CBS News Hires Longtime Bush Flak As On-Air Analyst

Nicolle Wallace, who was White House Communications Director until July, has joined CBS News as a political consultant.

Wallace has a long association with the Bushes, serving as director of communications for the 2004 campaign, as director of media affairs in President Bush's first term, and press secretary for Bush's brother and Florida Governor Jeb Bush.

She will "provide on-air analysis on a variety of political issues, including the upcoming 2006 elections," CBS News announced.

It'll be interesting if any conservative ranters wonder aloud whether Wallace will provide unfair "conservative media bias." The same folks were hot to jump all over former Clinton communications director George Stephanopoulos after he joined ABC in 1997 as a political analyst -- even when the praise came from ABC News' Diane Sawyer, a one-time Nixon and Ford staffer!

Something tells me the conservative ranters will look the other way with Wallace.

Edward R. Murrow must be rolling in his grave

Cronkite must be shitting steel pellets...and Rather is surely disgusted.

As far as the rightwingnuts go, they'll look at Miz Wallace as a "centrist" because to do anything else will cause unbearable cognitive dissonance.

At this rate of disinformation and infotainment

Morrow must be at some phenomenal spin rate...

We could solve the energy crises if only we could attach a dynamo to his casket.

I had no idea how bad CBS had become

I switched to ABC when Miss Perky took over, and the difference is unmistakable. One night last week, I had the misfortune of catching LaCouric's intro. It went something like, "Hugo Chavez got up at the UN today and insulted the President of the United States. She was shocked, I tell you, shocked! that anyone would do such a thing.

Gibson on ABC did the same piece something like, "Hugo Chavez delivered a blistering criticism of President Bush, and the audience loved it." The followed that with Chavez saying he could still smell the sulphur and general laughter.

It is no longer the network of Murrow, Cronkite and Rather not even of Mike Wallace and, in the near future, no doubt, that of Lesley Stahl and Ed Bardley.

We don't even watch "60 Minutes" any more... having a game before that helps, too.

It's not an earth-shaking story, but it's noteworthy. Why are you so defensive?
