Episode Summary

Richard Gere
Tonight, actor Richard Gere promotes his new movie The Hoax.

Jon begins the show with a look at the Charlie Rose interview of President Bush and his statement that we only see the bad news out of Iraq from the media. Next, a comprehensive look at the media coverage of the Virginia Tech Massacre. Topics include the media talking about itself and how good or bad they covered the story, gun control agendas being pushed into the fore, Fox News blaming liberals for trying to push their agenda, and finally the blame game. And who's to blame for the massacre? Video games? Hollywood? Television? And finally, Jon talks about Monica Goodling, once an aid to Attorney General Alberto Gonzalez, who's been granted immunity in order to testify before Congress about the fired U.S. attorneys. Goodling graduated from Regent University along with 150 other government lawyers in the Bush administration. Jon takes a good look at what's so special about this fourth tier school, which incidentally was founded by Pat Robertson and originally named after his television network.moreless
