11. keith yes
but tuning in to keith and wading through the cesspool of dumbdown hardballs which is on before keith, and all the other republican circle jerks makes you wonder about msnbc....having said that keith is a real patriot.

14. Can't stomach Hardball
Matthews' breathless questions -- and answering his own questions before the guest has a chance to open their mouth.

One day he was talking about the Swiftie Liars and a lefty guest reminded him that none of those "gentlemen" had served with JK. Matthews, in an "are you f'n kidding me with that??" moment, turns to the righty guest and asks, "Is that true? If that's true, people should know?" Dude, *I* knew. No MSM TV star, me. Sometimes I am sure beyond any doubt, that I am smarter than he is. Yucky, phoo...

7. Why aren't there more like Keith?
The rest of the "reporters" just read what they are told. He is the only msm guy who gets to the "real" stuff

8. this is awful
Pitts should have kept his mouth shut. Now the American people will know that the question came from a journo, and was a plant. The right wing will be all over this. It will be an excuse to discredit the soldier.

9. The whole audience of soldiers cheered the question.....
That needs to be the reply to the inevitable spin from the dittoheads.

10. It's sad that the only way these questions would have ever been asked
Edited on Thu Dec-09-04 02:23 PM by andino
was if someone not in the MSM asked on LIVE TV...

Our government is totally messed up when reporters have to plant legitimate questions in a format such as that. OUR representatives SHOULD be forced to answer these questions without this type of format.

12. Where do YOU live?
Edited on Thu Dec-09-04 02:46 PM by Patsy Stone
That will happen when monkeys fly out of my butt. This is a collusive group of criminals and thugs. They refuse to answer questions and they also refuse to show up when specifically requested to by House Reps. This is all "Me First and the Gimme Gimmes". (Not the band -- although they're great.)

The best part of this is (and yes, I see the point that it will be wildly spun), as someone pointed out, the entire room erupted in cheers. That wasn't a plant.

Is it sad? You betcha! Frankly, it's pathethic.
