I guess not all reporters and media outlets have been slurping the poisoned koolaid from the Fountain of O. WFTV Channel 9’s Barbara West opted not ask the typical softball questions to Democratic VP candidate Joe “Gaffalot” Biden.
West asked about Sen. Barack Obama’s comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn’t himself being a Marxist with the “spreading the wealth” comment.
“Are you joking?” said Biden, who is Obama’s running mate. “No,” West said.
West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America’s days as the world’s leading power were over.
“I don’t know who’s writing your questions,” Biden shot back.
The Obama campaign was so unhappy about the Chutzpah of Barbara West’s questions that they canceled a interview that was scheduled with Jill Biden, Mr Gaffalot’s old lady.
From Michelle Malkin:
Why did Barack Obama’s campaign cancel a WFTV-Channel 9 interview with Jill Biden, wife of Sen. Joe Biden? The campaign cited “an unprofessional interview” WFTV’s Barbara West did Thursday with Joe Biden. In a statement Friday, Adrianne Marsh, Florida spokeswoman for Obama’s campaign, said the station, in talking with Sen. Biden, was “both combative and woefully uninformed about simple facts.” Marsh said West’s insistence that Obama was an organizer for ACORN was “100 percent false.” “In a line of questioning that would make Rush Limbaugh proud, West even went as far as to quote Karl Marx, a Communist icon, in a disturbing attempt to associate Barack Obama with socialism,” Marsh wrote. West said, “I think I asked him some pointed questions. . . . I don’t think I was rude or inconsiderate to him.”
How dare the media ask such questions of the Obamessiah. Don’t they know who he is? He is their lord and savior and they have no right to ask such questions about their “Dear Leader”.
Team Obama have gotten way to use to the all fluff and no stuff questions posed by the biased media. It was a refreshing change to see real journalism in action and to see Joe Biden slapped around.
