The Guide: How Dick Cheney Uses "Meet The Press" To Control The Message

cheney-nbc-lies.jpg With the news on the Pentagon and Douglas Feith's breaking today--("inappropriate" actions in advancing conclusions on al-Qaida connections not backed up by the nation's intelligence agencies)---I wanted us to see how these manipulations were put into play on Meet the Press, the show that the OVP thought was the perfect place to "control the message."

From Hardball 11/08/05. Remember when Dick Cheney said it was pretty well confirmed before he didn’t?

In ‘01, Cheney said this on MTP:

CHENEY: It‘s been pretty well confirmed that he did go to Prague and he did meet with a senior official of the Iraqi intelligence service in Czechoslovakia last April.

on 6/19/04 CNBC, he said:

GLORIA BORGER, TV SHOW HOST: You have said in the past that it was, quote, “pretty well confirmed.”

CHENEY: No, I never said that. BORGER: OK.

CHENEY: I never said that. BORGER: I think that is…

CHENEY: Absolutely not.

Back to you Tim....
