    what disappoints me is there aren't journalists smart enough to avoid.

    But then, I haven't had much faith in journalists for at least 30 years.

      •  Can't say that I agree with all of your choices (0+ / 0-)

        Unfortunately.

        For starters, there's no way I could put Amy Goodman in that category, sorry. She's as much of a self-aggrandizer as any of the MSM journalists in my opinion.  But then, I've met her on several occasions.

        •  I have no idea what that means (0+ / 0-)

          How is she "self-aggrandizing" and how has that undermined her reporting? Are you saying that she sensationalizes, and if so, examples please?
