Krauthammer: Issa's Wrong About Carney Being a 'Paid Liar' - He's 'Majorly Underpaid'

As NewsBusters reported Sunday, Congressman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) on CNN’s State of the Union called White House press secretary Jay Carney a “paid liar.”

On Fox News’s Special Report Monday, syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer took issue with Issa saying, “I’ve argued here for months that Carney is majorly underpaid, and I think that really is the problem” (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: I would agree. I think that Issa should not be making personal attacks or hurling epithets. Leave that to me, and to Steve [Hayes]. Mara [Liasson] I’m afraid won’t participate. But Steve and I will take care of it.

And I think he’s wrong about saying that Carney’s a paid liar. I’ve argued here for months that Carney is majorly underpaid, and I think that really is the problem.

MARA LIASSON, NPR: A poorly paid one.
