After talking to attorney Bob Bennett about his client Judith Miller, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer “switch[ed] gears dramatically” and asked a question about his brother Bill’s comments about aborting black babies. After the audio clip played, Wolf asked: “Have you discussed this issue with him?” And then, with my emph. added:
|Well, no, and, Wolf, let me say, I am rather disappointed at you for not telling me you would ask me about that. This was about Judy Miller, and I think that’s a courtesy you could have extended to me.|
|I didn’t know that at all, Wolf. In the past you’ve always been very straight with me. And I’m honest with you and I’m offended by that.
“It was awkward,” an e-mailer says, “particularly when Wolf ended by calling him a ‘good lawyer, a good brother and a good friend.’ Is he really a good lawyer after what seems like a Miller debacle?”
