Feingold Dresses Down CNN’s Soledad O’Brien
Posted on Mar 14, 2006
The Wisconsin senator tells CNN host Soledad O’Brien that she has been intimidated by the RNC into believing that there exists a serious legal debate over the legality of the president’s spying program.
CNN’s Soledad O’Brien’s interview with Russ Feingold today would have made Kyra Philips proud. In a magnificent feat of bimbotude, O’Brien goes from claiming censure is a “kind of a slap on the wrist” to “something quite serious” in one minute flat. “The jury’s not back” on the program, she claimed, to which Feingold replied “the jury’s been dismantled”. Feingold brilliantly called her on her ignorance, telling her the RNC intimidated her, because that’s the only way someone would think there is a serious debate about the legality of the program (almost all legal scholars have declared that the program is blatantly illegal).
