Gibbs Blasts Cable News

WH Press Secretary Robert Gibbs blasted cable news and responded to Rick Santelli‘s outburst on CNBC about President Obama’s mortgage plan.

In response to a question from CBS’ Chip Reid:

“I also think that its tremendously important that for people who rant on cable television- to be responsible and understand what it is they’re talking about. I feel assured that Mr. Santelli doesn’t know what he’s talking about.”

And on cable news:

“If I hadn’t worked on the campaign but simply watch the cable news scorekeeping of the campaign- we lost virtually every day of the race…”

“If I would have just watched cable TV- I long would have crawled into a hole and given up this whole prospect of changing the country.”
