Meanwhile this is newsworthy because it's hilarious.

Although who would want to live across the river from Americans?
Wait, what? The two Vancouvers aren't across from each other. Vancouver WA is along the southern border of the state, next to Oregon. Vancouver BC is the other way.

Ah, you see, I was originally replying to the electoral map featuring Washington State joining Canada.

I love when he says "I don't know who is writing your questions". That has to be a Fox affiliate.

YouTube - Best. Interview. Evah! Barbara West vs. Joe Biden

Honestly, I think that interview just shows what a mouthpiece that woman is. She doesn't even engage Biden--she doesn't respond to anything at all. All she does is read questions. What a tool. Biden, IMO, handles himself very well. Hell, even if I disagreed with what he says, I'd still think that woman was nothing but a mouthpiece. What terrible interviewing skills!

Yes, I thought that was pretty funny too. To be fair, these regionals would only have one shot with the candidates and it only lasts a couple of minutes, so they would feel like they have to get as many Q’s in during that time as possible, but her style regardless is terrible, it’s like she won a competition to ask the questions and she’s got her 5 written down on a card and no matter what Biden says, she has no response, no understanding, just “Right, next question!” Especially noticeable when she (or whoever wrote the questions) is trying to be controversial. It’s not like they’re “Boxers or briefs? Coke or Pepsi?” questions.

Speaking of the media, I think Fox News are in the process of having a fairly serious collective mental breakdown.

I still love how they complain about the evil liberal mainstream media outlets being in the tank for Obama and how terrible this is for America, while presenting a Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Vote for Obama, all with a straight face.

Yet to see a Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Not Vote for McCain on CNN. Did I miss it?

It appears to be an ABC affiliate

http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_tv_tvblo...

WFTV's Barbara West on her interview with Joe Biden: "I don't think I was rude or inconsiderate to him"

The Barack Obama campaign called Barbara West's interview with Sen. Joe Biden unprofessional and combative.

The veteran WFTV-Channel 9 anchor-reporter says she asked pointed questions and respects Sen. Biden, who is Sen. Obama's running mate.

In a call to me Friday evening, West (pictured) said of Biden: "I have a great deal of respect for him. I have a great deal of respect for Sen. Obama. We are given four minutes of a satellite window for these interviews. Four precious minutes. I got right down to it and, yes, I think I asked him some pointed questions. These are questions that are rolling about right now and questions that need to be asked. I don't think I was rude or inconsiderate to him. I think I was probing and maybe tough. I can't believe that in all of his years in politics, and all of his campaigning and such, that he hasn't run into some tough questions before. He's certainly up to it in giving good answers."

The problem isn't that she was "tough." I don't think she really was. The problem is that she had such an obvious angle. What kind of question is "Are you embarrassed about ACORN...?" Seriously? Would any serious journalist ask about being embarrassed about ACORN, especially knowing the interviewee's stance on the subject?
