CNN's Kyra Phillips: "a major smear campaign going on" against Rove
Amazing!!!!

CNN counter-attacks the critics and defends Rove by calling this scandal a MAJOR SMEAR CAMPAIGN" against Rove.

See the video at Media Matters:

2. As I'm sure Ken Starr would say,
we're just trying to get to the facts.

Oh wait. Karl Rove is a Republican? Ken Starr would never say that about a Republican.

6. I'm reminded of that old Adlai Stevenson quote:
"I offer my opponents a bargain: if they will stop telling lies about us, I will stop telling the truth about them."

12. This is CNN's
smear campaign against the democrats, and against all clear-headed patriotic Americans who see that Karl Rove, at the very least, provided dangerous information to a reporter whom he knew would want to use the information in some shape or form.

Kyra smears honest men and women in order to protect Bush. Why?

13. The talking head on Headline news interviewed
a reporter from the Post and she was smirking through the whole interview....

At least she said we shall see if any of this resonates with the people in the heartland.....

Over on MSNBC, that awfull blonde that is on with Ron Regean showed herself to be a complete and utter hack...

When they showed a Washington Square type thing, you know four people on the screen, everyone laughed when ron quiped that if the shoe was on the other foot, the repub's would be doing the same thing....

But you cold see she was trying hard not to laugh, not to break ranks,,,,,

Oh the horror of it all,,,,

14. These Media WHORES make me sick
I'm near foaming at the mouth with anger at Kyra Phillips. She should be fired for such comments. Saying that holding a man (I use this word loosely in connection with *) to his words is a smear campaign ><

15. Fitzgerald needs to subpoena her to appear before the Grand Jury
as she is apparently in the possession of secret information that would clear Rove of apparent treason and clear up this entire leak affair.

20. Here's the way it works, Kyra
When someone brings up false or irrelevant or badly outdated stuff in an attempt to make someone's current status look worse, that's a smear.

When a recitation of recent facts is going on, and those facts continue to have relevance and impact on the present situation, that's called an investigation, and is a legitimate inquiry into potentially criminal actions.

Glad I could clear that up for you, Kyra. Don't be afraid to call me when your little brain gets in a jam. Always willing to help out members of the Fourth Estate when they're in over their heads. By the way, even though the spigot says "HOT", it's not really hot to the touch.

24. CNN has done that many times before
Edited on Tue Jul-12-05 07:37 PM by Julius Civitatus
Whenever one of their idiots say something stupid, they scrub it.

Some honesty, right there.

25. I heard her say it!
I hope lots of others heard it, too! She must have thought she auditioning for a job at Fox. While CNN is busy scrubbing the transcript, they should also "scrub" MS Repig Phillips from their list of employees. That was the most blatant statement of opinion that I've ever heard an anchor make!

23. No Kyra. A smear is spreading lies. What we are trying to do is get the
truth to be told.

Kerry's Viet Service record: TRUTH
Swift Boat Liars Stories: LIES.
Bunkerboy's Service Record: LIES.
Michael Moore's Film: TRUTH

Everything the White House has said for the past 5 years: LIES
What we've been shouting and YOU claim as Conspiracy Theories: TRUTH

Got it now?
Any clearer?

Hope it helps.

Your welcome.
Tanklv

26. I gave them an earful.
I usually don't like writing CNN because I don't want them to think I watch their shitty network, but I made an exception for this one.

30. Jon Stewart played a snip of her
one time.

She was laughing about something, but not asking the right questions.
