Because You Need to Know What Dick Cheney Thinks About Things

The torture advocate and former vice president will be on ABC News’ “This Week,” interviewed by Jonathan Karl, possibly the only ABC reporter to contribute to Cheney’s favorite magazine, the Weekly Standard. It’s sure to be a hard-hitting interview. Interestingly, ABC is allowing Jane Mayer of The New Yorker — for my money the best national security reporter in the business — on its post-interview panel. A shame she’s not actually interviewing Dick Cheney.

As a way to close the budget gap, I propose that we waterboard Dick Cheney on pay-per-view.

Wow. They're actually going to allow a real journalist on the same show as Cheney, just not at the same time. I wonder if she'll be allowed to point out the obvious lies, and if she'll be invited back on the show after should she do so?

Hopefully Karl can get up off the studio floor long enough to ask Dick what he thinks of the Chilcot inquiry.

I'm probably wong, but I always got the impression that the interview segment and the roundtable were taped at different times and the people in the roundtable had no idea what had been said in the interview.
What good would having Jane Mayer on to comment about what Cheney just said if they don't actually discuss what Cheney just said?
