Journalist grilled about her political ideology

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?

Her husban is a paid political hack and why does she hat Mickey Mouse?

Not sure I understand why it matters what her husband does for a living...nor what his political affiliations are. I was talking about Best.

CA governor Arnold Schwartzeneger's (R) wife is a Democrat and a reporter. Does either blindly follow the other's agenda?

Ask tough questions then get questioned yourself? Let's hope not.

Fear not Chris! Congressional Democrats will soon bring back the "Fairness Doctrine" and soon The government will decide what is fair in reporting the news. They do everything else so well, I'm confident they'll be able to regulate "fairness" to assure we don't get the "wrong" information.

Of course, "sharing the wealth" will take a great deal of time, so They'll have to add new bureaucrats to the government, increasing employment.

Bri--don't go there with Chris. He supports "fairness"

It's not as if Obama is actually afraid of his Marxism being exposed, after all. He blatantly PARADES it in the media. He's going to TAKE from one group and GIVE to another ... instead of doing the rational thing of LEAVING ALL GROUPS TO PROSPER ON THEIR OWN.

Sheesh - just watched her interview with McCain, and she is TOUGH on both. Good for her....
