Peter Jennings – Good Riddance!

Here’s an exchange between President Clinton and Peter Jennings From November of 2004 at the opening of the Clinton presidential library. A little something I found amusing.

JENNINGS (Discussing rankings by presidential historians]: They gave you a forty-first in terms of moral authority – after Nixon.

CLINTON: They’re wrong about that. You know why they’re wrong about it? They’re wrong about it.

JENNINGS: Why, sir?

CLINTON: Because we had $100 million spent against us in all these inspections. … In spite of it all, you don’t have any example where I ever lied to the American people about my job, where I have let the American people down. And I had more support from the world when I quit than when I started. And I will go to my grave being at peace about it. And I don’t really care about what they think.

JENNINGS: Oh, yes you do.

CLINTON: They have no idea …

JENNINGS: Excuse me, Mr. President. I can feel it across the room. You care very deeply.

CLINTON: No, no. I care. I care. You don’t want to go here, Peter. You don’t want to go here. Not after what your people did. And the way you – your network – what you did with Kenneth Starr. The way your people repeated every little sleazy thing he did. No one has any idea of what that’s like.


Peter Jennings was one of the media whores who stomped on Clinton and helped Bush sell us this war. So – screw you Peter, glad you’re gone!

I feel no desire to kick his corpse, but his eulogy would not be complete without pointing out what you just did. Why do people feel compelled to gloss over the harm someone did just because they’re now gone? Respect? They no longer exist and thus cannot be respected or insulted. In any case, I said good riddance to Peter Lemmings while he was still on the air, along with Dan Blather and especially Tom Brokejaw.
