Brit Hume: John Dean Has Been Getting Himself on TV By Saying that Something Is Worse than Watergate

‘Is a little surprising to me that our colleagues over at CNN have made him a contributor and have him on the air all the time’

RUSH EXCERPT:

HUME: “Yeah, of course it is. And, you know it, is a little surprising to me that our colleagues over at CNN have made him a contributor and have him on the air all the time. I mean, I suspect that I’m old enough to have been around during John Dean’s hay day as president Nixon’s White House counsel and cover-up planner seems to me a lot of people at CNN weren’t. He was able to reduce his sentence by testifying against his boss who anybody at the time would have considered a good guy and least of all experts on ethics.”
