  •  Their regular reporting is still pretty good. (11+ / 0-)

    Inskeep and the unholy trinity of Juan Williams, Mara Liasson and Cokie Roberts screw up a lot of airtime, but I still listen because so many of their reporters are so good.  

    Still, I email ME and the ombudsman pretty much daily to call bullshit on one story or another.  Last week really took the cake.  On one day, Inskeep was interviewing Gordon Brown, and basically spent the whole interview trying to get Brown to say that Obama just isn't up to the job, especially with the economy.  A day or two later, he spoke with Thomas Ricks (author of Fiasco) and spent the whole interview trying to get Ricks to say that Obama just isn't up to the job, especially with Iraq.  Add that to all of their reporting on CPAC, and it's quite hurl-worthy these days.  (BTW, anyone think they'll give the same degree of coverage to Netroots Nation?)

    If you've got time to comment here, you've got time to email a Letter to the Editor and counteract republican framing of issues. DO IT!
