  •  What a sad interview (16+ / 0-)

    Cheney's venom is infuriating, but my god, John King is horrible.  He's a carbon copy of David Gregory, and it's partly because of these types of interviews that the Bush Administration ran roughshod over the Constitution for 8 years.

    I'm just surprised King and Cheney didn't fist bump when it was over.

      I for one don't fault the performace of John King and David Gregory on those interviews.  The objective is to have Cheney express his so called views, unfiltered and have him exposed to his state of mind for all to see. He only looks and sounds worse with every encounter. I think what he has said has already done the damage to his reputation, and to the country.  The polls show 80% of the American people has dismissed Cheney anyway.

        I think we all know what we're getting with Dick Cheney; what we need now is someone in the media (like King or Gregory) to question him on the legality of his actions as VP.  80% of Americans may have dismissed him, but the media goofballs still look up to him and Rove for some odd reason.

          On another thought, you are right that we know what we are getting with Cheney, and it maybe time to challenge him on his policies and his views in the Bush White House.  I would love for CNN to do it, but I don't see it happening yet.  I think as the Bush years start to unravel with more revelations, there won't be any choice for the media.  American's will then demand hard answers from Bush and Cheney.  I don't see a Frost/Nixon event, however.

            I think they should have been challenging Bush and Cheney from the very beginning.  Imagine how different things could be if we'd had a responsible press in 2002...or if they were merely as diligent in questioning the war as they were Bill Clinton's sex life.
