With Extreme, brainwashed Leftists such as David Gregory, of Meet the Depressed, there is no compromise. This man has demonstrated that he cannot take in a new idea that deviates from his narrow template of memorized dogma.
Rush Limbaugh has provided a good deal of live air time for conservatives to express the real issue behind the HHS mandate, which has nothing to do with access to birth control, and everything to do with attacking religious freedom of pro-life people.
Click above and read Newt repeatedly explaining that women have easy access to birth control now, and that the HHS mandate is for the sole purpose of forcing religious people to violate the ethical tenets of their faith. Witness the unresponsivness of Dick Gregory, and evaluate whether he could be trusted to present any issues reliably.
This is an issue for people of any faith, since your religion could be next, at such time when it is found to be inconvenient to the aims of the state.

Update: It’s always fun to see different takes on the media personalities and their modes of operation. The Anchoress has an idea that Gregory might be our man on the inside because he gave Newt his minutes of uninterrupted air time.
One of Pharmer’s more interesting radio interviews involved a host who asked the whole line of left-style questions on the pharmacist conscience issue, which is very much the same vein as this whole HHS mandate business. Pharmer did a similar thing as Newt did, and not for the first time. What added the interest is the call back from this man after the interview. His feelings were hurt by the way he had been addressed by yours truly. He said he was really on our side but was playing devil’s advocate. He had been addressed as the actual opposition.
This man seemed to feel that he had to interview as a leftie in order to have media credibility. Your Pharmer told him that he had been addressed in his assumed role, and he should view it as such.
Maybe these are our people on the “inside”. They do what it takes to stay in position. But maybe if they were not so desperate to be getting along on the inside, that “inside”, which carries so much garbage news, would no longer exist.
