CNN experienced an unexpected win on Tuesday afternoon, when host Wolf Blitzer got in a heated discussion over a proposed stimulus plan with Speaker Of The House, Nancy Pelosi. The debate resulted in some rough exchanges that had supporters from both camps taking to social media to defend their person.
Things began taking a turn for the worst when Blitzer pressed on the $1.8 trillion dollar plan on the table from the White House while citing support from Pelosi’s party for it. The speaker then call Wolf an “apologist” for the other side and the back and forth never stopped from there with both fighting for the last word as the music played into commercial.
Pelosi stans complimented her for “serving” Blitzer with her responses. Those supporting the longtime CNN anchor commended him for pushing the speaker until he got a response, which never came.
The interview, while uncomfortable, gave a jolt to an often stagnant format of afternoon recap news shows. And the truth is that both participants will have a trophy to take back to their supporters for their strong stance during the segment.
As for actual progress in getting the deal done and delivering help to Americans? Well, little progress was made on that front.
