    I actually just saw something pretty amazing.  On CNN Wolf Blitzer just (about 1:45 ET) interviewed Michele Bachmann about Obamacare, and he kept calling her out for being wrong and was actually pushing back quite hard about her lies.  It was quite a contentious interview.  I was very pleasantly surprised.

    Hopefully someone will get a copy of that and help circulate it.  If even someone who fluffs politicians as much as Wolf Blitzer is pushing back hard against you, there's a problem.

      somewhere in the vacuum that resides between the Wolfie's ears. He's working on his cred's with the easiest fruit on the vine.

        More consistently now he re-asks his questions when his guest sidesteps it with a non-answer.  He also more frequently calls out an answer for being wrong or gives a bit of pushback.  I think this started sometime last year.  Not sure if it was because CNN got a new boss, or because The Newsroom might have been shaming some news people.

        But today was a lot further than normal for him.  I bet Bachmann was not happy about it.
