I wanna get to the daily -- -- fashion -- and Jim Pinkerton.
Joining us full wants from Washington Jim good -- -- -- which camera we -- -- lied about.
Lost which camera I was on Jim sorry but they lock I see you now I don't -- you -- And I hey you know.
Say something Jim I hide all -- you -- now I've got you.
Jim bus -- today all I've got here is a headline -- says let's all blame Fox News well not have.
Along well I mean the most most people in the media seem to have it I'm just.
There's a felony all up pundit which -- -- is his real name who who writes a lot for hot air dot com and he caught Robert F Kennedy junior saying that that.
That the country is divided in this is Kennedy talking now.
Because of the right wing and so on and and I just got me thinking.
You know if it isn't really the case and so I was.
Clicking around the places -- go to for sort of you know have defined in that straight news in terms of just the actual.
Raw videotape and text and so on and so on and media research TV came up with MSNBC contributor.
Karen -- Talking about how.
The and gun violence was a function of vintage Obama Bulger case is a function of right wing media -- -- railing going -- stuff.
And I thought there's a -- -- I was kind of divisive and it doesn't sound like that the build the right isn't controlled MS and NBC at all as ours is just you know going through this and looking around and and down.
Just reflecting on how it could be that that the big chunks of the liberal media that liberal MSM could spend their time.
Attacking attacking themselves for being too conservative one factor -- -- but I think it's called projection I think you sort of heard trying to.
Shift the blame where -- from one place and -- and so if you are liberal.
Though the most fun thing of all them imaginable to do is to say -- we're too conservative and that sort of throws people off you'll get confused as to where you're coming from and so on and I think.
Chris is a lot of complexity here a lot of kind of you know moving parts inside the beltway here there and and the New York -- Washington.
A court or.
And we all can -- her own conclusions in our own.
Data points but that that the take away.
Is from Gallup which shows that you know solid majority of Americans don't support don't think the meteors are trustworthy.
And I think that's.
A -- take away at all is it but is that is that a reflection of -- All the media be they be they liberal media conservative media arm maybe aren't right in the middle media.
I think that's exactly the point is it is it is it yes it's it's people don't trust the media in general and in part because they do even even Democrats according to Gallup.
See the see the media's biased.
To the laughter there obviously Democrats are less upset about it than than than than than Republicans and conservatives.
But the thing is I think most people in their bones feel that.
People here in DC -- up in New York don't really Arab and both the countries.
True north positions on things and in their heads.
There's a self selection processors have problems practice you live here in DC Europe in New York of -- is 90% of the media now.
-- the mainstream the big media.
And there's just a general destruction -- would you think is healthy and among other things necessitates.
Not only fox news watch on on Saturdays and Sundays but also by especially in the week yeah I didn't get a gym -- you -- DC to fix the F fiscal cliff negotiations.
-- but but but but but but but but -- I'm I'm -- with.
They're they're allegedly working at a very a couple blocks from here expect a deal do you -- compromise in the works Jim and I was that we were talking just now well.
With congress from both Korea back the way it did the idea and Montana weighing in as well that the idea that.
Perhaps because nothing did leak out of the -- Obama meetings over the weekend perhaps there really is so amid some hard -- -- old look going on would you agree with that.
I would and I think that however I think that there of them but one thing that sure is a tax increase part I think that that this does that on the on the personal rate.
I think -- the spending cuts your fear there there's a very -- in revealing article on the on the the Washington Post today again -- you don't read to -- -- don't fall entirely trust them.
Senator Durbin ability of Illinois who's the number two Democrat senate then you know who have very close to President Obama.
Going back to their days together in in Illinois I'm saying well you know look.
Maybe we judges and entitlements however.
I did serve under them against what the Republicans have -- mine which is raising retirement age and and and slowing down the cost of living allowance.
Ions and said this is Durbin talking I'm more for maybe some sort of means testing planned there.
So who in between it and a fairly big new philosophical split between two -- -- think you're cutting entitlement spending -- the growth titles and and one.
Is a -- means testing it for before her for the for the affluent and therefore not paying are cutting back at least and raising -- -- -- a sure everybody are slowing down the cost of living adjustment.
Those are pretty big differences and the candidate they could it achieve the same dollar figure and very very different ways and so.
-- they only had -- on for sure is a tax preferred I think that's kind of -- Baked in the cake already by January 1.
You think that they Republicans will come around to -- basic tax rate increase.
-- people running over a certain level and it's so Jim do you think it'll be 250000.
I'm I don't necessarily think Republicans will agree they may well I mean certainly senator worker on the on the on the Sunday shows yesterday was saying that and and funny about the Republicans who gives us.
Match that up her mind if they don't agree we go over the cliff and then rates go up so I think that -- that the chance President Obama.
Agreeing to seeing something not higher than 35 or.
37 him in between there -- I'm 39.
But we have as you said that's on New Hampshire and everything else is sort of speculative all right nobody knows anything as you can always likes to -- that he didn't make to save my friend -- -- -- -- down there in DC.
Jim obviously you can see and day old style panel of all those weighing in -- sort of subjects to 30 and 11:30 eastern on Saturdays.
On FOX News Watch posted by -- -- thanks very much Jim great to see thank you thank you.
