02/21/2005: CNN's Blitzer gets BuzzFlash Cut
U.S. News Wire reports:
"Let's see: last week's BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week, Howard Kurtz, was connected to the prior week's Hypocrite, Jeff Gannon/Guckert, and this week's honoree is connected to both of them.
Now, we're not implying that the sartorial CNN star, Wolf Blitzer, had a military studs' romp with Gannon/Guckert while on a "date" to view the moonlit Iwo Jima War Memorial. But boy, Blitzer sure joined Kurtz in going out of their way to make Gannon/Guckert appear to be a victim of an overzealous mob of Internet bloggers and websites like, well, BuzzFlash.
Blitzer, ever the polite one when dealing with a sensitive issue that might blow up in the face of the White House, had Gannon/Guckert on his CNN program. What was Wolf's first question? How about, "Should I call you Jim or Jeff?" And from there the questions got even more soft ball for the GOP shill by day, gay military hooker by night.
You see, Wolf's job is not to analyze the news, it's to accomplish two things for CNN: First, to make sure no hair is out of place on his beard; and second, to protect the White House's flanks at all costs or lose his fat paycheck and D.C. status."
