  •  We've lost our "Journalists" (10+ / 0-)

    A journalist use to report a story based on facts, and research, not personal opinion.  Scoutusblog did just that.
    Reported on what happened, and put out good information.

    I watched a bit of CNN with Erin Burnett today.  and I got a queasy feeling from her questions.  They weren't framed in a way a journalist would ask, but rather set up exactly how Fox News would ask a question.  

    "Has President Obama made Iraq worse"  
    "How much worse will President Obama's favor-ability numbers get ?

    Why Hasn't President Obama caught Osama Bin Laden yet ?

     Has Bill Clinton made things worse for Hillary Clinton?

    It just goes on, and on, and on, and on with the "Anything to make the President look bad, kind of interviewing, and questions, rather than presenting "News" and "Facts"  

    That's the crap that seems to qualify for "press credentials" these days.  

    I am guessing Fox New's # 1 reporter is  on CNN and her nae is Erin Burnett.

    •  Journalists Have Done This At Times, Not At Others (0+ / 0-)

      from our earliest years the press has lied us into wars, defrauded the people financially, and thrown elections and trials.

      The free press concept is an agreement to found the fundamental basis of civilization on warlordism. Corporations owned and sponsored by corporations, fundamentally free of check, balance or quality controls on their core service.

      THere will come a time when that is viewed as total surrender to barbarism.
