    think liberals are the only ones who pick and cshooe what they define as appropriate control and intervention? Both sides do that conservatives do the same thing with the patriot act and other security initiatives they call for low government envolvment but it's ok to wire tap and hold people for upwards of two weeks without representation and other basic rights neither side is without blame in this matter and both love to point the finger at the other

      253@nyraider91 Once again, a liberal gets it wrong! Republicans and Christians don't claim to have sueoripr family values or that they are perfect , they simply set high moral values as their GOAL. As EVERYONE knows, except maybe you, nobody is perfect, but some try harder. We see aiming for living a more values-oriented life as a better goal to set for ourselves than to hell with everyone else what offends them, I'll just do whatever I want , even though that's the easier liberal route.

        Yes it's mind blowing that pelope don't get upset when congress ignores unconstitutional terrorism by the US which causes revenge seeking terrorist to threaten the US. congress can add $30,000 per taxpayer (additional debt) give it to banksters give billions to countries that we're currently illegally bombing NOBODY GETS UPSET but post a pic of yourself in your underwear they're ready to boot you?

    I enjoyed this show until spitzer was on it! Is he "reliable?" Was he on there as an expert-prostitute-purchasing husband- because he is NOT a journalist- just a disgraced, disgusting politician!!! Nobody watches his show so you put him on someone else's show? Disgusting!!!!!!!!

      You would not get taxed again your family would get taxed on the money they are riveiceng. If someone has inheritance of a billion $ should they get taxed just like anyone else who gets money? That is like saying your employer gets taxed and now you are getting again on the money they were taxed on .. It makes since because super rich families avoid taxation on their money through inheritances..Generation after generation just riveiceng money and never having to pay tax on the estate

    I like Pelley and it is not necessary to make a big production out of a show, after all it is all about the show, not the caster. About your show (I like CNN), you don't seem to have a stand on anything. your show is boring – I still don't know what your show is about – a summary of the week's news?

    Not money but LOVE of money is the root of all evil. Overwhelming Evil exists today right in front of American faces, 24/7, but you wouldn’t know IT by listening to the broadcast news media. According to the people who control our publicly owned broadcast airwaves, the most important news they have to offer is about daily life of Sarah Palin and Anthony’s Weiner.

    GOD forbid we talk about the 50 MILLION Americans struggling below the poverty level OR do an investigative report on the Corporate Crime Wave that gripped this nation during Bush/Cheney… OR how the trust fund babies are holding back capital, jobs, stalling technology and keeping gas prices high just to make Obama/Biden and Democrats look bad… (ask Jimmy Carter about big money working against his Administration)
    NOTE: (notice only Red States such as South Carolina are getting new manufacturing plants)

    Ohhh Noooo, what Americans get is a steady stream of celebrity worship news and mind numbing commentary by the same silver spoon, pundits day after day. I tell you the truth _____ I’m actually STARVED for REAL NEWS. WE’VE GOT HUGE PROBLEMS TO SOLVE, right? Why are these traitors wasting our time?

    I guess it hurts so bad because I’m old enough to remember a time when News anchors didn’t salivate over the sex scandal stories or celebrity fluff reports. How this Anthony Weiner thing became news is exactly what’s wrong with this nation full of shameless hypocrites. Why is this news… because Andrew Breitbart says so??? COME ON! Breitbart is the Larry Craig of 2011 calling Anthony Weiner a “nasty naughty boy”, while blowing strangers in the men’s room. If history is any indicator, Karma will be very hard on Andrew Breitbart.

    Frankly, I don’t care what my leaders do in their free time as long as they do good on the job. I’m not in Anthony Weiner’s district but the man is one of a precious few in Congress that actually fights for my Progressive belief system.
    We’ve lost so many to the Breitbart already… Van Jones, Shirley Sherrod, ACORN… but I’m not going to lose my Weiner to these Conservative wackos and their low grade thought processes.

    We Progressives, Democrats and Liberals need to get together on this one. Not only do many on the Left NOT fight back but all of the sudden we got all these prudes on the Left who’ve been badmouthing Rep. Weiner. Hey, I’d like to know what they did to Ed Shultz while he was suspended. Did Comcast sent him to re-education camp or something? See jinnbad.blogspot.com for the WHOLE story.

      He is very awesome, I rbeememr seeing him on Morning Joe arguing for single payer health care, Joe Scarb's head about exploded. Actually, he was treating him very condescending and Anthony was all over him. I certainly wish he was my representative, you know who mine is .Peter Hoekstra, arghhhhh. What an idiot.
