Question ID: 757905
Cafferty portrays himself as an ombudsman of  sorts on
politics,history,culture pop and otherwise.Because he can be funny at
times, I have found myself very interested in the oft asked question
"what is he really like?

I'm not looking for a deep psychological study. I would be happy with
a serious,researched piece from a conteporary,news or media
periodical.If I weren't so lazy I THINK I could answer it myself. but
I'm sure you have heard that before.Preliminary impressions are that
he is a political,historical and cultural chamelion. He has worked for
a munber of mews media.

I hope the fee covers your time but if not let me know !    Eddie

Thank you for the question. I have provided a piece on Cafferty from
SFGate and a number of links to sites that provide biographical
information on him and his views. I hope this helps. I will be happy
to add to my response if it is lacking what you were looking for.


CNN's Cafferty Makes Art Out of Ire
SFGate 6/28/06

<<"I'm 63 years old, put four kids through college, survived two
marriages, paid an awful lot of taxes and I figure I'm as qualified as
the next person to take a look at the world around me and have some
opinions on what I see," he said. "They're not always right but
they're always heartfelt and they're always real."

"I think that's what viewers pick up," he said. "I'm not some
hair-sprayed, programmed anchorette who's wound up for an hour,
wheeled into the desk and sat there and the computer turns me on and
off and the script comes out like it's supposed to."


"I follow the news, I think about the stuff I'm going to talk about.
If you second-guess everything you do, you begin to sound like
everybody else, I suppose, and it becomes diluted and cautious and
measured the passion goes out and the emotion goes out," he said.


"I thought (anchor) Wolf Blitzer was going to eat his script when I
asked if Tom DeLay had been indicted yet, because he hadn't been,"
Cafferty recalled, adding: "If he hadn't been indicted he probably
should have and I hope he goes to prison and sits there for the rest
of his life. He's a jerk."


He considers himself an equal opportunity detractor, one not wedded to an ideology.

"I tend to be independent. I went from cheering George Bush on to
thinking he's one of the great failures to ever occupy the White
House," Cafferty said.>>
