none of these news people should be able to call themselves journalists. they just read useless garbage. that should be the job description, i work for nbc news/cnn/fox/whatever and i read useless garbage.
I know, it's a little self righteous but he's spot on. At least free thinking adults aren't putting up with such inept reporting/journalism and their viewership is starting to drop off. Not sure if we can say the same thing about Fox News but I guess everybody already knows that's a bit of a lost cause.
That job description should be the disclaimer before every MSM Newscast...
"Welcome to CNN primetime, every day we strive to beat Fox News on the amount of useless garbage we can pack into a one hour show... Viewer discretion advised.
