Ron Fournier: Jay Carney Is Giving Me 'Baghdad Bob Flashbacks'

"When you get caught being incredible with the information you give to the public, that's a big thing that splashes over into other issues"

Friday's Morning Joe Program provided evidence the mainstream media is beginning to abandon the Administration at least about Benghazi.

Discussing Jay Carney's explanations of the email indicating the Administration politicized its initial Benghazi reports to help the President's reelection, National Journal's Ron Fournier commented that Carney was giving him "Baghdad Bob flashbacks":

Fournier: I agree with Mark. I don't think that's a small thing, I think when you get caught spinning like this, when you get caught being incredible with the information you give to the public, that's a big thing that splashes over into other issues. As someone who has admired Jay and worked with Jay and wants my White House to succeed, it was painful yesterday watching that briefing and get Baghdad Bob flashbacks.

Baghdad Bob is the nickname given to Mohammed Saeed al-Sahhaf an the Minster of Information under Saddam Hussein who, during the Iraq war, continued to claim the Iraqi troops were winning the war, even as the Americans were entering Baghdad.
