Tim Russert did two things which if a Fox reporter did he’d have been racked over the coals. First, your favorite bible verse?? (Now I’m no New Testament guru but were a bunch of those not verses at all?) Whatever happened to the”we don’t mix religion and politics” ? And isn’t this a “religious test” (not literally, I know)? Can you imagine if a Fox anchor had asked that– the howls from the liberal establishment that Fox thinks be only Bible readers should be president would have been loud. Second, I think he went way overboard on nagging Hillary about her husband. One or two questions seem fine but I think that was the most asked about topic. A Fox reporter could have been accused of being “sexist” or “improperly denigrating Hillary’s own accomplishments. ” In this case it was also a waste of time, taking time away from harder questions which could have been asked. (Is it too much to ask the Democrats to list all the taxes they are raising or what domestic spending programs they’d trim?) The one interesting question he asked –on what policies did you advise your husband — failed to elicit interesting information for lack of a follow up on specifics (e.g. the end of term pardons? welfare reform which she opposed?).
