Will Wolf Blitzer be outraged that Gannon lied to him on CNN?
Anyone want to predict how Blitzer will handle informing the public that they were lied to during a live interview last week?

My guess.....he will NOT correct the record. His job was to provide cover for the WH and Gannon.

CNN - Bush's CoverupNewsNetwork.

2. It will be ignored. They generally don't
revisit these stories, especially ones that show their stupidity.

10. Exactly! If it doesn't happen on the news, it doesn't exist!
A "unified field theory" of reality: they report, they decide, what ends up deleted really never existed.

3. Has anybody
sent him the link to Americablog's expose?

He needs to be confronted with the lie preferably publicly and then his reaction or non-reaction to it can be measured.....

13. Something is abuzz about it at CNN though.
Mark Shields just about blew a gasket as he reported his "outrage of the week" on Capital Gang Saturday. You could see it in his eyes and his irritated facial expression as he was reading the scripted blurb with its veiled reference to Gannon (not mentioned by name - gasp!) and the despicible press corps coverup.
CNN should be ashamed to call itself a news organization. It has its nose so far up Fox's ass and is no longer a credible TV news outlet.

31. It was obvious that Shields wanted to say more about Jeffie..
all he could interject was (paraphrasing) how can faux-reporters gain access to the White House briefings - that it was his outrage of the week. The topic appeared to have been blackballed by the Capitol Gang heads and Mark was pissed. Maybe someone can come up with a link.

17. Yup, that's it
Leslie will be mostly upset that folks will point out that Gannon/Guckert/Goodbar lied in his face.

Leslie doesn't mind playing the fool; he minds when people notice how foolish he is.

9. Ya know, if this would have happened under Clinton's watch...
Bllitzer (and/or CNN and the other major news stations) would be live on the white house lawn saying it was only a matter of time before the President was impeached!

He is Pro-Wolf. More precisely, Pro-Wolf Wallet.

16. Leslie Wolf Ironman Blitzer will just IGNORE Gannon's lie to him and stuff
it up his crapper just like he does with every lie that comes out of the bush white house which then he helps to push out of his own mouth.

21. probably not
Wolfie has probably been serviced by "Gannon" anyway and knew all along it was a line he was giving.

24. Professional courtesy
From one whore to another.

Blitzer is in this up to his neck, so you bet he has all the more reason to assist Mr Rove in covering this up for their beloved George W.

25. That is my sense, too. His interview with Gannon last week was a valentine
it had no resemblance whatsoever to a probing interview.

26. I think Gannon has topped him and he was returning the favor.
Geez, I still can't get that dick pic out of my head.

Uggh. Haven't had much presidential porno since Clinton.
