Wolf Blitzer tells Piers Morgan "I sort of believed" Anthony Weiner after the interview with him

Wolf Blitzer was a guest on "Piers Morgan Tonight" this evening, and talked about his interview last week in which, as we now know, Rep. Anthony Weiner lied throughout the conversation. "I'm saying to myself, it sounds to me like it may have been his picture that was out there, but somebody else hacked it, and somebody else sent it out to embarrass him," Blitzer told Piers Morgan. "I sort of believed that line."

Blitzer also compared the situation to the Bill Clinton scandal: "He came through. And his reputation is high right now."

    This is off topic but I'm really disappointed that Piers Morgan is having Ann Coulter on his program. Is CNN turning into Fox News? Right now I'm watching a love fest with Mitt Romney and praises for Sarah Palin. A few days ago it was about how wonderful Donald Trump is.

      They had Michael Moore and were kissing his butt. I doubt you'll see the same with Ann Coulter. Piers democratic campaign button will shining!

      I watch MSNBC most of the time now. I used to be a CNN junkie but not anymore with the exception of the weekend when I like to watch TJ Holmes, Fredricka, and Don Lemon. I love hard ball with Chris Matthews, Jenk Uyger, and Rachel Maddon...geez, hope I got the names right. They definitely do their fact checking. Love it!

    I expect more from "the dean". If you do something and don't want to get caught, lie to Wolfe first......

    ENOUGH of the the Anthony Wiener scandal, okay it is maybe worth 15 min of your show, but that is it. I tuned on to your segment to see your interview with Mitt Romney and I got 30 mins of Wiener instead of a full segment of Mitt ...I'm SO dissappointed with you and your judgement.

    I am so glad I stopped following you on Twitter. Liked you up until then. Now that I stopped following, don't even watch the show. Wish you success, and what's the loss of one follower.

    The Anthony Weiner scandal is interesting; not because it is of any import in itself but because it is so interesting to watch someone trying to lie his way out of a situation. In retrospect the lies seem so obvious that you wonder how you were so naive as to give him the benefit of the doubt.

    For the ultimate interviewer – tonight with Mitt Romney was a REAL disappointment! Could you let the man talk? Obviously NOT! Is this the same gentleman who interviewed Oprah? There were no interuptions there. You obviously have political issues – leave them to your dining table or living room – not the fabulous format you bring to the viewers. Let us get to know these people – and in the best of all words – after you ask the ? – shut the "H _ _ _" up & let your guest respond! You owe that to your guest AND your audience! . . and you did Mitt Romney wrong. I hope tomorrow night includes a well deserved apology. . . to Mitt and the audience truly interested in one of the most important elections EVER! He deserved better and so do we! (BTB you were far more tactful & a better listener with Guliani)

    Let have some an understanding about what happened in Rep. Weiner Anthony, Lying is not not a stigma to me think is a way of expression not to be mocked by enemies. Anthony Weiner is not the first Political or congressman who have been in the status. I think you guys in CNN, have some personal issue about this case.Yes the young might have dome mistake in the past but he has to repair it, how can he repair if your guys in the media will not stop and have another discussion. However, personally am not in support of his "dumped act". Yes he lied to wolf but you guys should move on . I STAND TO BE CORRECTED,I REST MY CASE

    The bell ringer was when Rep. Weiner refused to call for an FBI investigation into the hacking. Everybody knows or should know if a false complaint is filed with the FBI the person filing has broken the law and can be prosecuted. the Representative painted himself into a corner when he said it was a prank, this implied he knew who it was, and at the same time saying he was having a private investigation into the matter. If he already knew it was a prank and who, why the investigation? It was obvious he was trying to come up with a plausible answer to the calls for bringing in the the FBI so he would not be pushed into signing a false statement on top of everything else. Obviously Wolf wanted to believe or he would have realized the same thing this housewife in the Midwest did...the representative was obviously lying.

    Very disappointed that Piers Morgan spent most of his show talking about Rep. Anthony Weiner. I do not care about his antics, the guy is not worthy of my time and attention. He lied and cheated; the media is now making him into a news star. I tuned in to see a show with Mitt Romney. Instead, I got a show all about a idiot adult man texting stupid pictures of himself to women who were not his wife. This country has serious issues that need to be faced and discussed. I thought Piers Morgan as a news man would at least stay on topic since the show was promoted as one about an interview with Mitt Romney. Let the Star or some other news rag cover Rep. Anthony Weiner. Or let the issue die like the Rep.'s career and move on to important things like the unemployment rate, people underemployed, the housing market, our wars, the state of education in America, or the raising cost of basic necessities such as gasoline and groceries. I could go on about important news issues facing us, but I think we all get the point. Piers you promoted your show about one thing and filled it up talking about a liar and a cheat that is just a waste of me time.

    Why is it that we live in the world of Playboy culture where many women receive a career boost from taking their clothes off yet when a male politician does the same, it is dishonorable? Is it because he lied when he should have told the whole truth from the very first question?

      Politicians SHOULD be held to a higher standard. His lies and taking nude pics and sending them to followers on twitter calls his judgement into question.
