Too Funny! Batiste Gets the Boot!

CBS News Boots Bush-Bashing General
NewsMax

Retired Army Maj. Gen. John Batiste has been asked to leave his post as a CBS News consultant after he participated in an ad criticizing President Bush.

In the television ad – sponsored by the VoteVets Action Fund – Batiste declares: "Mr. President, you have placed our nation in peril. Our only hope is that Congress will act now to protect our fighting men and women.”

CBS News’ Vice President for Standards and Special Projects, Linda Mason, told CBSNews.com’s Public Eye: "When we hire someone as a consultant, we want them to share their expertise with our viewers. By putting himself front and center in an anti-Bush ad, the viewer might have the feeling everything he says is anti-Bush. And that doesn’t seem like an analytical approach to the issues we want to discuss.”

OH, please...CBS going honest?

I'm REAL impressed.

not.

However, I do think they have a point. And that this guy has an agenda. There are better ways to be heard than appearing in an anti-Bush ad.

I feel that it was self-serving, trying to "look" impartial. As far as I'm concerned, I'm not impressed.

No, but one of our esteemed house 'liberals' here touted Batiste's opinion in a reply to me. I just wanted him--Anon. or LIM--to see in what kind of estimation his 'hero' is held...

This is old news anyway. Batiste's comments were best found when Rumsfeld was still in service... that was LONG ago.

Could you define vulgar. Apparently it is anything a progressive says but the wingers can say just about anything they want. I see the F**K word throughout this site, even you use it but blowjob is vulgar? I see posts calling for violence against fellow Americans but criticism of Bush is not allowed?

The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be
a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit

But think of if you added some great visuals or video clips to give your posts more,
"pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog
could definitely be one of the best in its field. Superb blog!

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a
hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
