Jeff Gannon of Talon News, $50 Journalism degree!
:wtf:

This guy gets called on regularly by Scott MacClellan, and gets picked by Bush in a rare news conference. Seems he got his journalism Degree for $50.


(Did Bush call on him knowing hed get a bailout question? Explain why he wasnt interrupted during his question like so many of the other reporters. I have to conclude that this guy is a planted shill and that the CIC went into hiding behind Gannons partisan question.)

Take one look at Talon News website and youll see that its just a rudimentary website with links to other right-wing websites. Are they even a news organization?

Q. Thank you. Senate Democrats have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines and Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet, in the same breath, they say that Social Security is rock-solid and theres no crisis there. How are you going to work you said youre going to reach out to these people how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?

Rush Limbaugh questioned the accuracy of the statements within the question. Limbaugh contends Reid never said "soup lines" and Gannon must have gotten it from listening to Rush's radio show. Nice vetting, dildo. BTW, Gannon is a major critic of CBS and routinely refers to the disputed memos as fakes or fraudulent like a good, little whore.


:argh: As though they don't get enough pandering from real journalists.

3. More evidence in the mounting scandal......................
of "Pundit Payola". These assholes manufacture the news then distribute it to their paid whores.
But the American people think bush is such a "nice" guy, "amiable", "just one of the boys". He's "one of the boys" if your "boys" are criminal, fascist, deluded and completely without any redeeming social value at all.

4. Omigod!
I heard that question and wondered who the asshole was! It was a perfect example of the kind of 'journalists' we have today - shills for the VRWC.

Now I get it...he's another one of their 'fake' journalists. I wonder if they're going to run him in fake newsclips next?

5. Jesus. This is actually pretty scary when you think about it.... Shrub
is so effing incompetent, that during an oh-so-rare- news "conference", he can't even field questions from the hand-picked
sell-outs in attendance, and they actually have to send in a ringer.
Who is REALLY in charge??????

6. well no wonder msm is so pissed at the bloggers
I mean, who do those bloggers think they are, spreading real news AND without the proper training. Now all you bloggers take down this info so that you too can claim a degree in journalism.

8. Gosh. I want one, too.
Wonder if I send them $75, they'll make mine a "Master's"?

Of course, we all know who Gannon's master is.
