And -- impact segment tonight the editor at time magazine Rick Stengel -- resign go to work for the Obama administration.
Since 2009 at least 25.
American journalists have been taken.
By the Democrats and put into the administration including Jay Carney White House spokesman.
We believe this crews -- national media is a left leaning entity with a sad Dana Perino -- of the five who was a white house Press Secretary under President Bush.
Those cuts both way -- -- Tony subtly Tony Snow he was working at fox and then he went to be your predecessor -- spokesman for W.
You -- journalists in the beginning.
That's what I aspired to be and I worked for WC IA in the CBS affiliate in Springfield Illinois.
It it I just wasn't cut out for and to.
To be honest I had never seen by us.
Like that I grew up in combat I thought everyone thought like I did and I got -- you saw his eyes even my table loses Springfield Illinois and -- I'm -- -- in the legislature back.
OK so you then went into politics and then rose to the ranks to get his job in the Bush Administration do you believe that 25 that's a lot.
It's beyond his admonished -- -- brings over.
That shows that the national media is liberal -- has a couple things and yes I think that it gives.
Allows us to stop the charade.
That everybody is fair and on and balanced -- -- -- -- that Tony Snow was an excellent hire -- George Bush that was thought he was probably the best Press Secretary at the podium.
That the country had ever seen.
That when he came from fox he he had already been a speechwriter for President Bush 41 night and then he when -- -- boxing wasn't pretending to be but it was unclear what his -- -- diluted kind of -- -- point.
I talked to Tony I'm -- friend is as you know.
Been fortunate -- job -- call me.
Annie Annie said.
You know look I got this opportunity.
And he was doing radio he was it -- she was my on the radio factor he was -- -- up.
I think it was in a column and he was doing a whole bunch of things -- -- -- -- job if you wanted to if -- you be fun did you -- alarm clock -- job.
-- -- show anything other than -- Republican but everybody knows your Republican right so now Rick Stengel editor time magazine he was supposed to be.
Non partisan right nonpartisan guy.
We knew he wasn't anybody who knows mr.
sang on this isn't a slam at him now what he's taken he's a -- -- as a bit on state.
So now he says I've had enough time because is going down the drain or whatever and an -- over -- the Obama administration.
But Stengel was supposed to be a hard.
Who's -- -- so was Jay Carney when I was in the White House Press Office he was the DC bureau chief.
Four time that -- magazine and I remember in 2004 when time magazine -- -- covers called cowboy diplomacy.
It was meant to undermine President Bush's and foreign policy.
At the time when you hang -- -- been critical of how some of the Bush Administration how we handled some of the media coverage of the Bush Administration.
But in a way -- so under siege so it's the mainstream media and you have nothing you have no other choice but to be gracious.
Provide facts provide interviews where you -- and push back when you can.
When Jay Carney went to work for Joseph Biden initially before he became the Press Secretary for President Obama I remember thinking OK good now we can all just stop attending.
And I think that's health late but I think they could look at me and say well what -- how ironic is this.
She was a former white house Press Secretary and now she's on fox but I never pretended to be an.
-- I'm doing we have higher analysts and that's pretty much Richard -- -- caused the fire which are not going out covering.
You know all Qaeda attacks.
We hired people.
Who we think the audience is gonna relate to one way or the other I mean look at Bob Beckel he's he's committed Democrats of -- that have experienced on and bring it yet.
And who can before wants them.
But the the I hey I've always said this on this program that the national media -- left about seven -- to one.
For every conservative working at the national level there are eight.
-- seven liberals and the pupil that's just you and I hear the pupil says that that that is true.
I also think your point about -- magazines and newspapers going down the drain if you are concerned about job security.
And you think that there might be a good match for you to work for an administration that you agree with I think that these journalists are making probably good.
You're a business decision sure.
And then and then that gives an experience office that they get a big get a university job and it illustrates the pipeline and the administration needs fresh energy people who are able to go the distance and -- I'll tell you watch -- -- after I retire from here.
I'm sure I'm gonna get some community college offers obviously -- probably work Friday.
And New Mexico community out of your house now whatever it into but believe me my alma mater Harvard he can offer me a job I -- -- up -- you guys.
Thanks very much we appreciate your.
