8:00 am
tuesday in moscow and i hope nothing terrible will happen. and i'll be waiting to see whether putin will do something dramatic in ukraine. >> we'll leave it there. thanks for joining us. i'll see you tomorrow on fox business. "buzz beater," the cpac cop vepgs has led to a lot of media bashing. >> they can keep it. i don't subscribe. >> days of the media you will kag the k5u8ing the shots are over. how many people think it's a good idea to have 23 debates in front of people like chris matthews? >> does that appeal work while candidates are also trying to get favorable coverage. and should journalists believe donald trump when he says this time, this time he'll probably run for president? look at the media's gotcha questions for candidates like scott walker, even some anchors
8:01 am
admitting they get a much harder time than the democrats. obama insider says the president felt worn out by the whole cable thing. and defending obama's sunshining at fox. >> i wouldn't necessarily sing aloud news organizations that way. fox news at least some elements of it have come to represent the voice of the right on cable tv. >> i've got some questions for david plus the will i be tearlibertarian known as kennedy. >> i've always been kind of a misfit and that's where i'm more comfortable. it wouldn't be authentic or right for me to adopt a convenient set of beliefs from either side. >> i'm howard kurtz and this is "#mediabuzz".
8:02 am
more journalistsen ever before and this year's conservative gathering. and i asked reporters how cpac became such a media mecca. >> is the presence of all these media people the cameras bloggers writers, magnify the importance of cpac? >> that's the irony. yes, of course, a lot of cameras and reporters making any guys smi magnifies their impact, but at the same time they spend a lot of time attacking us. >> is it a big political story or is it a big political story within the media bubble? >> i think it's within the media bubble and within the base. that's the fairer statement. >> whenever you have a lot of activists, you get a lot of bloggers and cameras. that in turn attracts more bloggers and activists. >> media have to show up, as well? >> >> we want to hear what they have to say and talk to everybody without going to anchorage to find out what they think.
8:03 am
>> joining us >> joining us now, mary katherine ham, author of end of discussion. ron fourieer and kristen powers. no shortage no shortage of animosity toward the mainstream immediate yap. how much is well deserved? >> it is part of the primary process that these guys want to say i'm the guy who dislikes the media as afternoons you do. but some of it is just honesty in dealing with the actual media you're dealing with. and to me a candidate has to be realistic about the hostility he's going to face in questioning as we've seen for scott walker especially and that that matters. >> what struck me, kirsten it wasn't just a seerries but a broad bush as if everyone is biased against every single republican.
8:04 am
>> well i don't think that's that far off actually. i think that there is a real bias that we've seen against republicans in the media and i think it's gotten worse. i don't think it's been a constant, i think there has been especially with a lot of these new liberal outlets, bloggers that have a lot of through. they're under a lot of attack. that said, it's not like they get a pass from the conservative media. that's the difference. so even l.if you talk about the debates ss fox news were the toughest for republicans. so the idea that they will not have accountability i think isn't correct. >> i was trying to make a distinction between for example kale pundits and newspaper reporters. and you noted the irony that the same candidates who were beaten up on the media are trying to get favorable coverage from journalists. >> sure. >> sure. but first of all, we deserve it
8:05 am
especially when we're in an event like this when conservative activists and candidates want us to just tow their line and we don't. same thing happens when we get to net rooms. kristen is right. the folks who try to be in the middle, mainstream media, if you look at those group of reporter we do tend to could you toskew to the left. >> and it doesn't help when "the daily beast" had to retract a story picked up from the website jez bell accusing scott walker trying to cut funds in the state university system in wisconsin for sexual assault reporting and it turned out to be completely untrue. sean hannity was almost kind of a co-host at the cpac. most of the prognosticators say jeb did pretty well. it wasn't his crowd.
8:06 am
do you think mainstream media because they kind of like jeb bush grade him on a curve? >> i do think i felt more exceeded expectations stories from the reporters than i did in the room necessarily. not that he did badly. i think he did well. but there was more enthusiasm in the headlines. but i also think that to the point about not getting a pass he sat down with hannity and got asked some tough stuff and chris christie got asked tough stuff and which i think smart from both of them. >> laura was pretty aggressive with christie. >> and laura is not asking them questions about these stereotypes. and that's what happened with the jez sa bell story. but they believe that scott walker wants to tie women down and make them have babies. so it would make sense that he would want to not report sexual
8:07 am
assaults, right? and so i think that's the bias and kind of having these pre-ordained ideas about republicans because you're never around them. >> i'm also struck by how much the press which used to love chris christie is basically writing him off and we're almost two years out. >> he got no exceeding expectations stories. >> donald trump was at cpac and we'll get to what he said in a mochlts moment. but this is how long the donald has been flirts with moment. but this is how long the donald has been flirts with run we have a clip that goes we have a clip that goes back to 1999. roll it. roll >> everyone >> everyone who runs for public office has to be able to look in the camera and tell people why they should vote for him. >> i just look at you. i don't have to look at a camera. i'll look you right in the eyes and say i would be be a great president. i know how thing shoes run and this country has not run properly. >> so first trump tells the "washington post" he's more serious this time and he's hired political staff and then he says there's a 75% to 80% chance that
8:08 am
he's running. how seriously should the media take trump? >> he may be more serious, but he's not a serious man. if he runs for president, he won't be president. >> he has a long and flawless record of thinking that he's awesome. >> i think he puts on a good show, but he had not run the country. he's not a serious presidential candidate. p. >> we went through this four years ago where he hyped the possibility of running right up to the point where he renewed apprentice oig apprentice. >> i don't know why >> i don't know why he's taken seriously. it's a complete and ultimate thor mystery to me. >> one reason is because the media love to write about the did not ald because he's entertaining. he has the big personality. and he loves to get into it with the press on twitter. >> there is a confluence of -- >> we should stop talking about
8:09 am
him right now. >> i'll move on. before we leave cpac, so there was the straw poll about 3,000 voters rand paul won for the third straight year. scott walker finishing second. does that matter is? >> i don't think it matters a ton. the paul groups are well organized. i think the performance of scott walker means something, but we're very early out. >> i don't think if you look at the last time it was ron paul who won who didn't get the nom thags, but if you look it at the 2012 straw poll, it was mitt romney. so somewhat predictive. but i think this far out, it's not predictive. >> i'll just say as a political reporter, you have to take the long view and realize there are all kinds of flexion points.
8:10 am
very few of them actually matter long term but you can also dissterndis discern a little bit. and i agree it shows you scott walk ser aer is a candidate to watch. >> let's did it a once around on the big dhs showdown. they had to settle for a one week stopgap. and i think the media knowing full well there is a could ka bookie dance hyped this and everybody knew it would go a day or two and they wouldn't shut down. >> i think it was overhyped and i wonder if there is a point at which will doesn't pay off in ratings. the american people are like we do this this every three months. >> right. >> i could not disagree more. this is not about ratings and it's not even about who is going to win or lose and whether it shuts or doesn't. all they did is stepped itextend it
8:11 am
another week. our leaders are acting like little kids. it's an important thing about the dysfunction of washington. >> that is a story political dysfunction, absolutely. but i'm talking about here's what will happen at midnight friday in this doesn't happen. >> everybody lost in that. >> i think it's an important story. and i did notice how in the past we would be here until midnight waiting to see what would happen and thise it's like, okay, whatever. they're wearing us down with their extremely irresponsible behavior, but i think it does deserve coverage because you shouldn't be -- this is not how the government should be operating. >> certainly bears coverage. i just think the countdown clock is kind of silly. >> the game is given far more coverage than the dysfunction. >> we have a moment of consensus consensus. remember to send me a remember to send me a tweet during this h during this hour, do you think donald trump will run and should we take him seriously. we'll read the messages later.
8:12 am
or he you can e-mail us. ahead, we'll look at the rant that goat keith olbermann suspended get. but when we come back, some republican candidates say journalists hate hitting them with gchotcha questions. this is the equivalent of the sugar in one regular can of soda. and this is a soda a day for a year.

so,as my personal financial psychic, i'm sure you know what this meeting is about. yes, a raise. i'm letting you go. i knew that. you see, this is my amerivest managed... balances. no. portfolio. and if doesn't perform well for two consecutive gold. quarters. quarters...yup. then amerivest gives me back their advisory... stocks. fees. fees. fees for those quarters. yeah. so, i'm confident i'm in good hands. for all the confidence you need. td ameritrade. you got this. now with the xfinity tv go app, you can watch live tv anytime. it's never been easier with

8:16 am
republicans tend to get asked questions about outliers more than democrats are. >> ron fournier have come out of the closet and say you are admitted user of xwochgotcha questions. why? >> most questions i ask are >> most questions i ask are trying to elicit information or context, but there are times when i'm trying to test them. i learned this covering bill clinton. if i wanted to have him if i wanted to have him on his heels and have control of an interview, which is my job, if i want to test him, i'd ask the dumbest question. i think there are gotcha answers and i think there is gotcha coverage. we can talk about that. but there is nothing wrong with a goch satchach that that questions. >> are they not the ag nile
8:17 am
enough? >> part of the issue is they get asked these questions and then here is the big one, they're emblematic and they have to be asked of every other single republican. that almost never happens with democrats where the same question oh well he messed up and now we'll ask eight more, that doesn't happen on the left and that can be problematic as we saw with walker. >> it happened during the iraq war debate. not as much but it happened. >> the extent to which that giuliani thing got the blown out of proportion was crazy. but there is a different good not being agile and pushing back. i i think republican candidates need to be tough. sometimes turn it around on the press. walker has walker has not done it perfectly, but i think he's making a step in the direction to make this a pattern to point this out. >> do you agree that what i call these guilt by association questions, he said this what do you think, gets peppered -- gop side gets peppered with those
8:18 am
more? >> i don't k >> i don't know specifically. i think there is -- everybody has to denounce what somebody says. where bill maher says somebody and nobody denounce it is. i don't think the giuliani is a good example of that. i think scott walker should have been able to answer that question. when somebody says something that incendiary, i think that's a reasonable question to say like do you believe that? i mean to me that doesn't actually strike me as a gotcha question. >> i think we all agree standards should apply equally to both sides. don't we judge candidates by how they -- every professional says there is a time to make the point, pivot away. but walker just seemed to say i'm not playing this. >> if walker had said of course he loves his country but he's not running it, it would have been a better story.
8:19 am
i think he made it a gotcha question with his answer. we did go too far with the answer. the question was fair, the the question was fair, t he covered it wasn't. he said if i can take on 100,000 protesters, i can do the same across 9being aalaska cross theacross the world. he was comparing the challenge of fighting isis with the challenge of fighting unions. which was silly, but not comparing isis. >> and journalists know what he meant. maybe it was expressed poorly, but it gets blown up as you say. >> some literally said he was comparing isis with union members and that's no the question was fair the question was not. >> the issue for conservatives is well the president called terrorists and suicide bomb ertz and hostage takers and nobody gets asked if that is a
8:20 am
legitimate line. >> look, i think there is a double standard. no question. but i do think there is some things that are reasonable and if giuliani says this at a walker event. if there was no connection between the two of them, then i'd say that's a little -- i don't like all this everybody being forced to denounce. >> this part is a debate that will continue. thanks for stopping by. ahead, david axelrod on just how cozy he and obama got with the media. but up next, a look at the serious city surrounding bill o'reilly and keith olbermann. e... it's a full day for me, and i love it. but when i started having back pain my sister had to come help. i don't like asking for help. i took tylenol but i had to take six pills to get through the day. so my daughter brought over some aleve. it's just two pills, all day!
8:21 am
and now, i'm back! aleve. two pills. all day strong, all day long. and now introducing aleve pm for a better am.
8:22 am
oh yea, that's coming down let's get some rocks, man. health can change in a minute. so cvs health is changing healthcare. making it more accessible and affordable with walk-in medical care, no appointments needed and most insurance accepted. minuteclinic. another innovation from cvs health. because health is everything. i've lived my whole life here in fairbanks, alaska. i love the outdoors, spending time with my family. i have a family history of prostate cancer. i had the test done and that was when i got the news. my wife and i looked at treatment options. cancer treatment centers of america kept coming
8:23 am
up on the radar. so we flew to phoenix. greg progressed excellently. we proceeded to treat him with hormonal therapy, concurrent with intensity modulated radiation therapy to the prostate gland. go to to learn more about our integrative therapies and how they're specifically designed to keep you strong mentally, physically and spiritually throughout your treatment. i feel great today i'm healthy, i have never been in a happier place, i can't imagine being treated anyplace else. fighting cancer has given me opportunities to live. i think i chose extremely well. call or go to cancer treatment centers of america. care that never quits. appointments available now. keith olbermann sure has a knock for talking himself in to trouble. he got into a twitter spat with
8:24 am
students at penn state who raised money for cancer research. after the suspension, owner map said he was sorry. joining us now, marissa said he was sorry. joining us now, marissa guthrie. he has a history of picking fights. what do you make of this? >> well, look, he's admitted that it was stupid. and it's pretty hard to win that battle when these are students doing something so selfless as raising money for cancer research. and he knows that he was wrong. but espn hired him because he has strong opinion, he's very skilled at relaying them for anto an audience, so he will occasionally go over the line. they have a lot of people like
8:25 am
him in their stable and they get suspended, too. so i'm not surprised -- >> that's true. i thought he was putting some of the controversies behind him when he was with msnbc but did he apologize. let me ask you about bill o'reilly. we spent a lot of time on this last week when o'reilly called in for a couple segments. what is your take on how the flap has played out? >> i think there has been a real temptation obviously to compare this to the brian williams situation. there is a much different threshold for a news anchor and an opinion host. and where there is some question about the facts or the interpretation of the facts in bill o'reilly's case, brian williams and the network have come out and said he was wrong, what he did was wrong. they suspended him for six
8:26 am
months without pay and launched an investigation. so i think there is a different bar there. and bill has furiously debated his critics, invited them all on his show. and he's doing what he does best. he's doing he's doing battle. he's being -- he's lobbing grenades. so his audience loves to see that. >> well, fox news said in a statement that bill o'reilly has already addressed several claims leveled against him is this nothing more than an orchestrated campaign by far left advocates, mother jones and media matters and responding to the unproven accusation due jor oig has become an exercise in futility. but but a couple media sites have noted his ratings have gone up even when not talking about the controversy, 22% in total vul viewers. what do you make of that? what do you ma >> well, look, bill is at his best when he has an enemy to
8:27 am
battle against, to fight. and i think that he's legitimately rebutting these accusations and his audience is on his side and they want to see him do that. and it's actually really good tv and, you know, look if he feels that he's been maligned, he's got a big platform where he can go on and legitimately rebut all those charges. so i think -- >> he's made that point. so let me you've on to msnbc which everybody knows has a lot of ratings, friday was the last day for two shows one hosted by the son of mia farrow. let me play a little bit there the row in an farrow show. >> the great mysteries of the
8:28 am
universe. is there an after life? and lady sex stuff. is there an after life? and lady sex stuff. how does it work? >> what do you make of ronan getting a show and now the plug being pulled? >> well, i was a little perplexed when they gave him the show because even though he's kind of sassy and self he have facing, he has a big social media following, he's a very accomplished guy for someone so young,have facing, he has a big social media following, he's a very accomplished guy for someone so young, and he's been on as a guest and contributor. >> but not a journalist. >> exactly and no hosting experience. so i think it was a little crazy and probably unfair to him to throw him, you know, into the frying pan like that even though it was a daytime show and maybe the ratings expectations are not as high in daytime as they are in prime time. but i think that he obviously wasn't ready for that. it's hard to do television day in and day out and make it convincing. p.
8:29 am
>> it is hard. some people make it look easy. just a few seconds. what did you make of rchl ohis parting joke about his father? >> it sort of book endeded the whole experiment. when he started the show there was all this serious debate about who his father was. and so he ended his show with another sort of tongue in cheek reference to his father whoever that is. >> it's either woody allen or maybe frank sinatra. >> maybe. >> all right. maderissa guthrie, thanks very much. coming up, coming up, david axelrod on why president obama gets so upset with some pundits and cable chatter especially on fox. and later why does tv news give far nor attention to rudy giuliani 59 giuliani attacks the president than controversies involving hillary clinton and joe biden? image matters. i want some gray...but not too much. only touch of gray uses oxygen to gently blend away some gray but not all for that perfect salt and pepper look. satisfaction gua
8:30 am
much. just you and the look you want. just for men touch of gray

8:33 am
your fwooettweets are pouring in. donald trump is a political joke. davi david axelrod is now an msnbc commentator and we talked about the president and the press. almost every liberal xhen tore has expressed disappointment and frustration with barack obama's presidency. does does that bother you? >> no. part of what you need do when you're the president of the united states or when you work for the president of the united states is take a longer view. and it's very hard to judge a presidency in the moment. i think this presidency will stand up well. and i'm proud that he is a guy
8:34 am
in my experience who is not a perfect guy, i'm very clear about that in high bookmy book, but a guy who can look at the horizon and not get bogged down in the moment. >> you write >> you write at one point the president told you this local cable thing wears you out. i wouldn't think if you're president of the united states you'd worry that much about the whole cable thing. >> well, first of all that was three months in to his presidency, so i think everybodied a justseverybody ed a juts adjusts to the realities of the presidency. >> and you're now part of >> and you're now part of msnbc. when you mildly criticize the president, i feel like you're sort of holding back a bit, that you are in the words of your title a believer. >> i am. well the believer title of my book refers more than high relationship with more than one person. it has to do with my belief in the schl.ystem. >> how free do you feel to criticize the president?
8:35 am
>> i feel free to criticize him and you're right, it gets outside the tension because it's like a -- >> even axelrod said. >> yeah. >> so let's go to the book. 2008 campaign, you bring "new york times" columnist maureen dowd on the plane to talk to barack obama and in your words is he patronizing and disrespectful to her. he doesn't seem to like press people all that much. >> well, i've never quite seen anything like that. and he reminded me by the way, he only read the book after it was in print. and he reminded me that the thing that provoked him was that -- was a column that he felt was unfair to michelle. >> in that '08 campaign your candidate got what i will say is the easiest ride from the president of anybody in modern political history. hillary's people used to complain about it all the you concede that had's true,
8:36 am
right? >> i think we got pretty good treatment.that had's true, right? >> i >> i think we got pretty good treatment. but it's also true that when your campaign is going well when you're running a good campaign running a smart campaign, you tend to get better coverage than when you're not running a good campaign. >> sure. and one negative note in that campaign came with the remarks the videos of obama's former pastor reverend jeremiah wright. in the book you say those videos first began appearing with right wing sean hannity and then mainstream. are you saying the anti-american rantings weren't a legitimate story and were being pushed by fox? >> no they were clearly a legit legitimate story, but they were also boiled down of decades of sermons by reverend wright. so they didn't characterize the
8:37 am
whole of his life and statements. but i never suggested that it wasn't a story. >> to take swipe at fox new, doesn't that highlight the criticism? >> well, maybe. >> well, maybe.s at fox new, doesn't that highlight the criticism? >> well, maybe. >> well, maybe. i wouldn't necessarily single out news organizations that way. fox news you know has come at least some elements of it have come to represent the voice of the right on cable tv just as for some msnbc has represented the voice of left. and that's one of the features of our modern media. >> in the opinion program -- >> people have to sort themselves out ideologically. >> so 2008 campaign again, you shayla murray and richard wolffe
8:38 am
became my constant companions, you swore them to secrecy about a bad poll. doesn't that underscore the coziness of the press corps? >> they have written things that were challenging. i didn't monitor every word. but, look, one of the things about me is that it started off as a journalist. i understand what their jobs are. and when you're traveling with people day after day and you're having conversations with them about the events of the day, you you do develop relationships. i don't think that that impedes their professionalism or mine. and you've been around a long time. you've covered probabl you've covered probably campaigns. ca >> i've covered a lot of >> i've covered a lot campaigns. >> that is a >> that is a natural thing. again -- >> i was talking about there were some campaigns that get
8:39 am
along well with the press and shall do not. i was simply making that point. 2012 campaign, the disastrous first debate you write that msnbc's lawrence o'donnell pulled you aside and said you might want to get on the air they're ripping your guy apart. msnbc the gogo-to network for the obama white house in. >> obviously not that night. i joked that i didn't immediate to watch tv to hear what chris was saying. it could be heard all around the globe. there was a sense particularly among some of the folks who are pinopinion broadcasters that he had let down in that debate. just as there was some criticism on fox about romney's performance in the last debate where there was a sense that he wasn't as challenging as he should have been on the part of
8:40 am
some on the right who were partisan in his favor. >> david axelrod thanks very much for joining us. >> thanks for having me. and you can see the entire unedited interview on our home page buzz. and our facebook page. give us alike there. next she's an outspoken libertarian, my conversation with mtv star turned fox host kennedy.

lisa kennedy montgomery, better known as kennedy, is not your typical cable news host having come to the game after hosting a late night alter naf it rock program on mtv. i sat down with her in new york. kennedy, welcome. >> thank you so much. >> what's with the what name are you that fame us some. >> no, i had too many names. they had to pare it down. >> you've been devotedquoted as saying yelling at people is boring tv. >> every once in a while you have to tweak the paradigms. it's fun to have conversations with people you totally disagree with. and actually -- >> and not get interrupted when you're trying to make a point? >> i try not to, but sometimes i can't help it. so that's sometime i really try to work on. but my senior producer will get

8:46 am
debating your libertarian views and to boil it down want to kind of keep government out of our lives or less intrusive in our lives. >> i actually like to put it in a more positive acceptssense. i love freedom. i'm opt in mystic that we can pursue our individual freedoms in a way that benefits mystic that we can pursue our individual freedoms in a way that benefits everybody. and we can and we can party when we choose. >> are you pro-choice, pro gay marriage? >> >> i am pro gay marriage and ooifi'm a pro-life a pro-life libertarian. babies and babies and fetuses are sacred and i haven't seen a solid moral argument for abortion. i hope fewer people have abortions. i don't think it's i don't think it's my say to tell people when to make reproductive decisions necessarily, but i am still very much pro-life. >> are you not a big fan of
8:47 am
democrats, for example? >> i'm not a big fan of statism. i'm a political independent. and there are democrats believe it or not who are part of the liberty caucus on capitol hill who have ideas about limiting government. i don't like i don't like making the federal government bigger, i don't like making it more than intrusive. >> and some of it has happened in the republican administration. >> there is no doubt about it, >> there is no d which is why i'm an independent. it's hard to tell at this point which party want to the spend more money. >> since so much of the media debate and so much of the way cable news segments are booked is right and left democrat, republican strategist or consultants, are you a bit of a square peg/round hole? >> sometimes. but in my personal life and professionally, i've always been kind of a misfit. and that's where i've always been more comfortable. it wouldn't be authentic or right for me to adopt a convenient set of beliefs from
