Journalism 101–know your subject and know your interviewee

And Contessa Brewer apparently knows neither and is left to resort to appeals to authority:

My question after answering "yes, ma’am" to her question would have been "do you?"

  • I love the subheading on the photo – 58% of the people support a plan that doesn’t exist.

    • Sometimes my cynicism says we should just let it all collapse as that the only way things will force the majority of Americans to pull their heads out of the asses.
      “The problems we face today are there because the people who work
      for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living.”

  • Brings to mind Katie Couric complaining that Time Magazine didn’t include a woman on the “Person of the Year” 2003 cover.

  • Wowser.
    A combative, hyper-partisan MSNBC talking turd who’s rude and obtuse.
    Whoduvthunkit??

  • Gee when was the last time a democratic Congressman or Obama was asked if they had a degree in economics.
     

  • I think twit is the best description of Contessa.

  • The degree that has says we can spend ourselves into prosperity?

  • McQ - My question after answering “yes, ma’am” to her question would have been “do you?”


    Good one.  Mine would have been something like, “Economics degree?  You mean like what Christina Roemer, Austin Goolsbee, Larry Summers, and the rest of President Obama’s team who predicted that blowing through $800 billion in ‘stimulus’ would keep unemployment below 8%, or who managed to miss that the economy was about to blow up in ’07, or who have advised us that the best way to get out of our debt problem is to INCREASE our debt?  That kind of economics degree?  Say… Does Tim Geithner, who can’t seem to do his own taxes, have an ‘economics degree’?”

    Hack.

    lookerI love the subheading on the photo – 58% of the people support a plan that doesn’t exist.

    Propoganda works, don’t it?  Captain Bullsh*t claims to have a plan, MiniTru dutifully repeats his claim without question, so people believe it.  Charles Krauthammer apparently got into it with Nina Totenberg over this very thing: Totenberg indignantly claimed that there was a plan, then couldn’t say a single thing that was in it.  Hell, that idiot Carney even claimed that NOT having a plan is “leadership”.
