  Media Negative on Iraq Coverage
"If you are a reader or a viewer and you want to know, well, how are we doing [in Iraq], you know, is anything getting rebuilt, are they really democrats over there? How engaged are the Sunnis? Could I see an interview with any of these founding fathers and founding mothers of this new emerging country? Can you find that? You'll have a hard time doing it."
-- CNN Special Correspondent Frank Sesno, in response to comment that the major media are pushing negative coverage about the war in Iraq, CNN's Reliable Sources, July 31, 2005
 


  Networks Trumpet Hackett, "Candor" in Chastising "Chicken Hawk" Bush
"...Hackett is no fan of his Commander-in-Chief, calling him a 'chicken hawk,' and 'the biggest threat to America.'"
Hackett: "That's who I am. I stand by it."
"If elected, Hackett says he'll use that same candor to educate Congress about what's really going on in Iraq."
-- Geoff Morrell during World News Tonight, July 31st, 2005
 


  Peter Arnett: Saddam an 'Elegant, Diplomatic Guy'
"When I drove to the interview 10 days into the first Gulf War, I had that impression because thatís what propaganda sort of suggested, the Hitler of the Middle East, and so forth. Actually, he [Saddam Hussein] turned out to be a very elegant, diplomatic guy."
-- Peter Arnett, in exchange with Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson, July 27, 2005
 
CNN's Lou Dobbs

  Lou Dobbs: It's Hot, So Global Warming
"Heat advisories in effect tonight all around the Midwest, the Southeast, Southwest, northeastern United States. That just about covers it. The triple-digit temperatures and other bizarre weather patterns have many now wondering whether this is the reality of global warming."
-- Lou Dobbs, CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, July 25, 2005
 


  NBC: Timing of Court Announcement To Deflect from Karl Rove?
Brian Williams: "David Gregory mentioned the Karl Rove factor in all this. What does he have to do with the naming of a Supreme Court nominee?"
Tim Russert: "I think Karl Rove's enjoying this day, one of the few in the last week or so. Harry Reid, the Democratic leader in the Senate, said, 'Isn't it interesting, the timing?' And, Brian, every Republican I talked to today in Washington said, 'Thank God they're changing the subject. We'd much prefer to fight over the Supreme Court than watch Karl Rove be talked about in the press with a CIA investigation.'"
-- Exchange between NBC anchor Brian Williams and NBC reporter Tim Russert, NBC Nightly News, July 19, 2005
 
Lou Dobbs

  CNN Worker Calls Rove Testimony 'Bullshit' On the Air
Lou Dobbs: "Tonight, a surprising new development in the CIA leak investigation. Karl Rove's testimony to a federal grand jury is being reported. The testimony suggests that President Bush's political adviser may not have been the original source for the Valerie Plame leak. Rove testifying that he first learned about Plame from columnist Robert Novak, a CNN contributor. Dana Bash reports."
Female voice (not Dana Bash), whispering: "That's bullshit."
-- CNN's Lou Dobbs Tonight, July 15.
 
John Roberts

  CBS's John Roberts Comments on Media Criticism of Karl Rove
"But I'll tell you, Bob, the White House has got to come up with something other to say on this, politically at least, than just, 'We're not going to talk about an investigation,' because for the last two days the press secretary has just been hung up on a clothesline and beaten like a dusty rug."
-- John Roberts responds to Bob Schieffer about the Karl Rove controversy, not mentioning that it has been Roberts and his media colleagues who have been castigating the White House press secretary on the issue, CBS Evening News, July 12, 2005.
 
David Gregory

  NBC's David Gregory Labels White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan's Comments About Karl Rove "Ridiculous"
"Scott ... this is ridiculous. The notion that you're going to stand before us after having commented with that level of detail and tell people watching this that somehow you decided not to talk. You've got a public record out there. Do you stand by your remarks from that podium, or not?"
-- NBC's David Gregory in exchange with White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan about Karl Rove controversy, July 11, 2005
 


  ABC's Charlie Gibson Pushes for a Non-Conservative Supreme Court Nominee
"You said a moment ago you suspected that the President would choose a very conservative candidate and you said, 'I think that he ought to do that.' Should he, or should he try to find somebody who would be more acceptable to all spectrums? And is that possible in this day of age?"
--- ABC's Charlie Gibson to Senator Orrin Hatch, Good Morning America, July 5, 2005.
