4. But, you know, LIBERAL MEDIA!

Seriously! Washington Times, Fox and National Journal? How the hell do they get away with this shit? Can you imagine if CBS named a guy who worked for Mother Jones, The Nation and MSNBC to be in charge? The double standard continues to be effin' ridiculous.

6. My message to CBS News

You just hired Major Garrett, a major Right Wing mouthpiece, as your White House correspondent.

This is insulting to the great many moderate to Liberal patrons who watch your shows and read your media.

I and other Liberals consider this to indicate CBS News will be in the propaganda business for the next 4 years, and we know why: There has not been enough brainwashing of the good citizens of this nation by right wing zealots, as proven by the recent election, and so CBS News will do it's best to change that ...

For shame ..... We intend to make sure everybody understands where CBS resides in these matters - Right in the heart of the Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity bull$hit swamp ....

This will not be forgotten ....

Regards,
XXX XXXXX

8. I just did the link...

We stopped watching the pablum on ABC with Diane Sawyer (and her fuzzy lense)...can't take Brian Williams any more and have been watching Scott Pelley for about a year.

Guess we'll just be turning it off.

Shocking what an insult this is to those of us that just want neutral and honest reporting.

10. I agree

 

you on Major Garrett. He is a hack. It is about time Schieffer retire too. Make room for other people. They need more diversity so we can get different point of views.

12. Very Unreal

CBS was historically the standard for news.

Very sorry and a little alarmed to see their constant blending
with Fox. Only a matter of time that Rupee gets his mitts on
CBS too, I guess.

13. Got to hand it to CBS,

they just don't get it do they. But,what the hay,it's INFOTAINMENT. Faux couldn't get the White House for the 1%ers,so I guess CBS will make a run for it. BTW,didn't this Garret slug get slapped down by our Presidents first Whit House PRESS Secretary?

17. Schieffer is the one who needs to go

and replace him with Norah O'Donnell. The few times that I saw excerpts or listened to the audio rebroadcast on the local radio here overnight when she filled in for him, it was like day and night.
