News agencies reporting on themselves is not journalism
I have been watching an on going story regarding Allan Chernoffs mother on CNN. Chernoff is a "reporter" for CNN and his mother is an Auschwitz survivor. Though what happened to Allan Chernoffs mother at Auschwitz is horrific it is not journalism. Journalist are supposed to be objective and impartial in their reporting. Reporters reporting on themselves is nothing more than blatant self promotion and should be recognized as such. This sort of "news" has no place in any reputable news agency. CNN has proven itself time and time again not be a reliable news source.

3. Now there's a reasoned response
It just puts everything in perspective.

Personally I wish there would be a little bit more reporting on news personalities, and where their interests really lie. But I suspect the answers would just depress me.

2. After I showed a friend the shot of
"Experts agree: Bin Laden dead or alive," he responded with a picture of a CNN headline that said: "Columbia Tragedy: Shuttle was traveling at 18 times the speed of light"

5. Remember, whoever wrote that thing about 18xC got PAID to do it.
It kind of makes me look at my own job and want to vomit.
