Who Is Dotty Lynch?

Media Monitor - Who Is Dotty Lynch?

Well I'm sure all of you are on edge waiting to find out just who Dotty Lynch would be:

Speaking of political operatives, did you know that Dotty Lynch is a self-described liberal who worked as a pollster for Democratic candidates and liberal causes from 1972 until 1985? Did you know that in 1984, by her own admission, she was an "ardent feminist?" Did you know that in 1984, by her own admission, she was "very involved" in the successful effort to get a woman, Geraldine Ferraro, on the Democratic ticket?

But she is also:
Dotty Lynch, political editor of CBS News, thought she had the answer. Her column ran under the intriguing headline, "Rove-Gannon Connection?" That's a reference to top Bush White House aide Karl Rove.

Ironically, despite the Lynch offering,.....so-called Rove-Gannon connection consisted of Rove having once talked to GOPUSA, which owns Talon News, which employed Gannon. But there's more. Gannon had written stories for Talon News that were credited with playing a role in the defeat of former Democratic Senate leader Tom Daschle by John Thune. And Thune's campaign manager was "'an old political crony' of Rove's," Lynch revealed. If you're still having trouble understanding the connection between Gannon and Rove, join the crowd. There is none.

But CBS thought it was worthwhile to push this dubious link. The original headline over the Lynch piece was, "Karl Rove's Warning to GOP." It was changed to "Rove-Gannon Link?" because of the desire by the mainstream media to pump life into the Gannongate conspiracy theories circulating on the left-wing blogs. One of those bloggers was immediately out with the following headline: "CBS Speculates that Karl Rove was Jeff Gannon's contact inside the White Houseā€¦"

I can't believe the furor over this Gannon deal. I mean you've got Tim Russert (formerly worked for Democrat Senator), you've got George Stephanalpolis (former speech writer for Clinton) and too many other former employees of Democrat politicians working as "Journalists" or anchors. But no one questions their legitimacy. Wasn't it Susan Molari who was going to do a political show and the MSM went wild a few years ago. How could she do this because well, she would be a partison and why would she be a partison? Because she was a Republican! The Democrats need to get over this rash of baby screaming and grow up.
