In which Newt eviscerates CNN’s John King

January 20, 2012

There’s no other way to describe it: John King, moderating last night’s debate in Charleston, SC, opened with a question about salacious allegations made by Gingrich’s second ex-wife. The former Speaker then gutted King and the MSM in front of the entire nation, calling them out for their biased coverage. It was a thing of beauty, an instant classic. The only thing missing was King falling to his knees in tears to beg for mercy.

Enjoy, my friends:

Now, I’m not much of a fan in Gingrich, though I admire his intellectual acuity; he has a lot of good ideas (and a lot of bad ones). But, were he to become the nominee, I would so look forward to the debates with Obama. The president would be reduced to a quivering mound of Jello.

And I’d need extra popcorn.

CNN plumbs new depths in spinelessness

January 18, 2011

…by apologizing for a guest using the word “crosshairs.” I kid you not:

Click the image to watch the video, but here’s the transcript:

“Before we go to break, I want to make a quick point. We were having a discussion about the Chicago mayoral race. My friend Andy Shaw used the term ‘in the crosshairs’ in talking about the candidates. We’re trying, we’re trying to get away from that language. Andy is a good friend, he’s covered politics for a long time, but we’re trying to get away from that kind of language.”

Great. Let’s keep the false idea alive that violent (read: “Right-wing”) rhetoric was somehow responsible for an apolitical nut committing mass-murder at a Tucson shopping center. What’s next, John? Apologizing for showing Sarah Palin’s image, just in case the mere sight of her incites violence? Are you guys going to post a disclaimer with reruns of “Crossfire?”

Just when I thought my nausea-meter for political correctness couldn’t go any higher, CNN finds a way to red-line it.
