GLENN: Okay, I want to play a couple of things here for you. First of all, Robert Gibbs refusing to answer a question about an illegal job offer to Sestak?
GLENN: Yeah, Joe Sestak.
GLENN: Sestak. An illegal job offer from Sestak from the White House. Here it is.
ED HENRY: Yesterday Congressman Sestak was on CNN and said in fact that he was offered something. He wouldn't say more but he said he was offered a job. Would you deny that?
GIBBS: Ed, I don't have I wouldn't give you I don't have anything to add what Jake asked me or —
ED HENRY: So you can't rule out that a job was offered?
GIBBS: I don't have anything to add to what I said.
VOICE: Because the counsel's office, said on advice of counsel?
VOICE: Could you seek more information?
GIBBS: I don't have anything to add now.
VOICE: It sounds like you are saying you don't you have no interest in getting information.
GIBBS: I just refer you to what I said in March.
PAT: Wow, wow.
GLENN: So he is not saying anything.
PAT: And here's what Sestak said.
GLENN: Wait, wait, wait. So you know the reason why he is saying very little is this is illegal. If this happened, this is illegal. You can't do this.
PAT: You can't bribe somebody to get out of a race and that's what they were trying — they were trying to get him out of the race so that Arlen Specter wouldn't lose.
GLENN: Now, Sestak is a Democrat.
PAT: Uh huh.
GLENN: So I'm a little suspicious about this whole thing but he has, he has no reason to do this that I know. He has no reason to do this, to come out against the president saying, hey, look, this is what he does. And he stands by his charges.
VOICE: Yes or no, straightforward question. Were you offered a job and what was the job?
SESTAK: I was offered the job and I answered that.
VOICE: You said you wouldn't take the job? Was it the secretary of the Navy? Was it the secretary of the Navy job?
SESTAK: Anything that goes beyond that is others for others to talk.
PAT: Is for others to talk about.
GLENN: Why are you doing that?
PAT: I didn't do that. It was on the original, the original audio. Sorry.
GLENN: All right. So he's standing by it. He's standing by it. Where, where are the members of the press going after this?
STU: Well, I mean, you did just have one there.
PAT: Right. You have the White House press corps that is at least trying to get some answers out of Gibbs about it.
GLENN: Is anybody doing any other work on this?
PAT: Not that I've really seen, no.
GLENN: Not that I've seen.
PAT: Not that I've seen.
GLENN: It's one thing to stand up and say, hey, I'm asking questions which, by the way, is what I got in trouble for, asking questions. I'm just asking questions. Well, we not only asked questions, we did research. And we figured it out.
STU: You've got to think that they would have enough resources. You are talking about big guys here.
GLENN: I'm wondering, though, if they are doing it.
GLENN: Look, there is a problem with the truth. There is an absolute problem with the truth. There's nobody telling it. Very few. And those — I think there are a lot of members of the media that want to but for some reason or another are not. And whether that's, you know, get along to get along, you don't know what the future holds, am I on the right side, am I on the wrong side, what are the corporations saying. I mean, there's, there's something to be said when you don't, you don't think that them — that SEIU, Van Jones, Jim Wallis, and now a Weiner investigation.
STU: Weiner gate?
GLENN: Yeah, Weiner gate on my sponsors, you don't think that that's a message just meant for me, do you? That's a message meant for everybody in the press: Don't screw with us, don't screw with us. Remember what they said. Remember when they came out against Fox. They said we don't recommend that you treat them — we're not going to treat them like a legitimate news source and we recommend that you don't, either. Well, now, that didn't work. So instead of just coming out and saying it, you nudge people. That's what's happening. They are nudging people. They are trying to make a lesson out of me. You will be a pariah. We'll destroy you. So now, I don't know how many are weasels and are just lazy, don't get it, don't want to. I don't know how many want to and can't. I don't know how many are afraid. But it's time for some spine, guys. Time for some spine. Because it's only going to get worse from here.
PAT: Are you saying there might be more Weiner investigations? Is that possible?
GLENN: I don't know about a Weiner investigation.
PAT: Yeah. Because I mean, that's serious.
GLENN: I mean, this is going to sell for Weiner.
PAT: Yeah, it is.
STU: Yeah. If there is a Weiner, another Weiner investigation, it will be up on Weinerfacts.com, though, I can promise that.
PAT: So if Weiner goes after anybody else in the media, we'll even cover that?
STU: Well, I mean, it's a comprehensive Weiner source.
PAT: Okay. It's your one stop Weiner investigation source, Weinerfacts.com.
