'That Was A Loaded Question There, Luke!': Republican Rep. Chaffetz Calls Russert Out

When conservatives appear on MSM shows, they regularly get raked over the coals. Frustratingly, the conservative guests rarely call their interviewers out for their obvious lefty bias.
So it was refreshing to see Republican Congressman Chaffetz of Utah refuse to let Luke Russert's liberal slant slide. In the guise of a question, Russert, subbing for Andrea Mitchell on her MSNBC show today, confronted Chaffetz with a contentious bit of editorializing against the "Ted Cruz, Mike Lee rabbit hole." Chaffetz called Russert on it: "That was a loaded question there, Luke."

Another disappointment. These threads talk about someone getting “blasted” or “called out”, it’s usually more like a wrist slap.

It was handled well: you don’t want to come off looking like a jerk - just need to make it known that you’re on to their game and move along.

“Ted Cruz, Mike Lee rabbit hole.”——And that’s the ass kissing apology to Cruz who was right. He didn’t mention that though, commie prick.

OMG, if that is being “called out” we are in more trouble than I thought.
