Cook will heat up 'SNL'

Full story: Orlando Sentinel

The Saturday Night Live on Nov. 1 will be a really big show. It's the last episode before the election, and NBC has added a definite ratings draw: American Idol victor David Cook will be the musical guest.

Bravo! This is the kind of interview news stations used to do before they were bought off by George Soros and MoveOn. Kudos to Barbara

Interesting. When someone dares to go into "medias res", the Obama campaign does the following: cut and run.

Instead of answering justified questions, they complain and hide.

Is that "hope" and "change"? Running away? Complaining? Is that the shape of things to come?

What a pitiful performance by the Obama campaign.

I didn't see it on TV but it was captured on Hotair.com , where everyone can watch. Good for Barbara. I might start watching local news again.

Barbara West's unprofessionalism is glaring. Instead of asking compelling questions about the issues she resorts to innuendo and half-baked rumors. Barbara, take a tip from other venerable reporters who have the presence to not show their bias as they interview candidates. Seeking meaningful information helpful to voters should be your standard, not smearing political candidates you may disagree with.

Blondie must be watching too much Fox news and reading Drugde reports.

Bravo Ms. West! Someone finally asked Biden some real questions. Why didn't you stick to the scripted questions the campaign handed you? What was the $800K to Acorn for if not for get-out-the-vote activities? Either Biden has brain damage or he was flat out lying.

Half a billion spent and His brother still lives in that box.

West asked reasonable questions and is being bullied for it -- just like Joe the Plumber.

A campaign team (Obama/Biden) that viciously attacks an ordinary person doing his/her job -- is not the team we want running the country!

...wow, that is the very first time I've heard the media take on the democrats. I may not agree with all of the anchor's questions, they could have been phrased better and sharpened a bit, but that is the kind of questioning I have always expected. You see that kind of pointed questioning all the time on the BBC, for both sides. If they interview someone, you can bet they won't let the anyone get away with simply reciting talking point.
Bravo! Not a single republican would care how sharp your questions for republicans were as long as you used that same integrity to inform all your work.
Maybe if you did that all the time, you'd see that your subscription numbers would come back up. I know that I would be willing to pay again for a news source that was blind to partisanship.

Hillary-Puma Supporter for McCain

Finally, a true journalist that is courageous enough to ask Joe Biden tough questions. Ms. West is correct that Obama is tied to Acorn. Furthermore, Obama donated $800,000 to an Acorn affliated group for GOTV expenses. In addition, Acorn has supplied volunteers and workers to his last 3 political campaigns.

Obama true economic agenda emerged with the distributing the wealth statement. In effect, Obama will deliver a tax rebate or tax welfare check to the 40% of taxpayers that do not even pay income taxes.

I wish more journalists would start investigating Obama. Why are 20 reporters camped outside Joe the Plumber's house? I didn't know that he was running for office.

Kudos to West & this network!

SNL is boring. The only decent thing was the political satire. Then they ruined that by being too biased.

West better watch herself. The police, cild support agency, and the attorney general of the state may illegally use government computers to dig up stuff on her just like they did to Joe the Plumber in Ohio.

Barbara West is an idiot! While she's making 3 or 400 K a year tops, some triple digit millionaire bastard in NY is making ten times that a year -- and according to West, she would like that individual to pay the same amount of taxes as her -- West is a fool and she's only deepening the chasm between her (very middle class) and the power elite wealthy when she supports McCain.

The USA has the 4th largest discrepancy in wealth distribution in the world. The Republicon coalition of Fascist jinGOPigs and the wealthy are the only reason why the
Republicon Party even exists. 90% of those that vote Republicon vote against their own best interests, and as rabid Fascist jinGOPigs, they remain too stupid to realize this. Even today, Reagan/Bush/McCain economics has diminsihed the USA to a 3rd world country, while the Fascist jinGOPigs continue to vote for more of the same.

I read this article about Barbara West's interview with Joe Biden, then went to WFTV's web site to see if it was possible that this had actually happened.

What I found there was appalling. Not only was every single question or comment antagonistic and negative, but she used the interview to spread lies being propagated by right-wing zealots. Obama is neither a Marxist nor a socialist and I'm sure Ms. West knows that, but even after Joe Biden made it clear that it was a ridiculous idea she continued her questioning in the same vein of thought. It showed she wasn't interested in his answers - only in using the interview to spread these lies.

Our community deserves so much better than this type of propaganda-laden interview on one of our local stations. If we want this from our news we can watch one of the cable news stations that are slanted to either the left or right.

Channel 9 and Barbara West should be ashamed of themselves, and I hope everyone in our area who cares about getting objective news reporting will join me in switching the channel and looking elsewhere - because we know we won't find it at WFTV.

Let's all tax and regulate our way to prosperity!

What a joy.

Worked real well in Iceland and Europe. Opps they went bankrupt.

Seems the strongest country in the world today is the most capitalist country.
