Novak suspended by CNN

  I ran across this yesterday and forgot about it until now.  It sounds like everyone is ganging up on poor Mr Novak.  First his “Crossfire” segment is canned and now this.

Journalist Robert Novak, whose publication of a CIA officer’s name in a 2003 column has sparked a federal investigation, was suspended by CNN after he swore and walked off the set during a live telecast.

  The timing is a little suspicious as well:

Henry said Thursday that Novak had been told before the “Inside Politics” segment that he was going to be asked on air about the CIA case.

  Is it getting hot in there or is it just me? LOL

  It could be that he can dish it out, but just can’t take it.  We report- you decide… or something!

“Let me just finish, James, please,” Novak continued. “I know you hate to hear me, but you have to.”

Carville, addressing the camera, said: “He’s got to show these right wingers that he’s got a backbone, you know. It’s why The Wall Street Journal editorial page is watching you. Show ‘em that you’re tough.”

“Well, I think that’s bull——and I hate that,” Novak replied. “Just let it go.”

As moderator Henry stepped in to ask Carville a question, Novak walked off the set.

  My, my, temper…  Isn’t that the first rule in debate- don’t let emotion cloud your arguments?  hehe

  1. The timing is a little suspicious as well:

    The articles that I have seen indicate that Novak’s departure may have been about dodging questions from Ed Henry rather than having been insulted by Carville. Henry was apparently going to challenge Novak about having used Who’s Who to find that Plame was a CIA employee.

    On a lighter note, here is a clip of Jon Stewart receiving an early birthday gift. (If the link doesn’t work, it is near the bottom of this page of Crooks and Liars.
