||Lynne Cheney on CNN: 'Why
Are You Running Terrorist Propaganda?'
"I’m hear to talk about my book. But if you want to talk about
Wolf Blitzer: "We’ll talk about your book."
Cheney: "Right, But what is CNN doing running terrorist
tape of terrorist shooting Americans? I mean, I thought Duncan
Hunter asked you a very good question and you didn’t answer
it. Do you want us to win?
Blitzer: "The answer, of course, is we want the United
States to win. We are Americans. There’s no doubt about it.
You think we want terrorists to win?"
Cheney: "Then why are you running- Why are you running
Blitzer: "With all due respect- With all due respect,
this is not terrorist propaganda."
Cheney: "Oh, Wolf!"
Blitzer: "This is, this is reporting the news which is
what we do. We’re not partisan."
Cheney: "Where did you get the film?"
Blitzer: "We got the film, look, this is an issue that
has been widely discussed. This is an issue that we reported
on extensively. We make no apologies for showing that. That
was a very carefully considered decision why we did that. And
I think, and I think that if you're-"
Cheney: "Well, I think it's shocking."
Blitzer: "-If you're a serious journalist, you want to
report the news. Sometimes the news is good, sometimes the
news isn't so good."
Cheney: "But Wolf, there's a difference between news
and terrorist propaganda. Why, why are you giving the
terrorists a forum?"
Blitzer: "And if you put it in context, if you put it
in context, that's what news is. We said it was propaganda. We
didn't distort where we got it. We didn't distort anything
about it. We gave it the context."

||Flashback: In '94, ABC
Slammed Gingrich as "Poster Boy for Politics of Rage"
Congressman Newt Gingrich, whose slash and burn rhetoric
against Democrats has made him the national poster boy for the
politics of resentment and rage, and he's proud of
it....Democrats, he says, are the enemies of normal people;
Republicans like him, the saviors of the country....The price
for his new prominence is a media focus on whether Gingrich
practices the family values he preaches; on an acrimonious
divorce from his first wife, who was his high school math
teacher; on how he used congressional staff to help produce a
book he wrote; and on his political action committee, GOPAC.
It generates millions of dollars in contributions, but won't
say from whom....Almost nothing would make Democrats happier
next Tuesday night than to derail the Gingrich dream."

||ABC News Honcho: Press Is
Liberally Biased, Needs Reform
"'Factor Followup' segment: Tonight a somewhat surprising
ABC News Internet posting. It's entitled 'How the Liberal Old
Media Plans to Cover the Last Two Weeks of the Election.'
Article was written by Mark Halperin, the political director
of ABC News, and also the co-author of a brand new book called
The Way to win: Taking the White House in 2008. Mr. Halperin
joins us now from New York. This is a very tough piece of
analysis that you wrote. I'm surprised; I'm not stunned
because you are a gutsy guy. You have done this before. But
let's walk through it. Who is the liberal old media?"
Mark Halperin: "Well, Bill, as you know, in this
country, we've got these old news organizations, the major
networks, ABC, where you used to work, the New York Times, the
Washington Post. These organizations have been around a long
time, and for 40 years conservatives have looked with
suspicion at them. I think we've got a chance in these last
two weeks to prove to conservatives that we understand their
grievances, we're going to try to do better, but these
organizations still have incredible sway, and conservatives
are certain that we're going to be out to get them. We've got
to fix that."...

Limbaugh's Slap at Michael J. Fox
"The Tennessee race isn't the only sign that the mid-year
elections are getting rough. Take a look at what Rush Limbaugh
is saying about Michael J. Fox, the actor who suffers from
Parkinson's disease and is campaigning for Democrats who
support stem cell research. Limbaugh said Fox was acting,
exploiting his illness, when he taped this ad for the
Democratic Senate candidate in Maryland."
Michael J. Fox in ad: "Stem cell research offers hope
to millions of Americans with diseases like diabetes,
Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. But George Bush and Michael
Steele would put limits on the most promising stem cell
Rush Limbaugh, from Web video: "He is moving all around
and shaking, and it's purely an act."
Mitchell: "In Illinois today, Fox responded."
Fox: "What I love is, we're close to an election and
we're talking about stem cells, and, you know, that's the

Suggests Bush is as Dangerous as Terrorists
"With the distance of history, the questions will be narrowed
and few. Did this generation of Americans take the threat
seriously? And did we do what it takes to defeat that threat?
Wise words and ironic ones, Mr. Bush -- your own, of course,
yesterday in signing the Military Commissions Act. You spoke
so much more than you know, sir. Sadly, of course, the
distance of history will recognize that the threat this
generation of Americans needed to take seriously was you. …"

8-Year-Old, Bush Sees Public as 'Stupid'
"Did you see the George Bush press conference this
Jon Stewart: "I did. He's tremendous. He's doing a, as
always, I think he soothed the nation, I think, here's what I
like about, he answers questions the way, like an
eight-year-old does when they didn't read the book. [applause]
You know what I mean? It's that crazy, like, you know,
'Treasure Island is a book about an island,' you know. He just
describes facts. I remember they asked him about Dennis
Hastert and the Foley situation and should Hastert resign, and
he says, [imitating Bush] 'Dennis Hastert,' he says, 'Speaker
of the House, known him ten years, his father's a coach, he
has an epidermis, covers his whole body, he's a mammal, his
kind have live young, no eggs,' you know. And then by the time
you're done, he's like, 'Next question,' you know, and you're
like, 'You didn't say anything!' People always say, 'Is he,'
you know, they say like, 'Oh, I think President Bush is
stupid.' He's not stupid. Stupid is, you know, 'Oh my God, I
just ate soap.' He's not stupid. When you listen to him talk,
you realize he talks like he's talking to someone who's
stupid, which means -- we're stupid. That must be. That must
be the way that it is."

Blasts President Bush as “Compulsive Liar”
"And lastly tonight: A 'Special Comment' about lying.
While the leadership in Congress has self-destructed over the
revelations of an unmatched, and unrelieved, march through a
cesspool; while the leadership inside the White House has
self-destructed over the revelations of a book with a glowing
red cover; the President of the United States -- unbowed,
undeterred and unconnected to reality -- has continued his
extraordinary trek through our country rooting out the enemies
of freedom: the Democrats.
"Yesterday at a fundraiser for an Arizona Congressman, Mr.
Bush claimed, quote, '177 of the opposition party said, ˜You
know, we don't think we ought to be listening to the
conversations of terrorists.'" …

Blasts Bush about Iraq War, Promotes Woodward Book
"Will this effect the elections?"
Chris Matthews: "Oh, yeah, it's part of the whole
smell. I mean, you got one guy messing around with the pages.
You got somebody else with $90,000 in cold cash in his
refrigerator that they find on Capitol Hill. You got another
guy who sells out for a yacht, this guy down here, Duke
Cunningham. You know? And you got a lot. And then you got
George Allen with his problem, with macaca and all that stuff.
He's in deep macaca."
Leno: "That's like the trifecta. They've got sex,
Matthews: "Yeah, I'm calling them the magnificent
seven. I got a list of these guys. No, I think it's gonna hurt
the Republicans. They're in charge."
Leno: "Will Democrats win the House?"
Matthews: "Not because they're doing a great job in
opposition, but I don't know how you can lose to this crowd."
Leno: "Yeah." [laughter]
Matthews: "I think that, I heard Mark Russell the other
night. He always does the jokes about politicians. He said,
'What do congressmen say to each other on Wednesday? Have a
nice weekend.' They're not working very hard up there, you
know? Now we know it's not a do-nothing Congress. But, of
course, when they do stuff, it's illegal." ...
