A liberal, NBC smugfest invaded CNN on Wednesday. Former Today co-host Meredith Vieira appeared with her husband, journalist Richard M. Cohen, on Piers Morgan. Cohen railed against Christian conservatives as the "American
equivalent of the Taliban." In another segment, CNBC regular Donny
Deutsch, who guest-hosted for Morgan, bashed "vicious bully" Rush
Deutsch began a discussion on Republican chances in 2012 by playing a clip of a new Planned Parenthood ad attacking the GOP. Cohen, a former producer for CBS and CNN, smeared, "...They remind me of sort of the American equivalent of the Taliban. You know, they want to drag women back to a different point in time."
His wife, a longtime anchor at NBC, didn't refute this attack. [MP3 audio here.]
Vieira dodged, trying not to respond to her husband's comments. She
allowed that "there are women who don't believe in Planned Parenthood"
and added, "But I walk a fine line because I am a journalist. I can't
really give my opinion."
Regarding a supposed anti-woman, prejudiced attitude amongst Republicans, Deutsch insisted, "The Republicans can not win with a 20 percent gender gap. They've gone from five to 20 percent down."
