Damn, this was on Jon Stewart last night, and I wrote about it yesterday morning, but had been sitting on the draft all day. Grrr... But at least now you can see the video of Wolf showing what good journalists do. (It's in the post below.)
The blogs have been known to be tough on Wolf sometimes, but he did a great job on Sunday doing what a real journalist should do - asking tough questions, and not simply accepting a statement as true simply because a Republican says it's so.
Huffington Post has the transcript and the video:
Blitzer: Well you don't have any evidence though, right?Now that's journalism.
Rep. McHenry: Well look at the fact points...four weeks out from a national election...
Blitzer: Yes or no: do you have any evidence? Do you have any evidence Congressman?
Rep. McHenry: Do you have any evidence that says they weren't involved?
Blitzer: I'm just asking if you're just throwing out an accusation or if you have any hard evidence.
Rep. McHenry: No, it's a question Wolf. The question remains, were they involved? And if they were not involved they need to say clearly, and it's a question, it's not an accusation.
Blitzer: Well, they are denying that they had anything to do with this.
