Weekend Show *Preview* for 3/25 - 3/26 (not the live thread)
Network and Cable News | 3/23/06 | Network and Cable News Networks

Posted on 03/24/2006 5:11:37 PM PST by Phsstpok

Journal Editorial Report (Paul Gigot) - FNC show page

The Beltway Boys (Mort Kondracke, Fred Barnes)

Fox News Watch (Eric Burns)

Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace)

CNBC'S TIM RUSSERT SHOW (Tim Russert)

NBC Meet The Press (Tim Russert)

CBS Face The Nation (Bob Schieffer)

ABC This Week (George Stephanopoulos)

CNN Late Edition (Wolf Blitzer)

This is NOT intended to be the live Sunday Morning Talk Show thread. I trust AB will do that as usual. This is strictly a preview of who will be on the main shows. The idea is to give folks a chance to muster their resources for that thread.

I would particularly ask that anyone with specific knowledge or resources about the topics / guests announced for these shows post them here so that the rest of us can go into the shows with a heads up on what to look for.


TOPICS: Extended News; Foreign Affairs; Government; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: abcthisweek; arlenspecter; bumiller; carllevin; cnnlateedition; condoleezzarice; davidbroder; facethenation; foxnewssunday; genjoulwan; gentrainor; guests; immigration; iraq; johnharwood; kevinphillips; meetthepress; patroberts; reuelmarcgerecht; senjackreed; stephenhadley; sundaytalkshows; teddykennedy; tomtancredo; vandenheuvel
These are links to recent articles by or about this weeks guests that I think might give a clue as to why they have been invited on this week's shows

Ping

The Weekend Preview Thread is up

If you would like on or off my ping list please Freepmail me

The most interesting guest to me is Condi Rice.  How badly will they edit the interviews when they show the clips on the news?

The dominant meme appears to be that Bush has failed in Iraq, the GOP is running away from him, but Bush is so unpopular that the Republicans are doomed in November anyway.  And the Bush administration/conservatives/fascists/blogs are trying to blame the messenger for the bad news out of Iraq, but they're just doing their jobs and they never get anything wrong.

I will probably still be light on this and the Sunday thread.  I'm still having trouble with my eyes.  I've moved up my appointment with my surgeon to this Saturday, the 25th, instead of waiting for the 8th.  I'm hoping that he can help me so that I can function with just the right eye till it's time to try to fit some correction to the left eye.  I'm really hoping that he's not going to tell me that the keratoconus is advancing rapidly and that's why I can't focus and read with that eye.  AND THE SOAP OPERA CONTINUES

You think you're tired of this?  Imagine how my boss feels?  Imagine how I feel?  I really don't want to have to offer lame excuses anymore.

I count on others to carry the load again this week.  I shall return... I hope...!

on a separate note, may I recommend this thread to anyone who hasn't seen it:

This is just a drill: Thanks to John McCain, Free Republic will shut down tomorrow at high noon for
Free Republic ^

Edited on 03/24/2006 1:31:56 PM CST by Jim Robinson. [history]

Now hear this:

Thanks to John McCain, Free Republic will shut down tomorrow at high noon for 30 days. No non government approved electioneering messages may be transmitted over the internet for the 30 days immediately preceding a primary election.

That is all.


The above exercise was just a drill. But if John McCain has his way with his proposed rules for regulating political free speech on the internet, this is how we will be forced to operate in the coming election cycle and all election cycles in the future until we can get the unconstitutional McCain-Feingold act repealed.

One, don't you Ever sleep?  (Thinking of which, how are you?  Hope your eyesight is healing and that may be so judging from your post.)

 Two.  How DO you DO this?  Thanks for the information but I remain amazed with your ability to put all of this together so well, so quickly.

 Three.  Thank you for the heads up.  I missed it last weekend and appreciate the ping this evening.

Who knows what the Republicans in DC are thinking.  For the most part, those guys are too out to lunch for most Republicans in Red State America.

From a sales standpoint, it's a valid tactic to get the buyer to commit to a position.  For example, when a buyer says the price is too high the salesman will ask if this is the only objection preventing him from buying?  In other words, if the price were lower would you buy then, or is there another reason to not buy?  Once the prospect buys into the one single objection, the salesman has the opportunity to overcome it and close the sale.  If the buyer fails to buy once the bought-into objection is resolved, the buyer is exposed to the lie of his original objection.

The same way, Democrats  make claims and we have to hold them accountable for their positions or the current Bush Lied De Jur.  Republicans have not held Harry Reid and other Democrats accountable for their past accusiatons, and they now believe they can make claims without responsibility.  IF this is a procedure to make Democrats accountable, great.  If not, it will further alienate Republicans from our DC leadership.

I heard Chris Wallace on with Mike Gallagher this morning, and he said one thing he would tackle with Condi is the Muslim in Afghanistan, Mr. Rahman, that is supposed to be given the death penalty for being a Christian..

So....that subject could be hit by all of the Sunday Hosts...

Also...like you pointed out, the immigration reform will be hugh.

But, Levin just got back from Iraq, so we know he will talk about how AWFUL it is over there.

I wish this internet campaign bill that is supposed to be voted on...Jeb Hensarling in the House has the GOOD one...would come up as a subject, because it really affects we freepers..

PLUS, I am tired of hearing how "Bush lied, people died"...unless they want to give equal time to the documents that have shown just how much interaction there was between Saddam and Bin Ladin..

I see immigration being a WH v. Congress issue more than a DEM v. GOP issue, where the WH wants some form of guest worker program, but (a majority of) Congress seems to not. The DEMs in Congress are more likely to take the President's side on immigration.

The Afghani Christian may be a point of discussion, as a Bush "failure" in that "we" installed the government that isn't up in arms about the prospect of executing a person due to his conversion from Islam to Christianity. Note that the WH will be asking Congress for $$$ for Afghanistan activities, later this week.

The Senate Judiciary Committee will be hitting on the NSA Terrorist Surveillance Program in hearings again this coming week (Tuesday), and Feingold's censure resolution on Friday. In that vein, I expect a meme on the order of "Bush is a lawbreaker."

As you point out, Iraq and predictions of impending doom there is nearly a certainty, these days.

I sure don't know what Fox News Sunday is thinking lately...last week they had Durbin and no Rep. Senator to balance him...

This week, they have Levin, with no Republican Senator to balance him...

I am gonna complain now...looks like a trend that I don't like...

It would be different if every other week they had a single Rep.

I want the wife of the soldier who just returned from Iraq - Cavuto had her on Thursday (?) ---- her husband can be there also (just kidding). That was a great interview and FoxNews owes it to us for sticking by them, to have a full program interview with them, - even tho FoxNews have really let us down!!

Other than that - it will just be the same o same o junk.

Fire Rumsfeld - they now realize they can't fire Cheney!
Bush has failed! Civil war! When will we withdraw! on and on!!!

I will watch, however, because keeping up with their crap is important to me.

President Bush says --- If you are not with us you are against us! Well, I know where the media and the Democrats stand. They want failure and it does not matter how many lives are lost.

Notice ZERO coverage of the FEC rules restricting Free Speech. Notice no coverage of the creeping regulation of the 'net

Good morning Txsleuth.  No response last evening because I got off.  My nighttime hours on FR are limited.  Sorry.
 
I'm tired of all the Bush Lied crowd as well.  I guess it gets old after six years of constant harping.  The Democrats are saying "give us a chance and we'll do better with Iraq" but they have no plan and everything they say they would do is being done.
 
Finegold, Senator Soupy Sales, is at least consistant.  He's been against the war from the start.

Here is Mark Kilmer's brief preview from RedState.COM

Who is on the Sunday Morning Talk Shows

By: Mark Kilmer · Section: Other Politics


For Sunday, March 26, 2006

Meet the Press (NBC): Host Tim Russert spends his time with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace spends his time with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. (We also Carl Levin as a bonus.)

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer will chat with... oh, gawd... Ted Kennedy. He'll also have on National Security Advisor Stephen Hadley, so Ted won't have time to contribue too many greenhouse gases, melting the polar shelf or whatever.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos has Tom Tancredo and Alren Specter on to swap immigration plans.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer will talk to Rice, plus he'll have Pat Roberts square off against Jack Reed.
~~~~~

Secretary Rice. This is part of the White House offensive on Iraq, as is Hadley. Why Levin (FNS) and Ted (FTN)? Perhaps the Dems' A-squad of articulation was busy This would explain Reed, as well.

Steph, in search of a viewer or two, is going a different route this weekend, and immigration is a big deal at the moment. I doubt Snarlin' Arlen will buy into a proposal to build a giant dungeon under Colorado's Elbert County to House the illegal aliens who aren't shot, but the discussion might be interesting. I will post the review of these shows by 2p ET Sunday afternoon.

I find it bizarre that even someone like Kilmer from a conservative blog finds it necessary to imply that Tancredo wants to either shoot or throw all immigrants into some sort of dungeon. This could be a defining moment for him with a chance to break past the caricatures... or not.

RedState has been very low volume today because of the WaPo conservative blog scandal involving one of their founders apparent acts of plagerism.  They happened when he was 17 to 21, but he's only in his mid 20s now, so it's pretty damaging.  He's resigned from the WaPo blog and will probably have to start all over again to build a whole new career.

Well, since the Memphis Tigers don't seem to be able to find the net for love or money in the first quarter I'm really not too happy to watch this.

Did you know Bulletproof Monk is on FX?

I didn't see this specific story on any of the Saturday shows, but I bet a little bit of this makes it onto the Sunday shows, despite the MSMs best efforts:

Great transcript and great story about the woman who spoke up at Bush's town hall meeting and her husband just back from Iraq.  Maybe we're breaking through?

I saw that neanderthal, Chrissy Matthews attempt to interview them...and he had a very accusatory tone and words, basically accusing them of wanting the MSM to only tell good stories..

even if the have to scour all of Iraq to find one or two. He was very rude to those poor people.
