, Kilmeade uses instinct, experience, and his easy-going brand of humor to achieve a meaningful and personal connection with his guest. Working in a New York City has proven to be an advantage for Kilmeade because he has immediate access to the celebrities and stars he brings to radio listeners and TV watchers through his interviews.
 
Television viewers are familiar with Kilmeade as sports anchor, host and reporter on Fox News Channel's morning show Fox & Friends. Now, sports fans across the country will get to know Kilmeade as he co-hosts a live weekend radio show that you can hear on Broadcast Sports. Kilmeade will bring his boundless energy to Broadcast Sports.. Broadcasting live from Manhattan, he will feature interviews, topical discussions,and recaps of the weekend's games.
 
Kilmeade had attained a considerable reputation as a sports industry insider and savvy journalist. His high level of commitment and determination have taken the relatively young Kilmeade to an impressive point in his career.
 
Kilmeade began his career as soon as he finished college. While working for David Letterman, the boss himself advised Kilmeade to find a job that would put him on the air. His ambition landed him a job as a correspondent on Channel One, a daily national high school TV news program.
 
Kilmeade followed his work at Channel One with a move to Southern California, where he hosted a call-in talk show on XTRA AM 690, and co-hosted the Jim Brown Show with the legendary running back. Dealing with a combination of sports, political, and social issues, the Jim Brown Show gave Kilmeade the unique ability to deliver top-flight reporting on a wide variety of topics.
 
A move back east has seen Kilmeade wearing the hats for a sports anchor, co-host, producer, and, prior to his appearance on Fox TV, an anchor, host, and feature reporter for Newsport TV.

Sometimes they present it in TOO entertaining a format. It makes me think sometimes that "Fox and Friends" is just like "Bugs and Daffy and Friends".
