WATCH COUNTDOWN TONIGHT, KEITH HAS HUGE SCOOP ON GAFFE IN CBS INTERVIEW WITH MCCAIN, I WILL POST WHEN I CAN....

Watch Countdown, Katie Couric Interviewed McCain on eve news- and there is a really weird part of the Interview- I watched it and thought that McCain was either confused or just bumbled his answer part of the Interview- it turns out that CBS doctored it or re-edited it...because McCain 's REAL answer was SO WRONG ABOUT THE SURGE......watch it on the West Coast and See which version you get....

I can't believe how badly the McCain team is handling the media. When they are not promoting BO they are shooting themselves in the foot.

McGramps team is struggling on a lot of fronts- but that he bungled a Surge question SOOOO badly...and then CBS trys to cover it for him ...omg....

then....
we also have to add that NYT refused to air his Oped- because it was so poorly written and inaccurate- they did it to protect him from himself...( the scoop on this including his oped that didnot make it....)

And THEN today McCain came out and said that Obama would rather win the election than the war.....implying Obama would sacrifice the troops so he could win the election...what a cowardly low thing to do...

I caught the interview.... he made the win the election remark, and just kept saying Obama is wrong. McCain seems to be cycling remarks he was programmed to say, so he seems to have delayed responses.
Painful to listen to him speak.

my ex watched it too...he said it looked choppy- off...??? the questions did not fit the answers- we think it was even re-edited AGAIN...and the transcript on their site does not match the one that Keith read or the ONE I saw either....damnit..I hate this kind of thing....

and it was a BIG gaffe- not a little Slavic country blunder....

Figures. That's what I get for not watching TV.

Heard about it; didn't see it. I know long interviews get edited down to fit a time slot, but this was plain old dishonest. CBS paired an answer to a different question. That is disinformation. Now my question is WHY? Who decided to do that? Editors at CBS, or some McCain staffer who had to approve what was shown? I mean they already are calling out the NYT for an editorial they didn't like. Is the network news now having to go through McC staff filters before being aired? (if so they are doing a pretty pathetic job of making him look sane & competent)

DK:::
it is over on Huffpost....the Countdown clip...I agree with you ..WHO did this and WHY? and HOW? but it is not okay....and Keith was amazingly brave in reporting it...because it was not a small thing- misinformation about the Surge created to make McCain look better? or what?

and yes isn't it ironic that it happened the same week as the NYT oped spike...

and if it was 2004 and we did not have Huffpost ( which the story is the headliner tonight) and we did not have Keith- we would not know a thing...

WED::
By Noon Today even CNN is reporting that McCain got it WRONG about the Surge on CBS....No one is even treating it with kid gloves... ( so was it a lie? or a Mistake? Has he been saying it on the trail ? and WHY did CBS manipulate the Footage...

Eve news:::
Charlie Gibson and Sheila Vicar...
and Andrea were sure to give Obama rotten time on EVE news..CBS has SAID Nothing of the fuckup yesterday ...

CBS:::
" the Senator is not to be trusted" said that is the final verdict on papers in Isreal about Obama- one friggin paper had that headline and that is how they end the story- Shame on them

NBC:::
same thing...Andrea still having a real hard time wrapping her brain around Obama's Skills and diplomacy and her bias effects the coverage- abysmal...

enigma4ever said...

What is Andrea McMitchell's problem? I heard her this AM yakking about how we shouldn't pay attn to the military footage of Obama because they (the military) are very constrained in what they can show. WTF?

enigma4ever said...
