    Frank Luntz? Have you turned into FOX news now? This is the station of Walter Cronkite and 60 minutes. You are flushing your credibility as an unbiased news station down the toilet with this hire. You will have a very tough time getting it back. The flailing for audience share reeks of desperation.
    I must be getting old. I absolutely love actual news and analysis. Why are media stations hell-bent on getting to the scary world of Paddy Chayefsky in Network?

    It is scary because for many years the news felt it had a responsibility to report the news and keep our politics in check. Now you have taken the respected task of disseminating news, while expecting your audience to think, to the level of pablum that you spoon feed us to create a mind set that benefits the conglomerate's best interest.

    Shame on you for removing thinking from our political discourse and replacing it with a spin master from one political party.

    "If you build it, they will come." If you build a truly awesome news team with actual news gathering and source checking, you know, journalism, people will come back to CBS. If you are known for taking tough issues and actually dissecting them and letting the audience use their brains, people will watch just because we are desperate for some actual news.

    You may not think so, but the vast majority of Americans appreciate being treated like adults with brains.
