bill-donohue-today.jpg Bill Donohue is now NBC's resident expert on the Middle East and higher learning issues in college campuses.<snark> How do I know? He was on with Matt Lauer Monday and told me so. Bill does seem to know a lot about propaganda though...And I thought he was just trying to save Christmas. Check out his violent rhetoric here---here---here---and don't forget that he blamed the kids for allowing Mark Foley to molest them. Some expert.

Since Noah Oppenheim has become a producer for TODAY, it has become littered with extreme right wing pundits. I watch it almost everyday because they feature hard news in the first hour. Read this detailed piece about Noah in the TV Newser. There seems to be a little tension there.

A 'Today' staffer says the assertion that his program is full of liberals is nonsense. He believes the editorial staff is 50/50, left and right. The show is fair and middle-of-the-road, and that's why Oppenheim's appointment is nerve-wracking: He seems unable to shed his political leanings and remain unbiased.

We all don't care what his politics are as long as he keeps them out of his segments. And now you'll understand why the Donohue's are on so much.

Please email Phil.Griffin@nbcuni.com and ask him why he's giving so much power to (read this Weekly Standard article) Noah Oppenheim, who used to be the EP for Scarborough. (Please be polite!) They are making a mockery out of the Today show. And this morning---guess who they had on as a very serious political analyst to tell us how the campaign trail for President is going? Bill Kristol.
