Posted on 10/12/2006 3:42:19 PM PDT by katieanna
Brian Williams of NBC news just made mention of the AP investigation regarding Senator Reid as he reported on the House page scandal. Many wondered if the mainstream media would mention it at all.
Quid pro quo ROFL
Brit Hume had a story too...keep your fingers crossed....
I am sooooo loving the crumbling of the MSM...! And the left.
When will Reid do the right thing and resign his seat???
I saw it on CNN hours ago
Methinks Reid is in trouble. The AJC carried the strory too.
The Reid Connections
Mark Levin said something about Biden saying Reid will step down next month. I didn't catch the full details.
USA Today reported it this morning as well. I just was interested as to whether the media would cover it with the ferver they've given Foley.
OK and so the GOP leaders need to be trumpeting "Harry Reid should resign his position as leader until a full investigation into his inappropriate handling of land deals." Why do we have to be so nice.... DAMN just DAMN.
Do you notice a glaring "Fair and Balanced", tit for tat format tonight... I mean more than normal?
I'm not getting excited that it gets mentioned once.
If they stick with the story, that's different.

Nothing noble about it, however. Self-preservation eventually trumps politics. When more and more people tune out the MSM, it begins to deprive them of the luxury of their viewpoint.
I mean, politics is okay and all, but a man's gotta make the yacht payments.
I read where ABC,NBC, CBS and CNN had a combined total of over 125 stories on their channels over the past few weeks on Foley alone. Not, quiet quid pro quo.
"I mean, politics is okay and all, but a man's gotta make the yacht payments."
How true indeed!
More details about Reid stepping down, por favor!
Heck of a Family Business he has going there.
His stepping down...Biden speaking of it has been quietly discussed for several months now.
>>>>>>"Reid will step down next month"<<<<<
Was it a joke or?
Not "MSM" enough until it is front-paged in the NYTimes...
I just forwarded a tip to ABC News as they failed to address the story or to admit that their news coverage is highly biased in favor of the 'rats. MSM need all the help we can give them.
Why? Is there a governors election in Nevada this year? Are they hoping that there will be a dem governor to appoint his replacement?
I sent three e-mails to FOX (Hume, Hannity, and programming)comparing two weeks of non-stop Foley coverage, vs. nary a whisper about Harry Reid's land deals.
Let's hope so! I guess he's going to kick and scream till the bloody end just like others in his party, rather than resign for the good of the party AND his country.
By the by...NV has a GOP governor, Guinn.
*Maniacal laugh* It's going to be fun watching them eat their own.
We have a better chance of being hit by:
Two sentences max. I watched.
it followed a long, detailed report on Foley's aide testifying for 5 hours today, who will testify tomorrow, and showwed clip of Bush campaigning with Hastert today.
There was speculation floating a couple weeks ago that Reid would step down so Hillary Clinton could become the Dem leader in the Senate.
There were 2 theories on that:
1 - That the party were dangling that carrot for Hillary to not run for the presidency.
2 - That Hillary would prefer being Senate Majority Leader (assuming Dems take control of the Senate), as that would be a better platform for her 'leadership' than a polarizing a presidential run.
There had evidently been some flak about a 'D' after foley's name at one time, so they checked their archives.
A 'D' was shown after Nixon, Michael Jackson, and several others.
One minute story...tomorrow, NOTHING!
BFD. I'll be satisfied when they run 3 special reports a day on Reid. Of course I'll be satisfied when my wife lets me have a live in 25 YO girl friend. About equal likelihood for both of those situations to occur.
Will link back to this...
talk of Harry Reid stepping down has nothing to do with his land deals and it' s not new.
"August 03, 2006
"...Some high level Democratic Party political insiders have shared with TWN details of a potential shift in vectors for several of the major political stars in that party.
First of all, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, whom most give high marks for the manner in which he has stewarded the Dems in the Senate despite the absence of a clear Democratic Party chief, has sent private signals to Senator Hillary Clinton and other stalwarts of the party that he "would like to" step down from his post in early 2009. Reid has not stated definitively that he will -- but he apparently prefers "whipping" the Party from behind and the side rather than serving as commander-in-chief on the Senate floor.
What Reid is offering Senator Hillary Clinton is his total, robust support to succeed him as Senate Majority Leader if she elects not to pursue the Democratic nomination for President."...
Biden said that last January. I wouldn't be surprised if Biden leaked the story.
Thank goodness I was sitting down when I read this! And smarmy Brian Williams, at that!
I saw that when it happened. :-)
And for the dull of mind, I'm not excusing Foley.
The same point can be made, you can't defeat your political opponent by being nice.
That would be an awesome film.
