Way to go Matt! Keep some honesty in the media and hold these weasels accountable. It's nice to see a few people still haven't lost their mind.
Victoria Nuland is another one of the rude, dismissive, evasive Obamadrones who offers nothing significant to reports and those who seek the truth. I wonder where these drones are trained... obediance school?
There is going to come a time now that Obama has been 're-selected', where his Marxist agenda will become so blatant that not even the most liberal reporter will be able to carry his water, without at least having to question it once in a while.
Oh, there will always be a few but the hypocrisy of their comments will render them irrelevant in the eyes of thinking people. Those who plan on being employed 4 years from now, are going to take a 'slightly' more balanced view of things.
I've got a degree in Telecommunications/Journalism and a (long ago expired) Broadcasters License. I suspect we are going to see a very subtle shift in reporting in the next 4 years, not something you'll notice unless you're looking for it. 'The left' is the establishment now and reporters who plan on making a name for them selves, the way Woodward and Bernstein did in the Watergate days, are going to have to do it by taking on 'the establishment'. ;-)
I understand where you (and Halpern) are coming from. Just keep in mind what I said about the 'establishment/anti-establishment' thing and watch closely. I'm not saying I'm correct, only that I have my suspicions based on over 4 decades of media observation.
I don't see it, the Left doesn't tolerate dissension in the ranks. MSNBC is as much a party "discipline" enforcer as anything else, ridicule and ostracism being their preferred methods. See: halperin, mark.
Conservatives are the only true enemy of the Left, they'll speak out forcefully against us all day long...
HUH? The mainstream media is finally waking up? Their silence for the past 4 years….following and worshiping this Pied Piper has now given us another 4 years.…. May God help us… we are in for ONE bumpy ride!!
These people should be put in jail. She doesn't understand the question because she refuses to answer. What do you know we found a reporter with cast iron guts. Nuland is Obamas puppet.
one thing this admin and the state dept. are doing is not support the security of the American people, never mind Israel. Another bump on the road, rocket shot into Israel, another bump on the road.
Who has that brave soul's back?????
Wow, he's my new hero.
What a happy day if all journalists actually started to act like journalists instead of ovomit lap dogs.
She looks like she's about to cry. Good, because lots of us and others have been crying lately. Good for him for asking real questions. I'm kind of shocked.
Y'all notice the others in the background...not one of them had the stones to even look up like most men would have, they just hang their heads like broke dick dogs and pretend they haven't sold their souls to the devil!
What crawled up that reporters butt? He better watch it or the Obama administration will have it removed for him. He is supposed to make nice with everyone in that administration.
If I am not mistaken don't the reporters take a class on how to pucker their lips and plant them on the great one's backside? See what happens when they remove them from that region. They actually get to see other things around them that may be more important and much more significant than how many different ways they can pucker up.
I found it quite refreshing to see the spokespersons frustration with the reporters questions and just loved his dogged pursuit of an answer that was not a talking point. Seeing this clip gave me hope that there are reporters still doing what was envisioned by the founding fathers. The frustration coming from the spokesperson was nothing that you and I feel since the sanctified one's reelection. Ours is a million times worse.
Please excuse me for my sarcasm, but I am still getting over the election and counting the many ways that our government will have their way with our liberty. I refuse to swallow that bitter pill.
ahhhh... someone finally grew a pair at the AP.
I guess he decided that maybe his time in Journo school wasn't meant to see the news cycle dominated by the nation's lack of twinkies.
Me thinks the press will now go more on the attacking of the administration because that POS doesn't need them anymore and they will find that the majority of them will no longer be needed and thrown to the curb... watch.
The administration's arrogance will be as apparent as a building falling in the middle of ... "Insert big city name here..."
Allies on both sides?...
Let's see how this concludes.
The Muslim Brotherhood leader of Egypt who called Israel a terrorist nation is a friend of BHObama.
The Jewish leader of Israel who has called the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization is a friend of BHObama.
So, BHObama, aka Barack O'Clause, is the, uh, "broker"? who will bring Christmas, uh, I mean, Hanukkah, uh, I mean, Ramadan, uh, I mean, simple peace and harmony between Israel and the Muslim Brotherhood?
The same Muslim Brotherhood that wants the genocide of the nation of Israel and ALL Jewish people on earth?
Will Barack O'Clause
1 - bring both sides together?
2 - keep both sides apart?
Somethin' don't not make sense with this "allies on both sides" diplomacy of the "Lenin wann be" Barack O'Clause administration.
Plus a correction.
Instead of the Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt Mohammed Morsi, it was the friend of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Prime Minister of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, the FIRST leader that BHObama called after being sworn in as POTUS January 2009, who called Israel a "terrorist state" today, Monday Nov. 19, 2012.
So, the question is MORE serious.
Who is BHObama's REAL friend, Jewish Israel or Muslim Turkey?
The administration is
2. sympathetic to Gaza
3. doesn't believe Israel has the right to defend itself.
Glad Obama took time out to give his prediction for Monday Night Football on ESPN while the middle east burns.
Mr lee was involved in another give and take with the Administration recently. Shame on me but can someone refresh my memory as to what and when that was about?
This kind of questioning is what real journalism is, this is what could expose the current regime for its hypocrisys and injustices that they perpetrate on American day in and day out. Thanks Mr Lee. If there were only someway to show reporters how much this kind of questioning is appreciated maybe some of them would be willing to stand out like Matt Lee just did, and has done on occasion in the past. Again, please, if anyone recalls his last give and take, please refresh my memory. Thanks
Especially this one:
State Department Spokesperson Avoiding Questions on What is the Capital of Israel
It would be nice if brain dead Newt Gingrich would stop pissing on Romney and address the real issues facing this country. He has lost my respect after his comments, and I guess the check Romney wrote to pay off his campaign debts must have cleared. I never thought I would have more respect for an AP reporter than Newt, but it has happened. Newt and the LSM have now partnered up. So sad.
What position does Gingrich hold again? Doubt any money was handed to Romney either. Direct that hostility toward the administration and their puppets for God sake. Who cares what a bunch of people that either lost, have axes to grind, or are positioning within the republican party have to say? This administration's corruption and incompetence is on lightspeed now and we are going to need every ounce of energy directed toward this group of losers.
I feel sorry for Mr. Lee. He has committed journalistic suicide. If he is ever allowed into another Press Conference, he will never be called on to ask a question. They won't allow hard questions, or anything that may cause a conflict. The AP will probably be asked to reassign him to some other department.
Hey Patriot, sorry about posting similar comments and links in the same thread. Didn't see yours before or while I was doing my post. We obviously recalled the same events at the same time, which is really a strike against the msm if we can recall such specific questioning, proving how rare it happens but, how appreciated it is .
I apologize to you and Patriot, I did not see your links when I posted above. But you're right, Matt Lee does go after the State Department with the right questions every time. He is one lone ranger!
No worries. I don't know which one made the biggest impression that made me remember it. Love the reporter's toughness, but I cannot abide Victoria the state spox.
It's under investigation................it's under investigation..................it's under investigation.......Fast and Furious is still under investigation.............Libya will be under investigation until the American people forget that it happened..............the voting fraud in Florida is under investigation.....................all you need to know is that it's under investigation.
AND "we just followed the misleading talking points.... It's not our fault. Somebody stole mine. She told me to say that. The dog ate my homework. Nobody told me...."
