Irony Alert: Greta Van Susteren Questions Juan Williams’ Credibility

In a recent appearance on Fox News, Juan Williams made an observation that most thinking people would regard as objectively true when he said that Sarah Palin “can’t stand on the intellectual stage with Obama.” Even most Republicans don’t think Palin has the qualifications to be president, and many are simply embarrassed by her frequent incoherent Facebookings and Tweets.

But Palin’s Fox News colleague, Greta Van Susteren, is not amongst them. In response to Williams’ comment Van Susteren took to her blog to question Williams’ journalistic credibility and to ask whether he had ever interviewed the Tea Hag, implying that if he had not his opinion is irrelevant. Says Van Susteren:

“Knowing the source of a journalist’s information helps you judge whether it is good information or just yak. […] Knowing if he interviewed (first hand knowledge) either and to what depth can help guide you as to whether you should credit his opinion or not.”

“Democrat” Greta Van Susteren may have outdone Sean Hannity for obsequiousness toward George W. Bush during her interview with him last night (11/12/10) on On The Record. Van Susteren was not as openly admiring and Bush never called her “my buddy,” but she actively went out of her way to make him look good. In their discussion about Iraq and the non-existent weapons of mass destruction, Van Susteren suggested that it was Powell who was responsible for “the world” believing Saddam Hussein had WMD’s.
