CNN: Clarke's coworkers on his character, credibility.....NOW
they keep promoing this look at Clarke, centering on his credibility.

they're promising to have former associates comment on what he is/was like.

I wonder if they'll do what David Broder did, and use the 911 Commission report to bolster his credibility (a rare readable column by that senile old goort who had trouble staying awake during Gore's nomination speech....what a dick)

it's on NOW

2. what a surprise......quoting a long clip of Frist

3. knew how to get things done, but had no second gear
he cried Wolfe....nobody listened to him

Gideon Rose said both WJC AND Bush bear blame for not paying more attention to him

4. that's IT! worthless, really.....nothing new, just a few new faces
commenting on him from their own POVs

it was more balanced than I'd thought it would be, actually much more balanced than the SMEARJOB that I saw Wolf and that Kingshill perpetrate on him recently.....the one that Krugman tore apart

they HAD to get to a bit on ABBA (NOT anybody but Bush Ass), and their horrendo musical

good choice of priorities

7. good question....just made it up
but now that you mention it, wasn't that the name of Michael Rennie's robot in the Day the Earth Stood Stock Still?

klaatu baraada nikto, or something like that

6. If you ask me, the broadcast media's credibility is on the line
not Clarke's.

8. This was actually somewhat supportive of Clarke ...
Edited on Wed Apr-07-04 05:10 PM by Trajan
From what I seen, (which wasnt everything), Clarke's comments were generally supported by the commentary ...

10. Maybe Wolf trying to regain a shred of credibility --
after his Clarke "weird-aspects" debacle.
