Contrarians have no sense of humor

For the January 31st edition, the DU named Jeff Gannon their #2 Conservative idiot (how sad is it that they even have stuff like that every week?)

Apparently the Bush administration isn’t just paying journalists to spout White House propaganda – they’re also planting journalists in press conferences to ask helpful questions. At a press conference last week, George W. Bush was happy to take a question from Jeff Gannon of "Talon News." Gannon asked, "Senate Democratic leaders have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines. And Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet in the same breath they say that Social Security is rock solid and there’s no crisis there. How are you going to work – you’ve said you are going to reach out to these people – how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?" Gee.. that sounds… fair and balanced. Rush Limbaugh was delighted to hear the question, saying on his radio show, "I said earlier today in the program, shortly after we began, that somebody in the White House press corps listens to this program. It is Jeff Gannon from Talon News." No doubt Jeff Gannon does listen to Rush Limbaugh, since Gannon is a poster at Free Republic. As for "Talon News," well, it consists of approximately two people – Gannon and Bobby Eberle, who is also the CEO of GOPUSA, a "conservative news, information, and design company dedicated to promoting conservative ideals." Nice to know they have such easy access to White House press conferences, isn’t it?

Yawn. I hear small violins. It gets much better, though.

I promise to try harder to be #1.

Jeff Gannon

DU wrote "liberal media my ass." No sense of humor what-so-ever. And how many softballs has Katy Couric pitched to democratic presumptive weenie John Kerry?

  1. I met both Bobby Earle at a GOPUSA conference last fall. Jeff Gannon was on a panel with G Gordon Liddy, Paul Rodriguez, and some other journalists. Bobby is a great guy and has a great organization. Real nice folks.

    And you’re dead right, the DU has no sense of humor. As if liberal journalists haven’t thrown softball after softball at liberal politicians.

    And what is the minimum number of people required for a news service?

  2. there is no correct # if it is a right wing news service.
