I can't believe it
I am watching Joe Scarborough and he is saying that the deal with Armstrong Williams is just like if the Clintons had paid Matt Lauer and NBC to promote one of their pet projects. He also called for a complete investigation!!

5. I would be stunned
if any investigation came of this. I have a funny feeling when chimp took office in 2001 a whole gang of psuedojournalists moved from Scaife's payroll to chimp's payroll.

15. Was the atheist balanced by a minsiter, or did he
get the spotlight to himself for a segment or two?

4. So I shouldn't get in the habit of watching him?
He made me mad years ago and I just never turn him on any more.

13. My experience with watching Joe S. has been Republican
spin on 20 shows, something to prove his independence on show 21.

So it's up to you whether that is worth your time.

9. What I can't figure out is why is Williams hitting all the talk shows
Edited on Sat Jan-08-05 03:54 AM by JohnnyRingo
...Only to be repeatedly (and consistantly) admonished?

Does he think that this will be viewed as some sort of post-disclosure, and everything will be OK?

BTW Ya gotta wonder how much they pay Limbaugh.

14. Few people wanted him on their shows before.
Maybe he figures this is free advertising.

16. He's probably being paid
to take the heat off the administration.
