    and he seemed totally out of his depth and flustered by this story.  I guess if he's not working off a script, he's useless.  He was virtually babbling at one point.  

    I think that I have had enough of you telling me how things will be. Today I choose a new way to go ... and it goes through you!

    •  Chris Matthews was worse (4+ / 0-)

      Earlier this afternoon, CNN was much better with the actual reporting of facts.  But, Blitzer wasn't talking for most of it.  Once many of the facts were known, there were hours and hours to fill on the 24 hour cable "news" channels and this is what you get.


    •  They always get so breathless when they cover (1+ / 0-)

      "breaking" stories. I once had to write AC about the breathless, urgent way he was talking. Blitzer does the same annoying, scaremongering thing.
