Old Media credibility watch

[source, source]


Q Paul Wolfowitz, who was the — a chief architect of one of the most unpopular wars in our history —

THE PRESIDENT: (Laughter.) That’s an interesting start. (Laughter.)

Q — is your choice to be the President of the World Bank. What kind of signal does that send to the rest of the world?

Recall that the investigation by the blogs of the left into Jeff Gannon/Guckart began after Gannon/Guckart asked a leading question at the president’s last press conference. The rationale was that a partisan with a press pass was a suspicious thing. I don’t know who “Elisabeth” is, but her framing of her question is as partisan and leading as any that could be asked of the president. So, will the mob that went after Gannon/Guckart now be sifting through Elisabeth’s past for intriguing clues on the source of her partisanship?

Sadly, we all know the answer to that.
