Lynn Cheney in CNN Sitdown, Slapdown: Do You Want America to Win?
Drudge Report ^ | Oct 27 2006

Posted on 10/27/2006 3:38:18 PM PDT by Dog

Lynne Cheney, wife of Vice President Dick Cheney, took on CNN Friday evening during an interview with anchorman Wolf Blitzer.

Transcript:

CHENEY: You made a point last night of a man who had a bookstore in london where radical islamists gathered. Who was in afghanistan when the taliban were there. Who went to pakistan. You know, i think that you might be a little careful before you declare this as a person with clean hands.

WOLF: You are receiving to the cnn "broken government" special. This is the one john king reported on last night.

CHENEY: Right there, wolf. Broken government. What kind of stance is that? Here we are. We are a country where we have been mightily challenged over the past six years. We've been through 9/11, we've been through katrina. The president and the vice president inherited oo recession. We are in a country where the economy is healthy. That's not broken. This government has acted very well. We have tax cuts responsible for the healthy economy. We are a country that was attacked five years ago. We haven't been attacked since. What this government has done is effective. That's not broken government. So, you know, i shouldn't let media bias surprise me, but i worked at cnn once. I watched a program last night.

WOLF: You worked in cross fire.

CHENEY: And i was troubled.

WOLF: All right. Well that was probably the purpose, to get people to think. To get people to discuss these issues. Because --

CHENEY: well, all right. Wolf, i'm here to talk about my book. But if you want to talk about distortion --

WOLF: we'll talk about your book.

CHENEY: Right, but what is cnn doing? Running terrorist tape of terrorists shooting americans. I mean, i thought duncan hunter asked you a very good question, and you didn't answer it. Do you want us to win?

WOLF: The answer of course is we want the united states to win. We are americans. There's no doubt about that.

CHENEY: Then why are you running terrorist propaganda?

WOLF: Well all do respect, this is not terrorist propaganda.

CHENEY: Oh, wolf.

WOLF: This is reporting the news. Which is what we do, we are not partisan.

CHENEY: Where did you get the film?

WOLF: We got the film, look, this is an issue that has been widely discussed. This is an issue we reported on extensively. We make no apology ies for showing that. That was a very carefully-considered decision why we did that. And i think, i think --

CHENEY: well i think it's shocking.

WOLF: If you are a serious journalist, you want to report the news. Sometimes the news is good, sometimes the news isn't so good.

CHENEY: But wolf, there's a difference between news and terrorist propaganda.

The Prowler reported there was an email exchange between someone from CNN to the terrorists....that those in CNN who have seen it claim ...the email would shock Americans at what CNN has become....ANTI- AMERICAN.

Woooooollllllllfffffffffiiiiiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeee...

You would have had to have been there!

This guy couldn't care less who wins. He can still be the reporter no matter which side does. That's his logic.

Sick guy doesn't realize there won't be any reporters under the terrorists, or for that matter the dreamed of leftist society.

Those of us with brains know the MSM does not want us to win. This is exactly how all conservatives should treat the MSM liberals. More and more Americans will awaken to their agenda and turn away from them and democrats. Hammering the MSM will hasten theirs and the democrats party demise. I am proud of Lynn Cheney. She is a class act.

I think we need Lynn Cheney in Congress or the Senate.

My daughter managed a beauty salon in a major Southern city and had the pleasure of having Mrs. Cheney as a client. All she could say was, "what a lady, a real lady not a phoney." They talked family and children and my daughter just thought she was the greatest and she has come in contact with many of the high and mighty set.
