How 'Bout This Trial..?
NBC's Washington bureau chief, Tim Russert, has hosted the show since December 8, 1991, under the full title Meet the Press with Tim Russert. The show expanded to 60 minutes in 1992. The final segment of the program (time permitting) is often devoted to a topical clip from the show's extensive archives.
Russert's sign-off is "That's all for today. We'll be back next week. If it's Sunday, it's Meet the Press." During football season, Russert, a native of Buffalo, New York and avid Buffalo Bills fan ,sometimes adds, "Go Bills!", and occasionally will ask panelists, "How 'bout those Sabres?" if the Buffalo hockey team is doing well. <wiki>
Russert: Mr. Christ, what do you say to accusations that you’re opposed to fighting a battle to bring about the end of all life on Earth because you’re an Anti-Semite?
Jesus: Well, first of all, I’d like to point out that I myself am Jewish—
Ann Coulter: Yeah! Just like George Soros. Another Jew who somehow figured out a way to avoid crucifixion.
Jesus: I WAS crucified! (DISPLAYS WOUNDS IN HANDS)
Michelle Malkin: Why don’t people ask him more specific questions about the nails in his hands and feet? There are legitimate questions about whether or not they were self-inflicted wounds.
Russert: What do you mean self-inflicted? Are you suggesting Mr. Christ crucified himself on purpose?
Michelle Malkin: Did you read the book by Barabbas and the Golgotha Veterans for Truth? Some of the thieves who were actually crucified have made allegations that these were self-inflicted wounds. <more>
