    Between this and that abortion of an interview on WLS with Charlie Gibson, this certainly isn't one of the All Barack Channel's banner days. :lol:

    Since I hate all news casters, I can't feel any less for them. But this is the problem with news, they actually air the truth about something that happens, and then they apologize for it ... what the fuck?

    You obviously have no idea, or don't care about, the conventions of journalism. When something is off the record, it is off the record.

    Nothing is "off the record" ... and for those who work in the government "off the record" does not exist. Period.

    Saying something is "off the record" is basically lying, it's saying you didn't say what you really said.

    Usually when someone wants to say something and they want it off the record, they will say, "this is off the record".

    In this instance n00bama was caught by a live mic. There was no "off the record". That is a cop out by the msm.

    I personally don't have a problem with Obama calling West a jackass. Kanye happens to be a jackass.



    My problem is ABC acting like the pussywhipped wimps and liberal shills that they are.



    There would be no problem using sometihng they happened to catch aa conservative saying.

    And there certainly would NOT be any kind of apology.

    Wasn't there a conservative Congressman just recently caught on the mic? Why, yes there was. Any apologies? :lol::lol::lol:

    Cheney was caught on a hot mic agreeing that NYT's Adam Clymer was an asshole. Any apologies? :lol::lol::lol:

    It's accepted convention that anything said before the interview begins is off-the-recrod.
