Finally, A Real Reporter

Give this news anchor the Tim Russert Award for 2008!

This interview was conducted by Barbara West with the ABC affiliate in Orlando.

Finally, a reporter who is not afraid to ask the Democratic ticket a hard question!


  1. I’m glad to see someone asking the questions that make Biden squirm. The Democrats socialist agenda should completely obvious to anyone who takes the time to research their plans. For Biden to react the way he did is very telling of the deception and dishonesty of the entire Obama campaign.

  2. Romo Lampkin says

    C’mon. Socialism? Marxism? That’s absurd. Face facts, people: Obama and McCain both believe in a progressive income tax. They only differ on how much more the rich should pay. If that were not the case, McCain would support a flat tax, but he does not.

    That interviewer looked like she was channeling Steven Colbert.

  3. If you think that is good reporting then you have such low standards that you likely have been brainwashed by too much FOX news.

  4. Her next question would have been:

    “Senator, were you surprised when it was determined that a large black man did NOT mutilate and rape Ashley Todd?”

    I’m surprised she didn’t ask Biden to take a loyalty oath.

  5. Iris Lynch says

    Maybe her questions weren’t the very best and she could have followed up better, still the expressions on Biden’s face were telling along with his “I don’t know who is writing your questions” (How did a conservative get into the studio?) AND the implied (“Little Lady, you are not capable of writing your own questions”).

    Actually I was impressed that Joe handled it as well as he did, considering the shock it must have caused him. After all, who has heard of ANY ‘reporter’ asking any tough questions of the Dems?

  6. This opinion piece, by a journalist, tells of an interesting purpose behind the HUGE media bias that has covered a multitude of Obama-Biden sins.

    Maybe this reporter didn’t get the memo.

  7. Oh, she got the memo:

    From Blue Tidal Wave –

    “Well it turns out that her husband, Wade West, is a political and media consultant for Republican politicians. The GOP talking points Barbara West used in her interview may have come directly from the McCain Palin communications team via her husband Wade.”

    Combine this with the McCain interview she did on 10/14… She’s as in the tank for McCain as Limbaugh and Hannity are…

  8. Romo Lampkin says

    Russert Award indeed! For making poor Tim spin in his grave, maybe. Has someone put a spell on you conservatives that makes you look nuttier with each day?
