Okay part of the sixty minutes interview there we were going to show you some of the tough questions.
-- couldn't find that -- the other interview they got a lot of attention was new republic President Obama talking to the new republic here's a quote.
One of the biggest factors is going to be how the media shapes debates if a Republican member of congress is not punished on Fox News or by Rush Limbaugh.
For working with the Democrats on a bill of common interest.
Then you'll see more of them doing it the same dynamic happens on the democratic side I think the difference is just that the more left leaning media outlets recognize that compromise is not a dirty word we're back with the panel.
OK -- your thoughts.
I was at the start with the sixty minutes interview I think.
It was -- -- grotesque embarrassment for CBS news I think that this is the kind of thing.
This is the People Magazine modification of of six and Andrews which historically was always.
The news program that politicians are those -- -- most scared.
It is inconceivable that any of the of those journalists at fox if they had gotten an interview with.
Bush and Condoleezza Rice or Colin Powell would have gone nearly.
-- remote -- same zip code as soft as sixty minutes it.
The new republic has more excuse there'll flagship liberal publication but it's funny this editor of the new republic Chris Hughes is a dot com millionaire.
And donor used to work for Obama he says in his letter to your readers in the new issue in the same issue that has -- interview.
He says how they're gonna have no partisan bias that they're not gonna push a party line that they are not going to be bias towards one group or one party.
And yet this thing was basically dictation from the president -- -- -- things.
-- I think that.
You know Chris Hughes is gonna have to prove that and right out of the Gaby did an interview with the president and he's a big -- and a former employee in what seemed a little weird and apple of conflict.
The Steve croft interview what I thought was an interesting when -- -- -- asking that question whether you -- to do -- like it almost to the thought that a bubble -- is that why did I agreed to do this because this weekend.
Was that you know kind of puff piece exit interview you know pat on the head for Hillary and he'd played along from what we can to help.
Exit and the -- one thing.
And at the end of two terms.
Looking back over to terms that's one thing I've done one of those and you -- certain -- -- -- -- Reflective.
The -- starting.
A second term in the middle of controversy and the secretary of state is just come off a controversial testimony on Capitol Hill.
There -- hot spots all over the world there are few questions to ask that probably -- -- -- yes when you think about all the things that yes all the ground that wasn't covered.
Whether it was Syria our men Ghazi or for that matter the budget battle we haven't heard him explain anything about that and I'm dying to hear what he has to say so.
But I guess he's having a second honeymoon.
I love to hear that the president whine about Fox News and talk radio I think we ought to be.
Proud of the fact that we annoying him so much.
Obviously even if you look at the lineup on one side.
The liberals the liberal.
Mean -- start with.
ABC NBC CBS CNN PBS.
MSNBC -- -- the newspapers the one remaining newsmagazine the university's.
Hollywood it doesn't stop anywhere on the other side.
Talk radio Fox News and they can't stand the fact they no longer have a monopoly.
So I think it ought to be taken as a compliment and you know what I've always said about Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch -- genius was understanding.
And locating a niche audience in broadcast.
Which is half the American people.
-- that have suffered for decades by the fact that you get those whose present from a single perspective.
Over and over again and finally the fact that there is a new perspective talk radio and fox and they can't stand it.
The source of pride which is -- six humans.
Probably not because Ubisoft office just another soft and but I think if you -- L around.
-- semi official paper these ships and you had to interview like this with the president to be in Paris.
I think that's I think that's right in -- it's an amazing thing you have.
Corporate executives rich people rich liberals who looked at the current would.
Landscape of American television and the response was you know there what we really need is -- -- networks collectively MSNBC.
And so Al Gore created current.
Which is now Al-Jazeera.
There is this really other worldly view in the mainstream media.
