As American Morning concluded today, co-anchor John Roberts took an eagle-eyed shot at SNL fact-checking colleague Wolf Blitzer. (Recently, the Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer did a much-mocked accuracy assessment of a Saturday Night Live skit spoofing President Obama.) The smiling sniper hit his mark with sweet and sure success.
After a “Spit It Out!” segment by Jeanne Moos (featuring a lady on Late Show with David Letterman who spat her gum out and mysterious drew it back into her mouth), John remarked, “Stupid human tricks.” Co-host Kiran Chetry asked, “You said it was what? Fishing line?” John replied, “I don’t know how they do that. [It] defies the laws of physics.” Kiran responded, “Alright, so, maybe, it is fishing line.”
Then John impishly asked, “You know what we should do?” Ingenuously, Kiran inquired, “Try it?” John devilishly declared, “We should get the Situation Room to do an investigation.” As John displayed a wicked grin, Kiran doubled over in laughter. Aptly, John added, “I’m going to hear about that!”
