The Two Faces of George Stephanopoulos

This morning on "This Week", anchor George Stephanopoulos proved his bias once again.

In his pre-pitch for an upcoming segment on the show, he referred to his guest, Gen. Michael Hayden, deputy director of national intelligence, who he referred to as heading up the controversial "Domestic Spying Program".

When he got to the segment, he did the generally standard dual sided intro saying "Referred to by its proponents as 'Terrorist Surveillance Program' and by its critics as a 'Domestic Spying Program'...."

Therefore, by his own definition, Stephanopoulos is a critic of the program, and thus biased. QED (although we didn't need any additional proof as far as I'm concerned).

Excellent catch. Just another reason for MSM ratings to decline.

People can get polled and express their cynacism, etc.. but I can't wait for voters to get a choice on national defense. Do you want someone who will be aggressive against terrorists or do you want someone who is not? In the end that is the ultimate question.

Hugh Hewitt posted this last week, asking hypothetically: You have the misfortune to be part of a mass hostage situation. Jack Bauer hasn't arrived. Looks like it might go on for days, maybe weeks or even months.

Who would rather be with --the Congressional Democrats or the Congressional Republicans?

I think it's an excellent question, and one with an easy answer. I suspect my socialist neighbor and I would have the same answer.
