Jack Abramoff on CNN: Why does US TV book bad guys?
Jack Abramoff, a former lobbyist imprisoned for his role in a wide-ranging Washington corruption scandal, has appeared as a pundit on CNN. Why have US television networks turned into comeback springboards for disgraced public figures?

On Thursday, Abramoff joined presenter Soledad O'Brien, New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza and others to analyse the recent US Supreme Court decision ratifying President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law.

Introducing Abramoff, O'Brien acknowledged he had spent more than three years in federal prison - then plugged his new book.

She questioned him about the impact of the healthcare decision on the lobbying profession and how lobbyists would seek to influence Congress on the matter. ...

I mentioned this organization before, Full Show: United States of ALEC (By the way I do see there's a transcript for the show, so you don't have to watch -- something you might want to do if you you're a fast reader. Now, I don't care for this organization any more than a national teacher union having state legislators introduce bills like robots (ah, and they do so often) without any thinking or input on their own part - what do they think they get elected for! to think.

I really don't know if the NRA is a part of ALEC, though I think it is, but apparently one of our state senators in a robotic fashion introduced one the NRA proposals to our Unicameral, (NRA's words not mine).

Read some of my earlier messages about lobbyists etc. on this thread, please.

What was part of a quotation in the Washington Spectator's article, "The Washington Spectator ... on the illegal fund-raising for Bill Clinton's re-election knows I am no fan of ..." is no longer in the essay by Bill Moyer's Culture of Corruption essay The essay is still worthy of thought, but is now one-sided by removing that material, and removes at least an appearance of even-handedness which is more common with the --liberal-- Mr. Moyers than it would be with perhaps any of the radical right radio commentators.

Yes, Clinton deserved to be impeached Bill Moyers on Impeachment, but not for the reasons that the House brought charges against him. He should have faced impeachment for acts like this,
Clinton Gave China Chips for Nuclear War
(Now see, I can quote a "real right," source. ) In any event Christians have to be on guard no matter what source they read and think about it. Oh, this should be of some help, Come, Let Us Reason.

I see its really time to put up at least one more post on this thread, but of course every candidate from President to Congress avoids this topic like the plague, Full Show: On Winner-Take-All Politics.

By the way, I'm not giving Bill Moyers a blanket endorsement on politics (and certainly not religion he's a liberal Baptist, which is in some ways worse than being a Unitarian ) But he usually does a good job (but not always on his political shows like the one he did above for what he puts in but not what he leaves out. Take for example, the segment, Bill Moyers Essay: Occupying a Cause. This movement started out with bringing the financial interests to heel. Now that part I really like and support, all the ragtag socialist and wild-eyed types that tagged along, I have no use for. Mr. Moyers, at least in this piece, conveniently ignored them.

San Jose John, if you saw some of my other comments about Jack Abramoff, or even the title of the YouTube, you'll note that, he isn't given the saintly position of a Rush Limbaugh. :-7 you should look at the YouTube since it is short.

No, Mike of NY, he isn't the propagandist as all conservative talk hosts seem to be. Does he have a liberal slant, most assuredly, as I have even pointed out in his excellent show, Full Show: United States of ALEC, there are no doubt liberal versions of this group for unions. Hey, I don't expect people to turn off their brains for Bill Moyers--though I would hope they would turn them on, for the conservative talkshow hosts.

Here is an article that has nothing to do a Bill Moyers at all, I found it somewhat ironical, and so, somewhat amusing--Full Show: United States of ALEC[/URL>]Google learns its Democratic political ties have its bounds. Too bad the Repub. politicians who rent themselves out to the highest bidder don't have bounds.

As soon as I saw Abramoff's name in the title I just knew Jim would be all over this article.

Mike, you and others sure have your hands full having to fact-check Jim all the time but you're doing a good job, as far as I can tell.

But Jim, conservative radio talk show hosts don't pretend to be anything but conservative, whereas liberals deny being liberal. Being impartial, contrary to liberalthink, does not mean pretending to see both sides with impartiality.

I thought Christian Republicans would be all over this, demanding honesty in Government and Business? Is it only political Independents such as myself who pay attention to verse 10 of, 1 Corinthians 6:9-10?

Strange it takes a liberal such as Bill Moyers, who much more impartial than these talk show hosts on conservative radio, point out the A Culture of Corruption and have Independents on his t.v. program such as, Mike Lofgren -- Independent. It is time not only pay attention to the "fun" sins of abortion and homosexuality, but also just old fashion corruption --note verse 10 at the above URL.

Ah, I thought there would be hundreds of responses telling what an insightful idea it was to have this as a poll question. I would have to answer in the affirmative to one U.S. Senator, and Republican at that I'm not sure if I did or didn't mention Mr Abramhoff by name or really touch on his ideas, which would be my fault for not phrasing my question more closely, but I got a response that at least somewhat touched on the question, and I will praise the Senator and especially his staff (I really doubt if any message that isn't from someone well-known and powerful would even make it to the Senator's desk, but then no sort of response would be given, if the Senator had a general policy not to respond to such questions. So, a slight warm fuzzy feeling aimed in his direction.

Ah, and I see Mr. Ryan is Mr. Romney's running mate. At least one positive thing from that, Paul Ryan: ‘I Agree’ We Need To Reinstate Glass-Steagall.

Anyway, it was interesting to get something of response to my question to the proposed solutions of Mr. Abramhoff, q.v., ‘Evil’ lobbyist Jack Abramoff talk US politics (short YouTube).

How many of have contacted your Congressmen on any topic and got a response? If your message indicated you support one of their positions it would probably be quickly. I have to say my --former-- Congressman had a long detailed reply to a position that I didn't hold to, something that I appreciated from him and his staff, even though neither person's position was changed.

Well I contacted both my U.S. Senators about lobbying, very non-partisan since one was a Republican and the other a Democrat, and not a word for either about this problem which Mr Abramhoff offered some suggestions in ‘Evil’ lobbyist Jack Abramoff talk US politics (short YouTube).

It would be interesting to have a poll on SA to find out how many of our Congressmen have answered members of this forum sent a reply to them on topics these Congressmen didn't agree with the questioner? I wonder if the percentage would be very high?

What a pity, that Christians don't pay attention to all what is said in the Bible that doesn't match their personal agenda!

1 Timothy 1
9 realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers
10 and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching,---NASB

I have sent emails to both my US Senators, about Mr. Abramhoff's suggestions, but looking around I should also ask them about, why,

Jennifer Liberto, CNN wrote:
With so much on their shoulders, regulators have been meeting regularly with bank lobbyists, many of whom are experts but also have an agenda to ease or roll back parts of Dodd-Frank.
excerpt from, Two-thirds of Dodd-Frank still not in place Probably not as well-written so it could easily be set into action, but still heading in the right direction, unless the lobbyists mess it up.

Jack Abramoff was a bad guy, one has to hope he has reformed. I do like the the fact that Australian t.v. service somewhat focused on the reforms that Mr. Abramhoff was pushing to make Congress less responsive to lobbyists. I really don't know if he has an ulterior motive or not for suggesting these reforms -- I just wouldn't trust the man, q.v., Jack Abramoff - Wikipedia but he at least focused on an area of American government that needs reformation. I'm also thinking more of mobile users so you might prefer this, Jack Abramoff - Wikipedia Mobile.

Perhaps we are too anxious to forgive and forget, politicians certainly are, but voters shouldn't be. I already wrote one my Senators about this problem, and of course I wonder if my message will get past his staff? He not being a Republican it might, apparently I should send like messages to the other Senator and my Congressman?

I saw an interesting interview with ‘Evil’ lobbyist Jack Abramoff talk US politics. This is short, 9-11 minutes long, it really tars both Republican and Democrats, though since the Republicans were in power (Ah, something to look forward to eh? ) You'll see more Republicans pictured.

Perhaps Mr. Abramhoff has some good ideas on political reform? Political reform is something that should be on the top of the list of things to be discussed by candidates, and what they are going to do about it? Naturally considering the source for the ideas, one has to look at the ideas themselves and perhaps there are other ideas that should be adopted?

Oh, since becoming a tablet owner, I know there are tablets out there, even the very expensive iPad that can't process flash material as the first URL is, so here is a second URL which is a YouTube version of the program, ‘Evil’ lobbyist Jack Abramoff talk US politics - YouTube.

Huh! I just mentioned this in another thread! The question is why does commercial t.v. does this. I would also add another person that isn't the political realm who got away with behavior which would have gotten other men kicked off the air in the past, Is David Letterman guilty of sexual harassment in extortion case?. Martha Stuart owes a lot to Letterman making her look like a poor mistreated millionaire sent to prison.

The continual moral spiral downward of American t.v., makes it something to avoid even when there are those rare instances there is something on worth watching.
