CNN used to be the best opportunity for fair and balanced cable news has followed the CNBC path and tanked for the right. Anyone see the interview between John King and Satan teh other day? Here is an exchange:
KING: When you came to office, the unemployment rate in the country was 4.2 percent, when you left it was 7.6 percent. The number of Americans in poverty when you arrived, just under 33 million, over 37 million when you left. The number without health insurance, a little over 41 million when you came, over 45 million approaching 46 million when you left. And you came with a budget surplus of $128 billion and in the final year, the budget deficit was a record $1.3 trillion. So what would you say to someone out there watching this who is saying, why should they listen to you?
Cheney: Well, there are all kinds of arguments to be made on that point. But there's something that is more important than the specific numbers you're talking about, and that had to be priority for our administration. Eight months after we arrived, we had 9/11. We had 3,000 Americans killed one morning by al Qaeda terrorists here in the United States. We immediately had to go into the wartime mode. We ended up with two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Some of that is still very active. We had major problems with respect to things like Katrina, for example. All of these things required us to spend money that we had not originally planned to spend, or weren't originally part of the budget. Stuff happens. And the administration has to be able to respond to that, and we did."
King offered no challenges....no redirection to the actual question...no aghast look at how deranged of an answer that was. just let cheney spew his contempt for screwing things up so badly for 8 years.
Cheney wants to already set up Obama for a terrorist attack when he should instead be taking responsiblity for sleeping through 9-11 instead of trying to take a heroes role.
Liberal media....yeah. Let Jon Stewart interview Satan.
The con'ed still want to blame Obama when the economic numbers are right there. cheney uses Katrina as an excuse for the ruined economy....well, maybe if you did something about Katrina....

Re: liberal media
King has always been a softball tosser and has served up most of his easy dingers to those on the left, so please save the outrage about their move to the right.
CNN . . . Balanced? LOL.
