Too Much Exposure for “Reporters” and Too Little Journalism

By now you have seen and maybe even discussed some of the lame questions asked of President Obama during his press conference Tuesday night. Did you also notice that the reporters asking some of the lamest questions were reporters you see very frequently on TV?

Here’s my take on this. These “reporters” are given too much access to appear in front of TV cameras these days and as a result their egos have overtaken their desire to be good intrepid journalists. It’s not about the story and facts that they are able to ferret out, these days the “reporters” want to be the story. It’s not all about the news, it’s all about them.

I don’t know how good journalist are made, but we can all see how “reporters” can destroy themselves.

I did a post on the question by Chuck Todd about why the President isn't asking for more sacrifice from the American people. Obama answered the stupid question but that wasn't good enough for Todd. He and the rest of the media just don't seem to understand what millions of Americans have already been forced to sacrifice. They are all mostly idiots and it shows.

Genuine journalism has been dead for years. This whole blogging phenomenon is not going to help, because now every moron with an opinion and a misrepresentation of the facts can express himself.

I think some of these reporters are going out of their way to appear to NOT be part of the "liberal" media.

Case in point: Anderson Cooper, et al. Not real journalists at all!
