Truthdig Weekly Video Roundup
Posted on Aug 4, 2006
Check out a collection of the best Truthdig-flavored video clips of the past week. Featuring: Hillary Clinton’s smack-down of Donald Rumsfeld; Jon Stewart on Mel Gibson media coverage; a head-banging Ted Stevens music video, and more…
That’s just nonsense. And we’ve got the proof—in the form of Rumsfeld’s own words.
It’s actually the statement/question that prompted Rumsfeld’s above response. Clinton raked Rumsfeld over the coals over his “failed” prosecution of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. She closed with a knockout punch: “Given your track record, Secretary Rumsfeld, why should we believe your assurances now?”
Rumsfeld was left sputtering.
“The Daily Show” host mocked the way supposedly serious TV news shows spliced clips of Gibson’s movies into their newscasts about the actor/director’s anti-Jewish tirade last weekend. The “Braveheart” bit is hilarious.
The newest music video of the techno remix of Sen. Ted Stevens’ infamous “series of tubes” speech about Net Neutrality. Brilliant visuals and head-bouncing music.
“Daily Show” correspondent Rob Courdry shines a biting satirical spotlight on the terrorist group Hamas’ summer camp in Gaza, where “Palestinian children gather in mosques for religious education and paramilitary training.” Apparently, for Gaza children with special needs, there’s also a religious education and paramilitary training fat camp.
After a reporter asked in an ABC News segment why politicians are happy to go and embarrass themselves on “The Colbert Report,” Stephen Colbert responded by playing a few clips of ABC morning shows, and asking why politicians would want to go on shows that highlight, for instance, monkeys playing Texas Hold ‘Em.
