Weekend pundit shows

I missed Meet the Press with Rumsfeld this weekend, but thought this dialogue was interesting.

Incidently, I did catch a rebroadcast of Chris Matthew's weekend show where he had Hugh Hewitt on as part of his panel (along with the Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel and two others.) Hewitt was in a different class when it came to talking points and facts. At the end of the segment, where Chris asks each member of the panel to tell him something he doesn't know, Hewitt predicted that the Eason Jordan story would finally break this week. Astonishingly, the look and response from Chris was that he hadn't heard about Mr. Jordan's ridiculous and baseless charges that the US military was targeting journalists. It's mind boggling that after about a week and a half of this story catching fire on the blogs, that Chris Matthews was unaware of it. Did CBS Memogate teach him anything?
