Why CNN is as Bad as FOX News

 

The day before yesterday on CNN, Wolf Blitzer interviewed Hillary Clinton about her recent comments regarding Iran and Israel. Blitzer is a former lobbyist for AIPAC, a conservative pro-Israel group. I don't even care what was said, but it against all journalistic prinicpals for him to act as a journalistic asking a presidential candidate about Israel and the Middle East without acknowledging his former job as a neocon lobbyist for the same country.

Wolf Blitzer is the most unwatchable, dullest, most humorless person on teevee.

Seriously, the guy should get a job as a lighthouse keeper. Just climbing those stairs would make him more interesting.

First we expect our politicians to tell the truth, and now we expect our talking beards to do the same?

I want to know when these ridiculously unAmerican demands will cease.

I think we can pretty much expect this kind of crap from now on. The field of journalism no longer exists except for the work of a small minority (Moyers, Krugman, etc). These people are merely entertainers, and most of them suck at entertaining.

Yeah, I agree about CNN is really going down the tubes. At it's best, we've got subdued journalists like Anderson Cooper (who always struck me as well-intentioned but totally overshadowed) and "infotainment" merchants like Larry King, and at its worse you've got people like Glenn Beck, Nancy Grace and Lou Dobbs. I don't think they have even one pundit with their own air time on CNN's channels that touts any sort of left-leaning viewpoint to counterbalance the huge bloc of right-wing nutjobs they put out there. I certainly can't name one (someone correct me if I'm wrong). It's really quite disgraceful.

Swinebread: Yes, just a bit...

Liberality: **sigh** Too true...

Spirula: Ha! Lighthouse keeper is too good for him!

Distributorcap: "Leslie?" His name is "Leslie?" Ha!

Randal Graves: Asking for the truth may be a bit much. Perhpas you are correct. It's TV, after all...

Dguzman: **sigh** If only there was more nudity during the weather girl sequence, I might not complain so much...

Chaos4700: Glenn Beck, Nancy Grace and Lou Dobbs are freakin' ridiculous parodies! It makes me sick.
