WHAT DID HE NOT KNOW AND WHY DID HE NOT KNOW IT? . . . NBC White House correspondent Dave Gregory, asked by radio host Don Imus this morning on MSNBC whether previous national security advisors had testified under oath before commissions such as the currently seated 9/11 Commission, said he did not know. To which Imus: Why don't you know? You're the NBC White House correspondent and you don't know that? To which Gregory, bristling, voice rising: Hey, I'm honest enough to tell you I don't know.
Honest enough? Not to lie to us? He wants a medal?
Imus: Find out and tell us, OK? Gregory: OK. Then Gregory went on to Iran-Contra testimony and other things he JUST HEARD ABOUT from newscasts, naturally to bolster the anti-administration argument.
Gregory has no reading background in these matters? He takes not the time for a Google search, for God's sake, to discover precedent for this testimony that Condoleeza Rice won't give because she's National Security Advisor? Where's the context beyond what happened yesterday? Where's the compared-to-what factor? These jokers get on the air and feed us the news they think is important but know so little?
