Charlie Gibson: Biased Democrat Ass

Posted by cann0nba11 on September 13, 2008

Thanks to Ed Morrissey for gathering this data. I’m just spreading the faith.

Contact ABC yourself, or go straight to ABC NEWS and voice your disgust.

Charlie Gibson’s interview brazenly typified the media bias that Conservatives have been clamoring about for years. Instead of coming off as a professional journalist, Gibson looked like a parent interrogating a teenager after coming home late from a party. He couldn’t even muster a sincere smile. Even Bill O’Reilly was able to joke around with Barack Obama, a presidential candidate that is the political opposite of O’Reilly . Gibson simply lacks the personality and/or tact to be polite to someone with whom he disagrees. Personally, I think he hates Palin with a bitter passion for singlehandedly stealing Obama’s unjustifed thunder and momentum.

“Dude! The media is so in the tank for McCain! Man, they treat him like a prince!” WRONG. Here is the list of questions that Gibson lobbed to Obama:

  • How does it feel to break a glass ceiling?
  • How does it feel to “win”?
  • How does your family feel about your “winning” breaking a glass ceiling?
  • Who will be your VP?
  • Should you choose Hillary Clinton as VP?
  • Will you accept public finance?
  • What issues is your campaign about?
  • Will you visit Iraq?
  • Will you debate McCain at a town hall?
  • What did you think of your competitor’s [Clinton] speech?

Here’s the list he tossed at Palin:

  • Do you have enough qualifications for the job you’re seeking? Specifically have you visited foreign countries and met foreign leaders?
  • Aren’t you conceited to be seeking this high level job?
  • Questions about foreign policy
    -territorial integrity of Georgia
    -allowing Georgia and Ukraine to be members of NATO
    -NATO treaty
    -Iranian nuclear threat
    -what to do if Israel attacks Iran
    -Al Qaeda motivations
    -the ‘Bush Doctrine”
    -attacking terrorists harbored by Pakistan
    Is America fighting a holy war?

The nice thing about the last item in the list above is that ABC’s editors got creative with their digital scissors and misquoted Palin for all of the ABC audience to see. They specifically and intentionally edited Palin’s answer to make her look like a religious zealout. Shameful. Despicable. Disgusting. There are not enough words for me to properly express my disdain for ABC. ‘Criminal’ is probably appropriate.

Please read Morrissey’s excellent summary for more information, including his hugfest with Johnny Bang-another-woman-while-your-wife-suffers-from-cancer Edwards for another textbook example of media bias.

Mr. Gibson. You are a blatantly biased shameful Democratic ass.

    But there was another interview Gibson did with Obama. For a great comparison of two almost identical questions go here

    You guys are whack. Like seriously, Charles Gibson reserves the right for that demeanor he displayed. Sarah Palin has no damn qualifications. Alaska is close to Russia???? is that national security experience at its best? Are you kidding me. Is she taking this country for a joke. The reason Sarah Palin received harder questions is because no one knew who she was before 2 weeks ago. So of course she is gonna have tough interviews. Stop living in the ideological world. See reality. The reality is Sarah Palin is unfit to be the VP. She never left North America until 2007. How can you be governor and not know what the Bush Doctrine is? Is this the woman you want to go and confront North Korea and Iran. You telling me John McCain could not have picked a better running mate. Mitt Romney? Fred Thompson? Lieberman?
    The interview was simply embarrassing. Yes Gibson was hard on her but guess what, she is a potential VP. She has to get interrogated like everyone else. Its either you nail the interview and become an overnight sensation or you get embarrassed!
    The irony of the whole thing is this…Americans will still vote for John McCain and his Hockey Mom.

    I’m whack? Look my liberal compadre, this isn’t a freecreditreport.com commercial, we are talking about the future of America. My point is that Gibson was a rude and condescending asshole. He used to be more professional, but apparently he’s lost the ability to at least appear as an unbiased journalist.

    Your comments indicate to me that you are spouting liberal talking points and you haven’t done your homework. Your reference to the Russia comment tells me that you haven’t read the whole quote, you simply fell for what ABC edited (an obvious attempt to make Palin look ditzy).

    And, as much as you try to deny this, everything that concerns you about the Republican VP applies to the Democratic candidate. Obama has no experience. His international travels have more to do with him sympathizing with his Pakistani college roommate than it does with him learning about America. Do the research and you will learn what I’m talking about.

    As to confronting Iran, North Korea, et al, Obama can’t even handle more than a couple of questions without his teleprompter. The man has the amazing ability to make GWB sound articulate.

    Do yourself a favor and read the IBD editorial series on Obama and his world view and then tell me if you still want to vote for him. Don’t let the titles scare you, the facts are far scarier: http://www.ibdeditorials.com/series8.aspx

    I truly welcome your feedback, thanks for taking the time to read and respond.
