RUSH: We're gonna go to Columbia, South Carolina. Hi, Irene, you're first. Big responsibility being first caller on Open Line Friday. Hi.
CALLER: (chuckling) Hi, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: Very well. Thank you.
CALLER: Glad that I could get through. I so agree with what you've been saying on your whole monologue that you started. I just wanted to add to that. I'm so frustrated, Rush, I can't even see straight. I scan all the news agencies on the websites to see what's going on, just to compare, and I caught the video of Soledad O'Brien from CNN with the Breitbart fellow, the representative. And it was absurd. The lack of journalistic integrity was so unprecedented on her behalf that it just made me sick.
RUSH: This is the confrontation where she makes it very obvious and apparent that she doesn't think that this Obama video -- and his possible tie to this radical professor, Derrick Bell -- is even a story, right?
CALLER: Yes, that's correct. That's the one. Not only that, but she goes out of her way to present this man as an esteemed Harvard professor, which just as a side note if you caught Andrea Mitchell with Ben... Ben... What was the last name? I don't remember. She did the same thing on their show.
RUSH: Look, Irene, that's what Soledad O'Brien really thinks. There's nothing you're going to be able to tell her.
RUSH: That's what she thinks. Any professor at Harvard is "distinguished" by definition. All you have to do is be there and you're distinguished. All you have to do is be at Harvard or Yale, Princeton, and you are "distinguished." There's no changing her mind on that. Those guys in the video made the right observation. (paraphrased exchange) You know, she's saying, "I don't know what you guys are doing. I don't see any big news here. I don't see where the blockbuster." And they said, "That's the blockbuster! The blockbuster is that you don't see anything here that is of any note. The blockbuster is you're not interested in finding out who Barack Obama is, and that's the only point we're trying to make. And thank you, Ms. O'Brien, for making it for us."
That's what happened.
