Ummmm. I don't really see any challenges coming from anyone except maybe Kanye's mother on the "jackass" comment. Now, if the President was Bush...
Typical Republican response: "They're being unfair to us!"

Yeah, yeah. You're such a victim.

Strange. Members of Congress are rebuked for speaking the truth. Double standard.

Hey I wish Obama would have went on TV and shouted it. I would have given him a standing ovation.

I thought journalistic integrity would have prevented them for apologizing. Obviously not, being the shill that they are. It really is a shame that they are an utter propaganda machine and not a real new source.

journalistic integrity demands that they apologize - off the record comments being private is like rule #1 of journalism. it was an insignificant comment, but the principle is the same. people need to know that when they are speaking off the record to a journalist from abc, it will stay private.
