Radio host Bill Press on his tepid support for action in Libya compared to the war in Iraq:

‘Hold your nose and support it for now’ is a lot different from the conservative people…that just said rah, rah, rah, George Bush and Dick Cheney, go, go, go.


Ted Koppel on the media providing “popcorn” rather than “broccoli” and “steak:”

“There’s no way of saying this, Howard, without sounding a little bit like an old man who is losing touch with new technology, but…in a democracy, an uninformed electorate is the greatest danger that there is.”

Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin on the coverage of Michele Bachmann:

“There’s a bit of sexism and a bit of dismissiveness from a lot of the liberal media that she’s completely out of her league.”
