Media Research’s Notable Quotables 2005

Some of these will make you laugh – some will make you cry. But none of them should surprise you. After all, this is our esteemed ‘mainstream media’ hard at work to report the news — as they see fit.

They have several pages of notable quotables, so make sure once you get done reading at the bottom of each page you click on the link to the next page. The very first one – called the “Slam Uncle Sam Award”, is most fitting:

Andrea Mitchell: “It is an iconic picture: American hostages, hands bound and blindfolded, being paraded outside the U.S. embassy in Tehran by their captors. But has one of those student radicals now become Iran’s newly elected President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?…Tonight, U.S. intelligence officials say that they will continue to study this, but may never have definitive proof of what the role was of Iran’s new president, Brian.”

Brian Williams: “Andrea, what would it all matter if proven true? Someone brought up today the first several U.S. Presidents were certainly revolutionaries and might have been called terrorists at the time by the British Crown, after all.”

Mitchell: “Indeed, Brian.”
