Diane Sawyer's Idea of an Attack

Newsbusters has the transcript of a segment of Good Morning America in which Diane Sawyer accused guest Larry Elder of "attacking" her. Go read it. Elder was simply disagreeing with her that the Imus firing was a "free speech" issue, since it was not the government doing the firing, but rather a corporation. If that is what Diane Sawyer labels an attack, I can't imagine how she would respond to some of the attacks on conservatives. (Some on her own show.) I wish the "attacks" I get from time to time in my email were of the Larry Elder variety.

Allen:

We do have free speech in this country, and I would not be surprised that at one time or another the govt has tried to shut someone up. However, this is not a free speech thing. Some people blame the lefties and repugs for getting him fired.

What really happened is that enough Americans said enough is enough with this race spewing BS. CBS et al was happy when Imus was raking in the coins from all the advertisers. But when they started losing money, bye bye.

What is really scary, think back a couple of years during the super bowl. JJ's nipple. The outrage and fines because of that. I emailed the FCC and mentioned how easy it is to explain to my 6 year old daughter what a nipple is. Her mom has them, my daughter has them, I have them, the animals have them. But how in the hell do you explain to her what a four hour erection is? Needless to say, the FCC never answered me. It's all about money.

But the bottom line is that average American taxpayers are getting fed up with not only the Imus's out there, they are also getting fed up on the radio & TV shows that spin the truth; part truth and mostly lies. Even blog readers are getting fed up with the same BS. Depending on what site you go on, it's SPIN SPIN SPIN. Sawyer is no worse or better than O'Riely (SP) on his show. Same thing, different party is all.

Tipper Gore wanted to censure books, that is free speech, writing a book, isn't it? McCain wants to censure the internet. Isn't the internet free speech also. Not only the poster, but also the comments are saying what they want to.

The people on the radio and TV have to control themselves, and start do so damn soon or more will end up like Imus, and IMO he deserved to be fired, and one of the parents of the Rutger players should make Imus get dentures.

Lee:

With all of today's news out of Washington re: EmailGate the best conservatives can do is link to a fraction of a transcript (eliminating a large portion of the interview that must have explained Sawyer's comment - can't have that!) then pretend this is newsworthy information?

Man, how does it feel to be scrapping the bottom?

Conservative America has been sunk, and post like this one of Lorie's are nothing more than "bubbles from the bottom!"

And let me make it clear - by "bubbles from the bottom" I'm not referring to the kind of bubbles Jay Tea makes in the bathtub with his rubber ducky - I mean the kind you find rising to the surface on the ocean of political opportunity.

Maybe you guys can sweep the next dogcatcher election - just start a campaign smearing all brown or black haired dogs as being either "illegals" or a "nappy-headed ho's." That'll electrify your core base into action.

Lee, you're off your meds again.

Saywer identified the "attack" which anyone else would consider a "correction". It's in the quote.

Trust me, some people do see any sort of "correction" as an attack. Usually it's proportional to just how invested they are in what they are doing at the moment. Especially if they think of what they've been corrected for as a "good deed" and are expecting praise. In that case, even a mild correction feels like a full out slap across the face.

I don't know if Sawyer was actually upset at all. Didn't see it. Didn't see her expression. Didn't see if her smile looked a bit forced. Calling it an attack is strange but it might have just been a poor word choice.

If she *was* hurt by Larry Elder's correction it's got to do with her, because what he said was by no means out of line.

I listen to Larry Elder's radio show almost daily and he is the definition of class. He is able to articulate complex topics in consice terms and is able to backup his statements with facts and references always giving callers with opposing view points plenty of time (often too much in my opinion) and they often resort to name calling and attempt to change the subject when he makes them defend wild accusations. This country could use a lot more people like Mr. Elder.

Allen:

Jo, Scrapiron,

If, and I repeat IF, I was a Demo running for President, I would not go on Fox for several valid reasons (which you refuse to understand). Fox claimed Obama went to a Muslim school. That was and is pure BS. He went to a public school. That and other lies, half truths Fox has made, hell no the Demo's shouldn't go on Fox.

Will Rudy, McCain, Rummey, et al go on Air America? Hell no they won't, and for the same reasons the Demo's say about Fox.

And it's starting with Imus. The people from both parties, not the rabid few on each side that spin BS, but decent people have said enough is enough. The media (radio & TV) needs to censor themselves, same as the blogs, which allow spinning half truths, etc.

The govt will not censor all this, but the American taxpayers will, and it just pisses off the demos and the puggies when they get called on it. Why can't you present the truth without the spin, name calling, etc?

I don't hate the left or the right, most of the time you people give me free laughs. But wise up, change will be coming if it isn't cleaned up by yourselfs.

It's no permissible for them to hide in a democracy like ours. If they can't handle an even marginally hostile press they've got NO business trying to tell me that they can handle running the country.

Lee:

Sure enough -- 30 seconds on the internet fact-checking the lying conservative bloggers was enough to prove that this bit about Sawyer being "attacked" was indeed just more made up crap -- that Lorie dutifully linked to without even checking.

Watch the video and you'll see that Sawyer is laughing when she says she was "attacked" -- it was a joke!

But don't take my word for it - here's a link to the video. THE WHOLE VIDEO, not just an out-of-context snip of a transcript without any indication that she's laughing while she says the quoted remark -- but if watching an ABC video makes you conservatives wet your diapers you can fast-forward to the end.

Anytime Byrd or Priestap link to another blogger you need to drill down and find the lie. Watching the video you'll see that Sawyer's reaction is in jest.

So I repeat again -- on a day when BIG news is happening the best conservative bloggers have to offer their readers is nothing more than lies on top of lies. Amazing.... and what's even more amazing is that you guys comment as if it's real.

You're all warm and cozy in this make-believe fantasy world fed to you by bloggers -- swallowing the lies they tell you without even checking.

Allen:

Synova,

I used Air America as an example, but will concede to your knowledge on CBS. I honestly think all politicians should go on any network, and no matter what network it is, should broadcast the event in a fair manner. No network related mouth piece should be able to try and spin what was said. That means both parties.

I have heard many political speeches, and soon as it's done some dumb ass speaker comes on and tries to tell me this is what the person really said, and it's completely wrong. It's all the SPIN the networks want to put on it, and try to brain wash you with.

When will the BS quit. I can hear what the "critter" running for office says, I don't need the BS that comes after the speech. Now, am I right or wrong on that? I would like a answer to a honest question, from anyone.

I watched the video... the whole thing... and it was just exactly what was said at the link. Sawyer was laughing but she did seem to be surprised, if nothing else, that he'd corrected her and she used the word attacked, which is weird.

Not saying she was upset, but she seems to have viewed his words, even if good-natured as an "attack" of sorts. He seems baffled at the word and laughs too.

Why don't you follow your own advice and find real things to be upset over.

She needs to go back to tough interviews, like the one with the nutjob from Iran and ask him what is in his Ipod. LOL. What a joke.

Speaking of wussy liberals who can't take it, Laurie David was on CNBC with Joe Kernan and he asked her a few tough questions about global warming and she gets all flustered and uncomfortable. (she also smiles, but we know she didn't mean it. YOU GET IT LEE - you're busted.

How do we know she was pissed because of a few tough questions? She goes immediately to the Huffington Post and reams Kernan. Go to newsbuters and check it out. Then check out the responses to her post. MOST don't agree with Laurie and her man made global warming BS, and even those who agree with her say she did a terrible job of responding.

Lee:

Jo: "Diane may have been laughing and smiling (as newsbusters admits)"

Nope, they lied. They never pointed out that she was laughing when she said it, and implied that she was offended and pissed. That's why you didn't include a quote from Newsbusters where they said she was laughing -- it's not there. And no link from Lorie or Newsbusters to the video so you could see for yourself!

We had two big lies yesterday on Wizbang -- that the Iraqi Parliament building was outside of the green zone, and this one -- which claimed that Sawer was offended. Clearly she wasn't; her
remarks were a joke.

Still no correction from Kim on her post which lied about the Parliament building. Maybe Kim feels she doesn't have to issue a correction because it's her opinion that the building was outside of the green zone, despite the plethora of links in the comment thread that it's in the zone, and even a quote and link to a State department spokesmen confirming it's in the green zone.

Just more lies from Republicans...

"There were big smiles on both sides,"

I read the newsbusters thing, watched your video link from beginning to end, and what I watched was *exactly* what I expected. It was not misrepresented. The interpretation that Sawyer may have been genuinely feeling as though Elder had made it personal isn't far fetched. "Ha ha, I can't believe you attacked me!" "Ha Ha Ha, I didn't attack you!" They both seemed stunned at the other person's behavior, though not angry, just surprised.

You claimed something else had gone on, that the quote was misleading, "eliminating a large portion of the interview that must have explained Sawyer's comment - can't have that!" you said.

Nothing else in the interview explains Sawyer's comment so you're the liar, Lee. There was absolutely nothing elsewhere in the interview. They never even mentioned free speech, IIRC, until Sawyer said something about free speech issues on all sides, as a wrap up, and Elder corrected her.

And free speech means he can attack her, ha ha ha?

How do the wide smiles explain that choice of description. It's just weird.

Is it huge shattering news? Not at all. Cry me a river.

I just watched the video and Diane is smiling (as newsbusters says) but she wasn't laughing (as Lee claims) as she said it, she laughed a little nervous cackle at the end, which wasn't really a laugh as the video shows. The video only reinforces newsbusters point - they should have linked it.

So newsbusters is right (as usual) and Lee is wrong again. But hey Lee, thanks for the video link that proved you wrong! How gallant of you! :)

Oh, Lee. You pathetic loser. Will you feel all better about the world if I apologize for reading "wide smiles" getting in my mind that the interview ended with some joviality and thought that "laughed" was in there after the fact?

This is the sort of "lie" that you go on about and that, Lee, is why you can keep hitting your head against this wall to no effect whatsoever. Why take you seriously if this is what you consider serious wrongdoing? Can't find any real lies to get all het up over?

Nevermind your lies, not having either read the transcript and description nor having found and watched the video, that the transcript was deceptive. It wasn't. And I'd put money on betting that you watched the video *without* reading the description before you made your first howl of vindication.

The transcript and description led me to expect exactly what I watched on the video.

This is what I said (my "lie" I suppose) after reading the transcript and before watching the video.

Me: "I don't know if Sawyer was actually upset at all. Didn't see it. Didn't see her expression. Didn't see if her smile looked a bit forced. Calling it an attack is strange but it might have just been a poor word choice.

If she *was* hurt by Larry Elder's correction it's got to do with her, because what he said was by no means out of line."

Well, Lee, it seems that to me, at least, the terrible transcript did not demand any terrible conclusions which is why I carefully said that we couldn't see what her reaction was even if her choice of words seemed very strange.

Watching the video I have the same reaction. Was she really upset? I don't know if she was. I think it's possible.

Me: "The interpretation that Sawyer may have been genuinely feeling as though Elder had made it personal isn't far fetched. "Ha ha, I can't believe you attacked me!" "Ha Ha Ha, I didn't attack you!" They both seemed stunned at the other person's behavior, though not angry, just surprised."

So what, if anything at all, that I said about the transcript, video, and interpretation of expressions and voice, are a lie, Lee?

That I remembered that the transcript specifically made clear that both parties were distinctly cheerful, or seemed to be, and forgot the exact wording used?

Here's your lie, Lee. You described the transcript as, "...an out-of-context snip of a transcript without any indication that she's laughing while she says the quoted remark..."

Two out and out untruths, Lee. That the transcript was an "out-of-context snip" when the transcript seems to have been the whole interview, beginning to end, at least it's the same as the video. And then "without any indication that she's laughing" when it clearly *indicated* that there was good humor by saying "wide smiles" and making a point to point that out. But you didn't read that.

Oh, and three lies, because you claimed that something *else* in the interview must have explained the "attack me" comment. And it doesn't.

But lord help me, I remembered the joviality but not the wording of the description.

Yes, Lee. You keep on with your valuable public service, digging out our conservative lies. No doubt it keeps you out of trouble.
