Joe Kernan takes on the NYT, citing specific reporting nonsense/bias and literally rips up the paper on air. Another spontaneous applaud moment on CNBC

I love this new endorsement...."Thank God for Johnny Dollar!" --John Gibson.  
Johnny, you saved the day...It appears Gibson had no earthly idea what he'd actually said....And turned to you for a prompted reminder.

As though you'd have believed Gibson about what he said or believe atape issued by FNC afterwards.

and perhaps Haggy should be reminded that J$ saved his bacon too by not allowing a Haggis post, which perpetuated the Gibson false smear, to appear on J$P.

Thank God JD got the truth up quickly and that his blog was linked by TVN.  
 
Gibson surmises that this is what caused Mr. Sanders to get nervous and add the annotation.
 
Without that admission, you'd forever be impugning Gibson's assurances of "what he actually said".

The video is know out there....I'm certain it will be thrown up again and again in the month/years to come.
Did we get out the wrong side...this morning....you appear angry...."you'd forever be impugning..." No I wouldn't...proof has been shown....I accept it...End of story.

Beck just closed his show announcing his ratings for the past month. #1 in the time slot and #3 for all of Cable News.
 
And Olby has been on for how many years, he's struggling to stay out of fourth place in his time slot, and he's what for all of cable news????

Yeah, rtight Haggard.
 
I'm sure JC was all atremble b/c he couldn't remember if he accused EH of having a BBS.
 
I'm sure he sighed in relief that Johnny had saved him.
 
You're going from the rediculous to the sublime.

Haggis, I'm not angry. I'm direct.
 
For for a guy who has passed on every blueblog distortion and outright lie about everyone from Gretchen Carlson to Bill O'Reilly (including some of your own inventions), you are completely clueless as to the credibility of your assurances.

Why are folk trying to convince themselves that I wouldn't accept any proof shown by FNC....about Gibson?
let me enlighten.....I've only seen the proof J$ provided....I've accepted that and moved on. It appears folk are simply trying to spread a false smear about my good self.

In the U.S. we call it coffee-to-go and a donut, but I'm sure "dusty bin holding a log" is a British euphemism for the Brit cuisine version...
