CNN's John King and his political panel discuss Rep. Anthony Weiner's recent Twitter scandal.
I'm actually appalled at the way CNN is acting over this story. Even if it was Weiner himself who sent the photo, it was sent to a college student (over 21), and was deleted before she could even view it.
Plus, the story was started by Andrew Breitbart, the same guy behind the Shirley Sherrod non-story.
Furthermore, when CNN says that Weiber was "following" this girl on Twitter, they are not explaining that this is on the same level as "friending someone on Facebook. The congressman is not "stalking" or "harrassing" anyone.
But hey, I guess you wanted to use Fox News' recipe for ratings. How classy.
Hey J, What if it was Bill O'Reilly?
I hear what Rep. Weiner is saying and honestly don't care if he sent the picture or not but my gut is telling me he's lying. If he's lying about something like this then I don't have any confidence in him to govern my country.
Please CNN, that is such an nonsense. I Sex sells or not. I guess he is not that stupid to do such a funny thing like that.. Sensation journalism at its best. Please not.John King. You and I mean only you here are not that sensation journalist.You are too good for that kind of cheap story..
How does telling us about much you like and respect Weiner Wife progress the story? Why not ask him about all the 'hot chicks" he follows on Twitter? Do only Democrats get a pass at CNN? Oh well, I have to hand it to you, all that good practice you got helping BIll I DID NOT HAVE SEX WITH THAT WOMAN Clinton has prepared you well for Little I DID NOT HAVE TEXTUAL RELATIONS WITH THAT WOMAN Weiner. PS...the economy went down 300 points today, and we could sure use some good Weiner puns to make us laugh
