Cynthia McKinney Asks Chertoff Tough Question
Reported by Deborah - October 19, 2005
Brian Wilson reported on the Katrina hearings during Special Report tonight and the keys figures in his report were Jeb Bush and Cynthia McKinney. Jeb Bush, of course, praised himself and FEMA while Cynthia McKinney was shown asking Chertoff a brilliantly honest question. 10/19/05
Jeb Bush, FNC's favorite Governor, claimed that his experiences with FEMA were very different adding that the services provided work better in communities that are prepared. The Bush arrogance was quite evident in this not too subtle indictment of Louisiana efficiency.
Cynthia McKinney, on FNC's top 10 list of most bashable liberals, was shown asking Chertoff this question.
" If the Nursing Home owners were charged with negligent homicide, why weren't you all charged?"
It was reported that Chertoff took his time answering McKinney and when he finally responded he seem contrite, puzzled and unable to account for everything that went wrong.
comment: This little spin really backfired for FOX. Since GW is not exactly Mr. Popularity among even FOX viewers anymore, this image of Jeb had to make matters worse. Jeb came off like one of those self righteous egomaniacs that nobody can stand. In the past, FOX could have used Cythia McKinney's question as an example of the out of control behavior from the Bush hating Left but those days are gone. Tonight Cynthia McKinney looked like a hero to me and I bet there are plenty of die hard Fox fans who would agree.
