A tribute to Condoleeza Rice and George W. Bush who, despite voluminious evidence to the contrary, said, "I don't think anybody could have predicted that these people would take an airplane and slam it into the World Trade Center, take another one and slam it into the Pentagon, that they would try to use an airplane as a missile," adding that "even in retrospect" there was "nothing" to suggest that" and "I don't think anyone anticipated the breach of the levees," respectively.

Professional Training: An intense two-day seminar, the Broadcast Journalism School... (See Below)

(Did Bush call on him knowing he’d get a bailout question? Explain why he wasn’t interrupted during his question like so many of the other reporters. I have to conclude that this guy is a planted shill and that the CIC went into hiding behind Gannon’s partisan question.)

Take one look at Talon News’ website and you’ll see that it’s just a rudimentary website with links to other right-wing websites. Are they even a news organization?

If you don’t know by now, Jeff Gannon asked the following question at the recent Presidential lie fest:

Q. Thank you. Senate Democrats have painted a very bleak picture of the U.S. economy. Harry Reid was talking about soup lines and Hillary Clinton was talking about the economy being on the verge of collapse. Yet, in the same breath, they say that Social Security is rock-solid and there’s no crisis there. How are you going to work – you said you’re going to reach out to these people – how are you going to work with people who seem to have divorced themselves from reality?

Rush Limbaugh questioned the accuracy of the statements within the question. Limbaugh contends Reid never said "soup lines" and Gannon must have gotten it from listening to Rush's radio show. Nice vetting, dildo. BTW, Gannon is a major critic of CBS and routinely refers to the disputed memos as fakes or fraudulent like a good, little whore.

Limbaugh bragged that his show inspired Talon News "reporter's" erroneous question to Bush


Jeff Gannon’s Resume as seen at the Talon News website:

Jeff lives on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC and covers the White House for Talon News. He writes a syndicated column, "Jeff Gannon's Washington," that appears on his website: www.jeffgannon.com.

He is a frequent guest on talk radio appearing on nationally syndicated and local shows.

Jeff is a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University System and holds a Bachelor of Science in Education. He is also a graduate of the Leadership Institute Broadcast School of Journalism.


Sounds impressive. Here is the course description from which he graduated. Looks to me like a friggin two day, $50 seminar and this asshole lists it as one of his major professional accomplishments.

The Broadcast Journalism School is a one-stop, full-service seminar for conservatives who want a career in journalism. You'll learn information you won't receive anywhere else and get personalized advice from our expert faculty:

Learn how to find good internships and make the most of them

Gain networking skills to help you land your job and increase your effectiveness

Develop a top-notch resume and learn how to make yourself stand out in an interview

Learn a proven, step-by-step job hunting strategy and much more
An intense two-day seminar, the Broadcast Journalism School is designed to give aspiring journalists the skills necessary to bring balance to the media and succeed in this highly competitive field.

For $50, you'll receive two days of instruction, meals on Saturday and Sunday and all course materials. Limited free housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis.


BTW, this is how they promote themselves: “Talon News is your source for unbiased news coverage and no-spin reporting.”

So, this guy has no credentials other than his perverted, right-wing viewpoint yet he is part of the White House press corps and is routinely called upon by Scott McClellan. Bush calls upon him during a “rare” press conference when there are real journalists there with real questions.

This propaganda machine is very, very scary!
