The Jesse Ventura Tour: If You Missed Any Of It, You Missed A Lot

This past week former Minnesota Governor Jesse Ventura made the talk show rounds to promote his book “Don’t Start The Revolution Without Me” that was released in paperback this weeks. He spent the week appearing on shows like Hannity, The View, Fox and Friends and Larry King, he also made an appearrence on the Howard Stern Radio Show . If you missed any of the interviews this week you missed a lot, it was all very entertaining. 

Jesse is a very out spoken critic of the Bush Administration’s use of torture techniques like “water boarding” and believes that any type of torture is wrong. He feels America is better than that and doesn’t need to stoop the level of the terrorist.

Being I already posted earlier this week Jesse’s appearence on the Sean Hannity, I had to follow it up with these two:

Ventura on The View

MilitaryTimes.com article claiming poll respondents are "[w]ary about Obama" did not note poll was based on voluntary responses


Media Matters – In a December 29 MilitaryTimes.com article headlined “2008 Military Times poll: Wary about Obama,” staff writer Brendan McGarry reported: “When asked how they feel about President-elect Barack Obama as commander in chief, six out of 10 active-duty service members say they are uncertain or pessimistic, according to a Military Times survey.” McGarry further reported that “[t]he responses are not representative of the opinions of the military as a whole,” but he did not mention that according to a separate MilitaryTimes.com article, the poll was based on voluntary responses by subscribers to Army Times Publishing Co. newspapers rather than a random statistical sample of service members, and that therefore no margin of error can be calculated for the poll. A report on the poll on the January 2 edition of Fox News’ Fox & Friends also omitted this information, as did the Chicago Sun-Times’ website, which posted excerpts of McGarry’s article.
