Joe The Tool Mideast Tour Update

This guy is an epic moron.
JOE: The story here is people are being killed and the media’s slanting it and trying to make it Hamas is, uh, as far as, that Israel’s being bad. Do you believe Israel is bad?

REPORTER: Do I believe it?

JOE: Yeah, do you?!

REPORTER: I’m Israeli, so…

JOE: So answer the question!

REPORTER: No, I don’t think Israel is bad.

JOE: Do you think Israel has every right to protect itself?

REPORTER: Yeah.

[pause]

JOE: You do?!

REPORTER: Yeah.

JOE: Have you said that on air?

REPORTER: I’m just a reporter.

Way to take it to those reporters, Joe. Journalists, if they are professional, as expected to include their opinions and bias in every piece.

And please don't pay attention to what he said a couple of days ago.

JOE: They’re supposed to bring the news to you unbiased. They’re supposed to actually report it and then let you make your opinion.

ROGER L. SIMON: What do you think you can provide that a seasoned journalist can’t?

JOE: What I can provide are actual real questions and get real answers. I’m not talking manufactured answers, I’m not talking soundbites…And uh, not giving it any kind of slants. That’s how news is supposed to be reported. Somewhere along the line they forgot that. As opposed to a commentary from them.

Please, make it stop. Please.

That's because conservatives speak "fact" and liberals speak "opinion." Obviously.
