CNN Anchor Praises Felt; America Yawns
Media Research Center has put together an excellent piece showcasing the treatment the MSM gave to Watergate "hero" Felt versus the criminals and miscreants of Monicagate (which did not include the Clintons, according to the MSM).
"I just think -- I don't know, 'hero,' that's not a word I throw around. But in just looking at the landscape at the time, what Washington was like, it does make a kind of moral sense to me." -- CNN NewsNight anchor Aaron Brown, on Mark Felt, May 31, 2005.Other tidbits, including seemingly contrary quotes from Dan "Superscript" Rather are available here.
"Accept for a moment this premise. There will be no winners in the impeachment battle going on, no heroes are going to emerge from this mess, that when all is said and done, the landscape will be littered with losers of varying sorts. Ms. Lewinsky, whose life is forever changed, Ms. Tripp, who will never seem heroic, Judge Starr will be no winner, and Mr. Clinton will be the biggest loser of all." -- ABC Good Morning America/Sunday anchor Aaron Brown, November 22, 1998.
