Joan repeatedly has claimed that everyone is fair game for her insults, yet she expects to be treated differently. Why? She has no class and no tact. I think if you dish it out, you have to be ready to take it.

not by a professional journalist who knows how to conduct an interview for the intended purpose.
It "appeared" that the intended purpose was to be antagonistic toward the guest.

I think that after 50 years in the business, she knows how to manipulate the press. She certainly got a lot of press out of this.

Actually, she regularly insults herself in her act. It's the Obamas and their worshipers who can't take a joke. Joan learned a good lesson the hard way. Among the liberal press, it's fine to insult people as a joke only if those being insulted or joked about are Republicans, people living below the Mason Dixon line, and Christians. If you make insulting jokes about Obama, the liberal press will viciously attack you no matter how much they liked you before.

This isn't an Obama issue. She insults EVERYONE she can get her fangs into.

This wasn't being insulting. She's been roasted by many comedians and she even roasted herself. This was an attack interview. Joan agreed to a promotion interview, a lighthearted interview to allow the celebrity to promote the release of the book. But she dared to crack a bad insulting joke at Mr. & Mrs. Obama so CNN felt they had to respond by going after her for daring insult their idols. You want to interview her about her statements, invite her for an interview for this purpose or catch her on the street and ask her. But don't invite her for one reason as an excuse to ambush her. She's been in the business for far too long to fall for such an obvious trick. She saw through it quickly and walked. She's made enemies with people who held far more power and influence over her career than CNN will today.

But CNN doesn't care about those others she insulted. They only care that she dared to insult the Obamas. That's what this is all about.

No, YOU only care that she insulted the Obamas. You're the only one making this an Obama issue.

No, she's an equal opportunity insulting comic. CNN didn't do this type of attack interview until after she insulted the Obamas.

Feel free to keep believing that if you want. She's been criticized in the past, she'll be criticized in the future. (With good reason) It has nothing to do with the Obamas.
