ARC's 1st Law: As a "progressive" online discussion grows longer, the probability of a nefarious reference to Karl Rove approaches one

Right-Wing New York Times Journalists are Shills for the Bushies

At least, that's the impression you get from the comments left by the Moonbats over at Charlie Rose's site.

For those that missed it, Charlie Rose interviewed, John F. Burns, Dexter Filkins - two journalists from that right-wing rag, the New York Times - on Wednesday night. The video is an hour, but more actual information about the facts on the ground is discussed in this one hour interview than all of the hearings this week in the Senate. (Memo to the US Senate - It seems that if a the person who's supposed to ask questions actually, you know - ask questions instead of making statements, information can actually be exchanged and people can learn something.)

One of the most interesting statements in the video comes from Dexter, who mentions that today soldiers returning from some parts of Iraq are not getting combat medals - because they are not encountering any combat operations during their tour!

Here are a few of the deranged comments left on the site:

Congratulations, Charlie! You managed to find not one, but TWO apologists for this insane, catastrophic, totally unjustifiable invasion and occupation. How could you sit there for SO long with this gibberish going on in front of you?

You are correct, my friend. Charlie has gone hard right proven constantly by guest selection. Last night's guests were laid out in yesterday's blogs, aweful, failed to disclose key conflicts of interests to his listeners. Rose gave the desk to Bill Kristol when Rose left town, that says it all. Rose has been in sheeps clothing too long. Bill gets a big laugh at it. You can make Rose do anything if you show him a little intrigue, he's hooked. He's now with the intrigue sect of the war party. Rose can't adjust, it's too late.

Gee thanks, One pro war, pro status quo (Burns) vs. one we must stay the course Filkin (4th rate general supporter (Gen. Betray us), plus a Gadfly (Rose). Not very fourth estate kinda stuff, shame on you, cowards.

Perhaps these hippie scumbags should be sleeping at 3.00 in the morning and commenting when they're not so...err... under the influence.

Great program, Charlie! It's great to see the moonbats carping on you featuring two journalists from that right-wing rag, the New York Times. I also see that you have that ultra-conservative George Soros on tonight. Throughout the interview (as with his interview with David Kilcullen) Charlie kept grasping at how the US could leave Iraq in the near term... not sure how that shows his bias in favor of continuing our support for Op Iraqi Freedom.
