"And we can’t let Justice Thomas pass on this. There’s no opinion of his in here, he doesn’t ask questions in court. Does he do anything besides vote and rubber stamp Scalia?"
— Bryant Gumbel to CBS legal analyst Jonathan Turley following the Bush vs. Gore Supreme Court decision, December 13, 2000 The Early Show.


Bill Maher, host of ABC’s Politically Incorrect: "I do think, if it turns out that this beautiful young girl [Chandra Levy] is gone, I think, and he [Condit] is responsible in some way, you have to look to Ken Starr for a little bit of guilt."
Larry King: "Why?"
Maher: "Because, you know, Ken Starr made it so that you, in the old days, you had an affair with somebody, and you know, okay, you had an affair. The press didn’t report it. They didn’t make a political criminal case of it. Now, it’s almost like you have to get rid of them."
— Exchange on CNN’s Larry King Live, July 27, 2001.

And the winner is:

A compilation of Bryant Gumbel questions:

"Can you deny that he distorted Mr. White’s record and basically engaged in what some would kindly call character assassination?"
— CBS’s Bryant Gumbel to John Ashcroft adviser Charles Polk, on Missouri judge Ronnie White whom Ashcroft had opposed for appointment to a federal court, January 16, 2001 Early Show.

"If he’s [Ashcroft] so much of an extremist liability, as you claim, what’s his nomination say about George W. Bush and his claims of compassionate conservatism?"
— Gumbel to Wade Henderson of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights, January 16 Early Show.

"What do you think Senator Ashcroft’s distortion of your record and tarnishing of your good name says about his character?"
— Gumbel to Missouri Supreme Court judge Ronnie White, January 19 Early Show.

Accepting for Bryant Gumbel....William F. Buckley, Jr.
