-- love that Tom Petty.
So it only took three weeks for the administration to -- -- -- attack was not spontaneous he got to wonder where Obama finds these staffers.
I haven't seen this many clown since ringling Brothers held a job fair -- my big hit only point really.
Who was the source who said that video cause all of there's -- video no one heard -- Until after these attacks it's not a question it's a scandal because -- -- to an intellectual corruption of the highest order a deep desire to blame America for evil in the world.
While excusing it's real perpetrators.
Are breaking this paper clip I'm so angry it's a question that changes in election.
But we can't forget how the media enabled all of this.
Although I do remember one guy getting it right.
Freedom of speech is only valuable if -- exercising your abdicating it in service to your election prejudices.
You sold yourself -- You're setting a horrible president's you're destroying your profession and damaging this country's tradition of free debate.
And I probably shouldn't change this year because -- -- in the same thing but he is gorgeous nonetheless but -- -- have picked up the ball.
-- have a First Amendment because.
Not because of founding fathers like the press they hated the press.
But they believed to Jefferson said -- me in order to have a free country.
In order to deal for you if three people.
We need the free press and that was done on an implicit understanding that somehow the press would protect the people.
From the government and the power by telling somehow allowing people get out the truth.
That is being aggregated as we speak.
So at least one -- Democrat and I agree but we don't have a press we have enablers encouraging administration to be inefficient an amateurish.
It's no wonder the media wants big guys he -- to be gone for exposes their devotion.
To their chosen leader where's the sixty minutes in depth examination.
The New York Times magazine expose say what about highlights I love the highlights hello -- one look at the Univision that's in furious investigation.
It's brutal now even Mexico covers US news better than US networks.
Yet the -- is just a another lefty pipeline extending from the faculty lounge the -- over educated grad students who win by the liberal orthodoxy generally go -- -- -- -- -- themselves or government -- -- -- feed -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- no -- -- -- -- -- -- And why we wiped the floor with them.
-- what's wrong.
I'm fed up I can -- I don't know if I'm fed up I might be just slightly angry.
Greg could be just irritated great points -- do they let me ask you this could this would happen under bush lord I don't monitor enemy to use it.
-- -- it's true now I think that's hypocrisy it really stinks.
What things did not realize when -- -- -- that that the Press Secretary they don't and the briefings themselves right they start the -- called a briefing and then the senior wire reporters he's the one Hershey.
Decides when -- briefing that ends.
I would nab first might never have gone -- the arguments about in the first place.
Secondly if I had I don't think I would have gotten out of the room because they all would have been there pressing me as they should.
The press secretary's job 50% of it.
Defend the president and to the press.
The other 50% defend the press to the president so that they have access that they need in -- do their jobs but if they're not gonna do their jobs in what's the point.
Exactly -- I have a theory.
The last four years the media has gotten they've lost their muscle memory they're like athletes and you have to use -- -- you lose it.
And because they've they've got their guy in power they don't know how to chase a story any -- except for precious few well.
Did they really ever have a muscle man.
Begin -- because we still don't really know who President Obama is they wanted to underwent.
I would say Greg that a lot of reporters were Kiki growing up and now the cool kid President Obama they want him to like them because in here they're nerds I would say that I'm for the blogs -- go crazy so I'm definitely not.
But you -- if they they have some answers that they owe the American people why because.
Did Jay Carney as we know we covered on the show he came out and gave conflicting answers.
And -- -- one thing if the media were reporting on these conflicting answers they're not doing any reporting they're sitting back and they're just reading glossy campaign pieces.
On the president and we even heard me Jake Tapper and finally it was of honesty came out and said look they -- last they did in 2008 and they're doing it again.
CBS news have followed up.
A little on -- story and it actually if you look at some editorial pages today they are today and when USA today calls -- out -- a story that's like a protester calling about your hygiene.
It doesn't happen very often there twenty days late.
If that might -- prom is on.
Within a couple of days then the they got financial -- terror said Olson I think he set -- look at looks like it's terrorism.
And then a couple of days Susan Rice ambassador rice going talking to David Gregory -- -- the Candy Crowley talking to Bob -- talking did George Stephanopoulos.
And not one of them push back and said what about what about your.
Other people who saying it's terrorism where are you why how can you keep -- this movie.
Mainstream media is complicit in this -- -- -- exactly but can I just think one point.
Jon Stewart finally last night jumped on board -- -- calling mainstream media part time employee on board to.
Bob well we I -- -- left so you can talk as long as you want I don't wanna serves on I don't want to say is written in your monologue you said.
They are out to get the American people and to protect America's enemies pretty strong statement you can view I -- Say that if she did.
He deserves and is about a strong a statement you made against Intel community -- -- -- -- actually editing I said that -- warning on America and Israel when we -- did you forget already.
That's it that good ideas that I did this I just sent me an enemy of the the American people I didn't rush out -- -- -- that they're not gonna say one thing that -- OK -- he's -- I'll go ahead.
Obama no no no Bob Bob -- I don't know don't sold Bob I'm not is not getting getting exactly a -- putting out this job market is so it's okay.
I'm gonna go read the mainstream media that's all there is just little networks in the and the New York Times that's for -- to get -- -- news our rights.
