    Vice President Joe Biden, going further than any other high-ranking American official to date in questioning the validity of last Friday’s election, said Sunday that “there's some real doubt" that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was legitimately re-elected as president of Iran.
  • King Abdullah's Hypocritical Torture Discourse on Meet The Press

    04/27/2009 8:18:16 AM PDT · by Shellybenoit · 4 replies · 297+ views
    Yesterday, Jordan's King Abdullah the Diminutive was interviewed on Meet the Press. Along with his usual discourse of "the Israel/Palestinian issue is the cause of all problems of the world" the King also had some choice words about the "enhanced interrogation techniques that the US practiced the Islamist terrorist. Kind of strange though, since the Hypocritical King is a big proponent of torture in his own country Jordan (the original Palestinian State).... ..King Abdullah, the Hypocritical said definitively that his country does not torture. Since Mr. Gregory would never challenge the King when he is bashing the US, I guess...
  • Why President Obama Skipped 'Meet the Press'(T-E-L-E-P-R-O-M-P-T-E-R!)

    THE SHOW "Meet the Press," hosted by David Gregory. WHEN|WHERE Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WNBC/4 REASON TO WATCH That is the question, and one President Barack Obama apparently asked himself, too, as he bypassed TV's venerable Sunday news institution for another show on the very same network - "The Tonight Show" - where he'll appear tonight to talk about the stimulus package. WHAT IT'S ABOUT The president's decision to slip past "Meet the Press" would seem like a massive diss of new host Gregory - in the job three months - but this is politics, and politics is to...
  • President’s economic advisor looks laughable on Meet the Press, but no one’s laughing

    [video of interview, and Krusty the Clown] The Obama administration is beginning to look like one of those clown cars. The door flies open and dozens of clowns pour out. Christin Romer, the latest clown and chairwoman of the President’s Council of Economic Advisors, attempted to snow host David Gregory on Sunday’s Meet The Press. Gregory wasn’t buying. GREGORY: So back then during the campaign when Senator McCain talked about the strong fundamentals of the economy, it was then-candidate Obama and his team that roundly criticized McCain, saying he was out of touch, he didn’t get it, he didn’t understand...

    Here is video of a Meet the Press panel yesterday discussing Rick Santelli's attack on the Obama Mortgage Plan last week. Surprisingly, the panel, including moderator David Gregory, point out the practical truth in the comments made by Santelli, and they agree that his comments have struck a nerve, based on the reaction of the White House. . . . . .

    After the flap caused during the campaign when he famously told Joe the Plumber that he wanted to "spread the wealth," I figured Barack Obama wouldn't be making such a suggestion again anytime soon. I figured wrong. Pres.-elect Obama to Tom Brokaw on today's Meet The Press: "I think the important principle, because sometimes when we start talking about taxes, and I say I want a more balanced tax code, people think, well, that's class warfare. No. It turns out that our economy grows best when the benefits of the economy are most widely spread. And that has been true...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - NBC News picked veteran Tom Brokaw to moderate "Meet the Press" through the 2008 U.S. election season, NBC News President Steve Capus said on Sunday. Tim Russert, the longtime host of the Sunday morning news program who was known for his interviews of leading U.S. political figures, died of a heart attack on June 13. He was also the television network's Washington bureau chief.

    NBC anchor Brian Williams will be the first to fill in for Tim Russert as the host for "Meet the Press" this Sunday, the network said today. Russert died suddenly last week of cardiac arrest. After Williams, several different NBC news personalities are expected to rotate as the host of the Sunday morning interview show until a permanent replacement is named - sometime later this year or early next.

    Commentary Editor's Note: During the next week, will do a series of columns on the state of journalism in America today. We will look into the failures of the dominant media and the lack of adherence to journalistic integrity on the Internet. The profession of journalism truly lost one of its most distinguished representatives with the sudden death of Tim Russert. The host of NBC's Meet The Press had developed into one of the best interviewers in the dominant media and the profession cannot afford to lose such individuals who ply their trade with dignity and pride. However, the...

    For a moment, let's step away from the commentary, per se, and focus on the commentators. Liberals love to chide Fox News for its alleged conservative bias. So why don't we see, when it comes to being fair and balanced, how this morning's Fox News Sunday panel stacked up against that of its main competitor, Meet the Press? Here are the line-ups--you be the judge. MEET THE PRESS Host–Tim Russert Panel * David Broder–Washington Post columnist * John Dickerson–Slate * Gwen Ifill–PBS * Andrea Mitchell–NBC * Richard Wolffe–Newsweek

    Calling Washington, D.C., "corporate-occupied territory," consumer advocate Ralph Nader launched his fifth campaign for the presidency Sunday. "I'm running for president," said Nader in an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press." Nader downplayed the impact he might have on the ultimate outcome of the race, saying "if Democrats can't landslide the Republicans this year, they ought to just wrap up, close down, emerge in a different form."

JOHN MCCAIN: Yeah, but the lesson is that it isn't going to come, it isn't going to come. The lesson is that they want the borders secured first. View video here.
