Will the Real Reporters Please Stand Up?

From The Raw Story:

    Vice President Dick Cheney, in Gulfport, Mississippi on a tour of the Katrina hurricane zone, was told to "go fuck yourself" twice on live television, RAW STORY has learned.

    During a discussion on hurricane relief efforts, an off camera protester shouts, "Go fuck yourself, Mr. Cheney. Go fuck yourself."

    The camera remains on Cheney while we hear scuffling in the background. Cheney continues speaking.

    CNN's reporter asks Cheney, "Are you getting a lot of that Mr. Vice President?"

    Cheney replies, "First time I've heard it., Must be a friend of John..., er, ah - never mind."

    Laughter ensues from the VP and reporters.

John who? John Kerry? John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt? If those reporters had any kind of moxi, they'd ask Cheney what the hell he's talking about instead of laughing! I think Cheney is in some kind of timewarp, man. This situation has nothing, absolutely nothing, to do with John Kerry or any other John.

To be serious, they should have been asking him things like, "So did you enjoy your vacation. Was it worth guaranteeing you a spot in hell, because you know while you were having a good 'ole time, thousands or Americans died? What, really, was so fun that you couldn't come and do your job?"

I criticize these reporters, but I must admit to being impressed with a good portion of the media lately. I've seen a lot of mainstream reporters just ripping into the Bush administration and FEMA. Did you see that press conference with White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan? Snap, man. Snap.

Also, it's the first time he's heard it because it's the first time he's left Bowser's Castle in months.
