PBS has swallowed the Koolaid!
I just watched in utter disbelief an interview with Lamont, and then Lieberman hosted by Gwen Eifel on the News Hour.
Her questions to Ned Lamont were RNC inspired "How much of your own money did you spend?" She interrupted his answers several times in a combative manner, then she gave Joe Lieberman a pass on everything he said, she let him ramble on for minutes saying nothing.

It was as disgraceful an exhibition of bias as Fox news could deliver, I am truly shocked, PBS has gone over to the dark side for sure. I am utterly convinced and they will not get anymore $ from me.

It's so sad :cry:

1. Didn't mention the 8 million that Joe kicked down, eh?
Outspent Lamont 2/1.

2. Sickening
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 03:58 AM by hawkowl88
PBS and NPR have become so milquetoast and placating of the current regime as to make me vomit up my cornflakes. Jim Lehr's program provides no substance. He simply allows guests to parrot the most ludicrous bullshit imaginable with no criticsm whatsoever. There simply is no hope left for t.v. news.

The internet is the future of news and thankfully, at least for now, the "far left bloggers" are the heavyweight force in this medium. Let the rethugs have the am radio and t.v. the sun is setting on their day.

3. Which show were you watching?
I don't remember which show Gwen Eifel hosts, but I do know it has always tended to be oriented toward republicans.

However, a lot of the other programs have not gone over to the dark side and still retain an independent identity and distribute real information not White House press releases.

4. Well, what do you expect from Gwen?
She is best buddies with Condi after all.

5. I posted over a year ago what a partisan witch she was. She doesn't
even bother to hide it.

6. You ain't seen nuthin' yet. Katie Couric will probably ask Lamont where
he buys his suits.
