28. Will she "get back to us" about her accusation that Dems took money...
Edited on Tue Sep-05-06 09:58 AM by KansDem
...from Abramoff?

Last January, she had Howard Dean on and made that accusation. Dean fervently denied it, and she concluded that she'd have to look into it and get back with us.

That was 8 months ago. Maybe tonight's the night?

With Today hosts' record of silence on conservative falsehoods, Couric chided Dean for accurate statement

Summary: NBC's Katie Couric wrongly challenged Howard Dean when he made the accurate statement that "all these folks involved in getting money" from Jack Abramoff "are Republicans." However, Couric and Matt Lauer have often failed to challenge guests who assert conservative falsehoods or make misleading claims that enhance conservative positions.
