Congressman to CNN Anchor: You're Beautiful But You're Part of the Problem

Most Treasure Valley Cable ONE subscribers didn't get a chance to see it because CNN (along with a host of other Turner Broadcasting networks) have been yanked from the cable line-up, but a GOP Congressman ripped into a CNN anchor this morning, saying she was "part of the problem" in the current federal shutdown.

CNN Anchor Carol Costello was talking with Indiana GOP Rep. Todd Rokita this morning when this exchange took place:

COSTELLO: "I think most Americans would say fight that fight separate from the federal budget. Don’t partially shut down the government. Don’t make things worse fighting the same fight ... "

ROKITA: "But it is. We seem to go around in circles."

COSTELLO: "Right, we’re going in circles. Right—circles—that’s what you guys are doing."

ROKITA: "You’re part of the problem; the media is part of the problem as well."

COSTELLO: "Come on, that’s so easy. That’s so easy."

ROKITA: "Carol, you’re beautiful but you have to be honest as well."
