“Part of what happened to CNN is what happened to Hollywood. The news, like Hollywood, became trapped in creating and fawning over celebrities. Getting Anderson Cooper publicized became more important than breaking the big story.
When you have celebrity reporters telling you how they feel about being in Iraq instead of reporting on how our troops are doing you begin to lose perspective. With guns, instead of going to gun ranges, gun-owner’s homes, instead of interviewing women who’d stopped an attacker, and instead of really trying to understand the world such women live in and what they’re going through, they just tell us how they feel.
Katie Couric, Diane Sawyer, and the rest are stars, not reporters. They’re not hunting for the truth. They’re telling you what they think and what they think all comes from the cocktail parties on Manhattan’s Upper East Side and from conversations with other reporters.”
The only way it stops and the mainstream media regains control of the narrative and so can dumb-down people again by not reporting what doesn’t fit into the liberal narrative, would be by government fiat. A new Fairness Doctrine or something.”
In closing, Jim says, “A lot of my former colleagues have accused me of selling out. Really, that’s how they think. I tell them no, you sold out a long time ago. Now you’re such a shill you can’t even see it.”

When someone commenting on an issue like this makes it about political leanings all credibility is shot to hell.
This is why America will never be able to have a proper conversation about guns, the second you do it boils down to "dirty commie liberals" and "extremist right-wingers".
This is all noise, and while you're all deafened by the noise another kid is arming himself up to shoot up his school.

Yeah, he isn't advocating for it, just stating that in their "Current State" the only way they can come back being the shills that they are currently is with Government intervention like the "fairness doctrine" bull crap to get rid of the competition to their biased asses.

Some just think the Right has these talking heads because of their radio shows, etc. This shows both both sides have it. Both play divisive tactics with their opines.
