Gannon used a green map to show how red the country is. He goes to a widely publicized event and uses green ink. Quote: "...even though this represents the red-blue county map, it's actually green because I ran out of ink on my printer."

The Talent Show says: Not that I'm trying to make the argument that liberals outnumber conservatives or vice versa, I'm just saying that holding up a map and saying "look at all that red/green" as a way of backing up your point is pretty goddamned retarded.

Wonkette got pissed when Jimmy/Jeff defended Armstrong Williams with the most idiotic defense you can imagine. The go'vt had to pay for NCLB because nobody would print good things about it. That's a journalist folks!

Here's a right winger's response to the panel: The vilification of Jeff Gannon continued today at the National Press Club. I haven't found anymore righties commenting on it yet.

Jeff Gannon says he was threatened by Rogers. As I was boarding an elevator to exit the building, this same person made a dash for me with unknown intent...If you saw this person's behavior, you would realize that the threats against my person, property and family have not been exaggerated.

Mike Rogers at blogActive tried to get Gannon to answer some questions after the meeting and responds to the charges by Gannon: I joined Gannon on the elevator heading to the lobby. Gannon raised his fists at me as if to threaten me (some people will do anything to stop a story, huh?) and attempted to intimidate me off of the elevator. read on

Update:Digby has his opinions too: New Star: He makes absolutely no sense, wanders off into unrelated subjects, claims victimhood at every turn, avoids questions like a pro and appears to me to be incredibly stupid, arrogant and deluded all at the same time. A clown that nobody in their right mind could take seriously. In others words, meet the next GOP nominee for President of the United States.
