After being asked to respond to the a quote from the DSM hearing, Condi dodges the issue of the legality of the Iraq war.

George Stephanopoulis is happy to give Condi's spin some free air time and he doesn't bother to ask a single follow-up question.

David thinks it was utterly pathetic journalism.

AmericaBlog thinks" And she basically refused to even mention the memo, didn't undercut it, didn't even mention it. And Stephanopoulos, in classic MSM journalism, didn't follow up, didn't say "uh, mam, you didn't answer the question," nothing. These guys honestly think journalism is asking one question and not following up, no matter what the other guy says. Amazing.
