  • Interesting, Clinton did initially bring up the political bent of Fox before most of the conversation happened, right after the initial question had been posed.

    I agree that Wallace's question was not, in itself, inappropriate or unfair.

    I disagree at the source of Clinton's anger, however. I see most of it as coming after he precieves Wallace as interrupting him as he tried to give a complete answer. Several times.

    Whether or not Wallace was justified in attempting to direct the conversation as an interviewer
    • s/poorly/poor/; #That's what I get for writing right before falling asleep. :)
    • Well, we'll agree to disagree on the source of his anger. Maybe it was a combination. But yes, yes, yes to the rest of what you said.
    • I don't know about the biases of the source, and haven't actually had a chance to read it yet, but I managed to find at least one article that does a point by point fact check [factcheck.org]. And it cites its sources.
      • FactCheck is usually very reliable, but not perfect (of course).

        Clinton was wrong that the miniseries was "falsely claiming it was based on the 9/11 Commission report." It was, absolutely, based on that report. Not entirely ... but they never claimed it was based on the report entirely. Indeed, they specifically stated they had other sources. "Based on" does not imply "no other sources" (including the writer's or director's rear end).

        FactCheck should have simply come out and said the claim that ABC's so

    I demand that you apologize and issue a retraction for your statements in this episode encouraging kitten molestation. Honestly, how much longer are we going to listen to this show and put up with this???

  • Detroit won the wild card, Minnesota won the division. The White Sox tried very hard to help Detroit win the division by taking 2 out of 3 from Minnesota. All water under the bridge though, the Tigers are 2 games away from winning the ALCS.
    • Yeah, I know. I goofed.

      Hm ... the Yankees were once one game away from winning the ALCS, with four games left to play. :D
      • Yeah, everyone was counting out the Tigers & the A's. Being a White Sox fan, I was glad Thomas popped it up last night. If you didn't see the game bases were loaded, bottom of the 9th, 2 outs, Thomas was the winning run and he popped up into center field. I don't want to see the "Big Whine" go to the world series.
