Kurtz got the call from Rove, now stretches payola story to include
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 02:53 PM by blm
Carville and Begala for taking Kerry's side during Crossfire. They actually lingered on a tape of Kerry the way they do to imply someone is definitely a part of the story.

WHAT THE FOCK??????

He had to stretch so far for that one to act as if "all" politicians do it, somehow, and not just the focking WHITE HOUSE, fer chrissakes.

When Karl calls, Kurtz bends over.

1. Carville's pedigree is not disguised in any way shape or form
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 02:55 PM by NewYorkerfromMass
I am not sure about Begala but this is a stretch and a half and then some.

Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 03:27 PM by ooglymoogly
four minutes of paid adver for toothpaste or whatever then five minutes of paid info promoting some politician or government agenda or freepaganda or whatever. time to pull the plug on that sucker. im tired of these whores and whorehouses calling themselves reputable journalists, thinking we're just going to sit there and soak it up. we are getting srewed from every angle.

3. Why don't we emphasize the paying of TAX dollars to do this?
Why doesn't Howie get that?

18. Doing things in public with your own money gets a Howie Kurtz blast as
deceptive?

Oh Howie - you were doing so good - how did Rove know you had no spine?

7. Really? Kerry used US Treasury funds?
I'll be darned! Senators can write checks on taxpayer funds right out of the Treasury huh? That's the scandal, isn't it? Not that these "journalists" got caught taking payola, but that the payola was tax dollars.

What a stretch for some semblance of false equivalency. If Kurtz had any integrity, he'd be ashamed.

8. Well, if Howie doesn't do what
Rove says, he won't get invited to any swanky Washington cocktail parties. Poor Howie. Same goes for that bitch-woman on Capital Gang.

9. My advice to Kurtz ...We are watching better not cash any tax dollars
checks anytime soon .

It is about TAX Dollars being used for Propaganda
that is the LAW that has been broken .

10. assuming that what Rove said was true
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 03:01 PM by radfringe
then you also have to assume that ALL or the VAST MAJORITY of journalists, reporters, pundints and talking heads are also on the take

so why should we believe anything being reported? it's all propaganda and so much poop

my rule of thumb when viewing, listening, or reading the news is to automatically dis-believe half of it and then question the rest

the news business is not in the business of providing news, it's in the business to make money period -- so any "news" that sells is fit to print/broadcast -- doesn't matter if it's true or not - it only has to sell the ad space

meanwhile -- how much did Kurtz get to write that piece for Rove?

13. What does that prick do? Threaten to take your first-born?
Begala and Carville are on a political TV broadcast! They aren't receiving $ to promote someone's agenda! If that's the prick's new beef...what about Novak and Tucker? What a fool! What's with Kurtz? Now ethical journalism includes retracting a story simply because a bully made a phone call? OMG! What's the matter with all of these spineless assholes? Unbelievable!

19. Didn't Begala HEAR what Kurtz said? He didn't say a word about it on
