John Walcott certainly has experience assembling teams. Before the VP debate, he assembled a team to analyze the face-off between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. Here is the team he assembled to cover the VP debate:
"William Douglas, Hannah Allam, Jonathan S. Landay, Renee Schoof, Warren P. Strobel, John Walcott, Nancy A. Youssef and the staff of the Anchorage Daily News"This amazing "team of investigators" for the VP debate found nine Palin misstatements -- but only one Biden misstatement. One. Other outlets found more Biden misstatements: Investors Business Daily found nine. The New York Post found six. Karl Rove found ten. Ace noted fourteen.
But Walcott's team? Just one. Embarassing.
You want more John Walcott embarassments? In 2007, Walcott predicted the US would not win in Iraq. I blogged about that moronic prediction-- and my email exchange with Walcott -- here.
Another Walcott embarassment? How about this: Walcott gave a speech this year and said journalists don't need to present both sides in political coverage. Awesome.
