Newsbusters' Tim Graham is upset that NPR hosted a guest who, according to Graham, "denounced Nelson Mandela."
While I was reading Graham's complaint, MSNBC was playing a clip of a CBS Radio interview with Dick Cheney.
The same Dick Cheney who, as a member of Congress, voted against a resolution calling for Nelson Mandela's release from prison. Running for Vice President in 2000, Cheney dismissed questions about the vote as "trivia," then insisted: "I don't have any problems at all with the vote I cast 20 years ago.''
I'm looking forward to Tim Graham's criticism of CBS Radio for hosting a guest who voted against freeing Nelson Mandela from prison.
