Vieira To ‘Today:’ “I’m An Independent”

By Brian 

Meredith Vieira is “an outspoken critic of the war in Iraq,” and she “says she’s being unfairly labeled as a raving liberal by some right-wing bloggers,” Gail Shister reports.

Vieira says: “I’m an independent. I’m not a Democrat or a Republican. I’m not particularly interested in politics, truth be told. Every time you read the paper, somebody lies about something [about the war.] I’ve been vocal about it.

Every day there are new questions. I want to know why we are there, what the game plan is, what the discrepancies are between what we’re being told and what’s really going on. [Conservatives] can paint me as anything they want. I know what I am. I’m comfortable with the positions I’ve taken in my life.”
