Wolf Blitzer nails it.

Energizing report on how Wolf Blitzer really pressed TN Republican about her lies about attendance at town hall.

Supposed journalists had done their job like this in 2010, Obamacare would have been better. Had they done this type of journalism in 2016, there would be no Trump.

1. Do you suppose he's ready to stick his own neck out and start doing his job

for the first time in his long career?

Nah, me neither. Conservatives always think it's the other guy's job.

3. IMO, Trump himself stimulated reverse psychology when he went after CNN.

Now the network may HAVE TO become journalistically-inclined.

4. I was there. I'm one of her constituents and she is lying her ass off.

I'm sure she was shocked to see so many upset people in the reddest part of her district in the reddest county in TN

7. I knew Blitzer plays a journalist on TV

Who knew that somewhere deep down, there may be a real journalist in there.
