Shame on Barbara West, WFTV, Orlando, for her ignorant confrontational interview with Joe Biden. (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389x4304918)

It was absolutely ugly in nature, used ignorant talking points, and made our state look even more awful than usual.

Orlando people, if you don't contact the station you should hide your head in shame.

She did not even know how terrible her interview was. At one point Joe Biden asked her if she were kidding. It was that bad. Joe Biden did quite well in the face of such an ignorant interviewer. She was snide and pathetic and rude.

Here is the video:

Barbara West versus Joe Biden. Winner: Biden (http://www.wftv.com/video/17790025/index.html)

Joe was classy, she was just not even aware of how she sounded. She had talking points coming out of her ears, and did not seem to have the intelligence to know better.

Barbara West...pretty face. Not much else.

Here is more about it.

The Orlando Sentinel covered the fact that the Obama campaign promptly cancelled Jill Biden's intervew and others until further notice.

Obama campaign cuts off WFTV after interview with Joe Biden (http://blogs.orlandosentinel.com/entertainment_tv_tvblog/2008/10/obama-campaign.html)



WFTV-Channel 9's Barbara West conducted a satellite interview with Sen. Joe Biden on Thursday. A friend says it's some of the best entertainment he's seen recently. What do you think? West wondered about Sen. Barack Obama's comment, to Joe the Plumber, about spreading the wealth. She quoted Karl Marx and asked how Obama isn't being a Marxist with the "spreading the wealth" comment.

"Are you joking?" said Biden, who is Obama's running mate. "No," West said.
West later asked Biden about his comments that Obama could be tested early on as president. She wondered if the Delaware senator was saying America's days as the world's leading power were over.

"I don't know who's writing your questions," Biden shot back. Biden so disliked West's line of questioning that the Obama campaign canceled a WFTV interview with Jill Biden, the candidate's wife.

"This cancellation is non-negotiable, and further opportunities for your station to interview with this campaign are unlikely, at best for the duration of the remaining days until the election," wrote Laura K. McGinnis, Central Florida communications director for the Obama campaign. McGinnis said the Biden cancellation was "a result of her husband's experience yesterday during the satellite interview with Barbara West."

Here is the response of the WFTV News Director. He and Barbara West are making Floridians look very bad indeed.



WFTV news director Bob Jordan said, "When you get a shot to ask these candidates, you want to make the most of it. They usually give you five minutes. Jordan said political campaigns in general pick and choose the stations they like. And stations often pose softball questions during the satellite interviews.

"Mr. Biden didn't like the questions," Jordan said. "We choose not to ask softball questions."

Jordan added, "I'm crying foul on this one."


WRONG! Mr. Jordan. Candidates just assume that common courtesy and intelligence will be forthcoming in interviews.

Hiding in my head in shame as I often do now at things that happen in this sorry state.

:eek: :D

Wow! I really enjoyed Mrs. West's interview. I only wish more reporters would take the gloves off with the Obamessiah camp like she does in this interview. You have to watch the interview to truly appreciate Barbara West's skills.

Of course now the DUmp monkeys are going after her for asking some quite relevant questions(IMO) the the rest of the MSM is too afraid to ask. Feel free to thank Barbara West and WFTV for their great work in this interview, I just did. Here's the E-mail address: news@wftv.com

Sounds to me like she did a great job on old slow Joe Biden.They have been throwing softballs at these liberal boobs for long enough.Of course Obama is a Marxist/Socialist/Communist/Chicago ward healer/street thug/Acorn shifty legalEagle.
MS. West had the courage to ask Biden the right question and the Lib_Swine don't like it ,well tough titties !

Liberals always expect special treatment from their MSM and squeal like little piggies when they are asked a tough question .She must be new to the scene and they will need to send her to the liberal camps to have her brain bag removed,steam cleaned and re_filled with the liberal mantra !

I have to laugh at how bent out of shape they get whenever someone asks Obama or Biden a reasonable, thoughtful question.

It's also funny how they think that "their guy" always delivers the "smack down" on the reporter when stumble, belittle, and avoids the question.

Lots of hero worship and denial in that thread.

Once again the Moonbats go nuts.

We now have what I call " Plumber Syndrome"; in other words they don't like it when their folks get asked tough questions.

Look forward to the new state of America where questions will not be asked and those who do will become enemies of the state.

Nice world the Moonbats plan for the rest of us.

What's next I wonder? Gulags for those who dare question anything?

Looks like America is going to have to play by the rules of DU now; cherish these last few days for freedom kids, Moonbats aren't going to let that last long.

Keep your powder dry, your sword sharp and your wits intact.

The weather report is looking really bad.

A little translation is in order.


Quote Any Lib: This is wrong and not fair! NOT FAIR I SAY!!! You're not to ask these types of questions to liberal candidates. Only Rebublicans are thrown hardballs. Everyone knows that. You made Biden look like he was dodging questions when he was dodging questions and he shouldn't have to dodge questions. He's a lib and he doesn't have to state his real beliefs for the American people. They can find out after he's in office like the rest of us. I sense a stolen election!

I like how at about 3:30 on the video, "Stand Up Chuck" Biden starts to squirm in his seat.
