Soledad Fact-Checks A Congressman Live On The Air, Accidentally Ends Up In A 'Who's On First' Sketch

The White House is floating Susan Rice as a potential secretary of state. In a interview about Benghazi, their opponents thought it would be good to start vilifying her now, using Rep. Joe Heck as their cudgel. Soledad O'Brien seemed to be of the belief that Susan Rice should get a fair hearing. So she decided to ask actual questions rather than let pundits be pundits. It's quite enjoyable. If all journalists reacted like her on TV, Washington might actually get some stuff done.

You cannot currently send a star to J.L. because you have done so within the last week.

Thanks for wanting to Jason--the thought counts in my book too!

You simply cannot confuse a man like that with facts - his mind is made up and set in cement, no changes allowed. Sigh - but I'm glad Soledad got her shots in there. There needs to be much, much more of that from the media.

How long before CNN misplaces Soledad? It's what they do.

THAT was Effing HILARIOUS! No one can double-talk like a GOPer. Glad his feet were held to the fire.

Give the woman a fair and equitable hearing. Rice wasn't using anything the government itself wasn't already using.

That was amazing! Still laughing at the complete idiocy of Heck's double talk.

Wow! Boy do I feel sorry for the State this idiot represents. I thought you had to have some level of intelligence to be on an intelligence committee; guess not.

RR, it's looking similar to the criteria for some on the science committee...almost makes one wonder if Boehner appointed the 2010 freshman to committees they were least suited for hoping for the least damage...

By Hecke there isn't the slightest hint of intelligence.
