RUSH: So the ban’s been in place for well over a year, maybe longer than that. But something happened yesterday with Andrea Mitchell that we’re gonna lift the ban. Wisconsin Republican, Sean Duffy was a guest with Andrea Mitchell, and it starts this way. She said, “Why not sit down and negotiate over entitlement reform, which is something that you all have been demanding, and that Obama’s offered in his initial budget. I mean, you’re putting on the table a nonnegotiable demand,” meaning the defunding of Obamacare.
DUFFY: The media won’t even ask the question about why are you treating families different than big businesses. You need Jon Stewart on Comedy Central to ask Secretary Sebelius, “Hey, why won’t you treat these two equally?” and she can’t answer it. I mean, that’s how pathetic I think news reporting has become, when we won’t ask tough questions to the administration.
MITCHELL: Well, we’ve asked questions to both sides. That’s not fair.
DUFFY: Do you ask that question, Andrea? Ask the question.
MITCHELL: We have asked that question.
