"When the video ended, Bashir asked Hardin for his reaction to Gen Dempsey's criticisms of the veterans group, and Hardin began replying with this very mild statement about Dempsey: "First of all, he serves President Obama right now, so it's not a surprising comment." Bashir immediately erupted in a ball of fiery rage, cutting Hardin off, refusing to let him speak, repeatedly demanding an apology for this grievous assault on the integrity of a military man, and then – when Hardin failed sufficiently to grovel for the crime of speaking ill of Gen Dempsey – Bashir kicked Hardin off the show by abruptly ending the interview."

No to appear extremely partisan, but I can see how he's justified. It's rude to downplay the word of a high commanding officer in the military just like that...on top of those other soldiers being rude to the president. Did he have to cut him off? Probably not, but his comment was offensive and irreverent.

You're really annoying.

I'm genuinely hurt by this comment.

I thought I made contributions to this site. :(

The problem is all he was able to get out was that he thought we shouldn't necessarily take the statement at face value. We can't know what his actual analysis of the statement was or if he was going to discredit the statement entirely because he got cut off.

So what? The whole point of journalism is to state categorical facts in a dispassionate and unbiased manner, not interrupt your own f*cking guest and demand he make an apology, then kick him off the air whenever his answer is unsatisfying. Bashir is welcomed to do that, but it just makes him look like a petulant @ss.

So 10 posts and 6 of them centered on whether Ike is partisan. Definitely my intention in creating this thread.

Tis a rare thread on DDO that does what the author intended it to do.

Common sense seems to be in short supply around here. Humpy Dumpty is affiliated with President Obama, which automatically means that he is using his uniform for politics. To state such an assertion about not playing partisan, while being partisan is hypocrisy and Christopher Hitchens' lookalike called him out appropriately on it.

I'm not good with names.
