At long last, a reporter is grilled about her personal political agenda...it's about time....
Too bad she is a Republican!
A Florida-based TV reporter, Barbara West, asked Joe Biden:
'You may recognize this famous quote. "From each according to his abilities, to each according to his needs." That's from Karl Marx. How is Sen. Obama not being a Marxist if he's intending to spread the wealth around? "
Sen. Joe Biden replies: "Are you joking? Is this a joke?"
Can you imagine McCain or Palin responding to a journalist's question which a dismissive and insultive answer?
According to a CNN.com story (read here: http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/28/west.biden.king.qanda/index.html), West appeared on Larry King Live, and King asked of her: "The Orlando Sentinel reports that you are registered as a Republican; your husband is a Republican strategist. Is that true?"
Why aren't there any journalists asking Katie Couric, Tom Brokaw, Andrea Mitchell, and 99% of the NYT staff about their party allegiance?
