Still, one does get the impression that Wolf Blitzer just feeds Pat lines like this from the October 9, 2005 broadcast of CNN Late Edition With Wolf Blitzer:

BLITZER: ... thanks very much for joining us.

I want to get to Harriet Miers in a moment but you're a minister. You see what's going on in the world today in Pakistan, in India, Afghanistan, an earthquake, maybe 20,000 people dead, maybe twice that number; we don't have a count. Hurricanes in the United States and around the world, a tsunami a little bit less than a year or so ago in Southeast Asia. What's happening?

ROBERTSON: Wolf, I might say you're very perceptive to pick up the key in this.

Its scary to hear someone carry-on like Pat. But its sort of strange to realize that Pat and Wolf Blitzer go way back together. Yep! Wolf used to work for Pat Robertson's CBN way back when Pat was setting up his news bureau and Wolf was the 700 Clubs reporter from the Middle East. He was a lot younger in those days, but in those beginning days Pat exposed Wolf Blitzer to a viewing audience that topped the Nielsen ratings at 28.7 million monthly viewers! Thats a great way to launch ones career. But Wolf Blitzer likes to keep that part of his career kind of quiet. He doesnt list the 700 Clubs news bureau in his biography. He doesnt tell CNNs audience that Pat was like an angel to him when he was just an independent reporter starting out. But those of us who watched Pats show could never forget Wolf Blitzers reports. He was presented to us as such an expertwe were just so proud of him! And look how high hes gone. Youd think hed give Pat a little credit. No doubt he says Thanks by inviting him on CNN!
