60 Minutes was freeped!
Stahl said the overwhemling volume of letters were strongly negative and then read three freep classics and one positive.

do you think someone should clue in 60 Minutes?

maybe a link to a thread promoting the email attack?

3. When you get the link...
copy it so the freeps don't pool the thread as they're known for..they like to hide the evidence.

5. Unbelievable
"Dick Clarke should be tried for treason and if guilty face a firing squad and 60 Minutes should be tried as his accomplice and forced to pay a large fine . . . "

"Why can't you be fair and balanced like Fox News?" (This is hilarious)

9. Here's the third one
"Where is your honor? Where is your integrity? Is it really true that you are a propaganda arm of the liberal elite?" Please. Wallace just finished doing a puff piece on Judge Pickering.

And the second letter started with: "Using 60 Minutes to promote a Bush-bashing book is reprehensible."

12. Those mails were chosen on purpose
They truly reflect the feelings of the misinformed and the far right wackos out there. Frankly, I think they cast bush and his supporters in a terrible light. (albeit, a true reflection of the thoughts and feelings of the lunatic fringe!) I hope those mails inflame others who hear them to more actively support the cause of ousting Bush and pals on their collective arses next November!

14. i agree with you.... there was *something*
about her presentation that suggested that.

she chose letters that made the writers look VERY bad and ended up with a very sensible, positive one.

in a way she said: is this really the majority opinion?

maybe it's time for a 60 Minutes piece on FR. if the repubs are going to call the Dems "angry" - expose the real hatred.

16. whether she was *trying* or not
she did.

I mean, 'drag him away and shoot him' ???

and the dig in using, 'fair and balanced like Fox News'

I think she knew exactly what she was doing and it was a big FU to the freepers - no matter how much they high-five each other over 'winning'....

19. I sent an email to 60 Minutes this evening
thanking them for airing the Clarke interview and mentioning the fact that some right-wingers like to overwhelm places and polls with negative emails. I didn't mention FR but I figured they got the message, which is that we know they know, so they have no excuse for saying that "the public has spoken!"

Over in freep-ville tonight they were talking about ganging up on the commercial sponsors of tonight's 60 Minutes. They didn't like the way it went.
