Pandering The Tim Russert Way
Tonight on CNBC's The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, Tim Russert, host of NBC's Meet The Press, compared using a picture of President George Bush hugging a little girl who lost her mother in the World Trade Center on 9/11 as a campaign ad to the widows Ann Coulter complains about in her latest book, Godless.
In case you are living in a vacuum and have not heard about the uproar over Ms. Coulter's comments, her point is that the widows came out making vile assertions, telling outrageous lies, and using asunder half-truths to blame President Bush and his administration for the deaths of their husbands, yet the main stream media refrained from confronting them about their remarks because it would have been viewed as an attack on the not-so-poor (virtually everyone who lost a relative became a millionaire because of the settlements received) grieving widows.
So this is Russert's truth....
A campaign ad that uses a picture of the President showing compassion toward a young girl who lost her mother is the same as a group of women telling lies and half-truths about the President that the media was afraid to question.
And Russert would have us believe that he is unbiased....roflmao
Donny 'Big Idea' Deutsch mentioned that, while he felt Ms. Coulter's point was vile, sick, repulsive and filled with venom, he would refrain from calling Ms. Coulter a name reserved for 'promiscuous women' for fear it would increase his ratings.....roflmfas
Note to Donny: Nothing could increase The Big Idea's ratings except a new host. As a matter of fact, his ratings are currently so low that they may have gone up 100% when I tuned in.
