Sunday Morning Show Quotes – 8.31.14

sunday-shows_304Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with Andrea Mitchell on comments made by President Obama in January that ISIS is ‘the JV team’ : “Well, I think it’s wrong too. I think it’s a major varsity team, if you want to use those kinds of monikers. But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness. I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.”

“And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure — a heavy equipment, heavy explosives, the ability to move quickly. I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened. So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous. And they’ll kill with abandon.” Read more

Chuck Todd Bids Farewell to ‘The Daily Rundown’

Even though network attention turned to remarks being made by British Prime Minister David Cameron during Chuck Todd‘s planned sign off of MSNBC’s “The Daily Rundown,” he got his chance in a video uploaded to the show site. In preparation of his last actual weekend for hopefully many years to come, Todd bid farewell in advance of taking over as moderator of NBC’s “Meet the Press” on September 7.

“Obviously I’ve got an opportunity of a lifetime for a political journalist. And no matter how much I love every part of ‘The Daily Rundown,’ the ‘Meet the Press’ opportunity is not one I could pass up,” he said. “‘Meet the Press’ is the gold standard of American political journalism, period. The longest running television show on the planet. To be just the 11th custodian of that chair, is easily going to be the greatest honor and privilege I’ll ever have in my professional life.”
