Brokaw Attacks Clinton
One item today:
Tom Brokaw challenges President Clinton
from the left in the premiere of "Internight," the 8pm ET
interviewshow on the new MSNBC cable network.
Here are two questions posed by Brokaw in
his live July 15 interview:
Brokaw: "Let's talk for a moment
about welfare. The Republicans have a bill that they think you will sign,
on the Hill. It eliminates the federal guarantee of cash assistance for
poor children in this country, a guarantee that we've had in place since
the early 1930s. Are you prepared to have that happen?"
Clinton: "Depends on what else is in
Brokaw: "But you can foresee the
possibility that we'll take away the ultimate safety net of no federal
cash assistance to very poor children?"
And a couple of segments later:
Brokaw: "Mr. President, before we get
back to the internet questions, I wanted to follow up just for a moment on
welfare if I can. If in fact you sign the Republican bill that's likely to
come down from the Hill, all the projections show that that will push, at
least short term, more than a million youngsters in this country below the
poverty line. That's a high risk for youngsters in this country who are
already in peril."
