Rachel is brilliant! I watched this and she managed to keep it classy while cleaning his clock. He said he would come back on her show....I'm betting he will not and he left that studio with his "tail between his legs" and his press person fired.

In a way it's good that he kept talking through everything Rachel tried to say because it just proved that he's a creep and a coward. If that had been me I would have told him, "this interview's over if you don't shut up while I'm talking." But she did the right thing.

Would have liked to see her hold eye contact and take the offensive more with this guy. That dude is pure, distilled evil.

Oh dear, if you guys really think that this clip shows Leftist hack Maddow "skewering" Tim Phillips you're more desperate for good news then I could have imagined. Maddow does her usual MSNBC partisan snark on behalf of Obama and Philips just shrugs it off while Maddow (a truly objective news anchor..ha, ha) becomes increasing tired and emotional. Come on guys, is this REALLY the best you can do ? And meanwhile Fox News carries on cleaning the clock of the State Media (CNN, MSNBC, ABC etc., etc.)

I kept picturing this dude in a parked car near a school with his pockets full of candy. He gave me the creeps.

thom hartmann is always interviewing right wingers [although, more of a benign libertarian variety] and it used to creep me out, until i began to understand what he was trying to do.

Hey Clark. Mature use of "faux" btw.
Try reading my post instead of just indulging in the usual left-wing knee-jerk reaction defending the Dem media. I said Fox was cleaning the clocks of the State-owned media...which it is. You obviously consider yourself a member of the State-run media because you say "faux is cleaning OUR clocks" . So, who do you work for ? CNN, CBS, MSNBC ?
And, if Fox, isn't leading in viewership, why is the White House devoting all it's speeches to attacking them ? Obama is worse than Nixon...a little, whiny baby who can't take media criticism. Boo hoo.Time for your community whiner to man up.

clark said...

maybe the larger issue is all of cable news combined has an audience that's what, four or five percent of the country? i think i agree that the white house is wasting their time, but i also understand why they're taking on fox. if i were making odds on who will win that one, the white house looks to have the edge. fox is only playing to their base, not expanding their influence, is how it appears. but maybe rahm emanuel has reason to believe differently.

Clark, thank you for using "fox" at least. As an independent, I am at a loss as to why the White House is doing this....it just makes Obama look petty. He will talk to the murderous regime in Iran but won't talk to little old Chris Wallace ! This is the kind of paranoia that Nixon indulged in and look where that got him. In a free society at least one network should be giving the government a rough time.
I also think that the White House is going to lose this one ...most Americans instinctively root for the underdog and the White House looks like a bully when it calls a news network it's "enemies".
As for Fox's base...it is growing by the day and as anti-government sentiment increases more people will switch to it if it is seen as a "rebel" broadcaster that is the only network standing up to the government.
