Meet the Press - this Sunday's program - same ol', same ol'
I sent an email protesting the inclusion of NoNuts Novak as a member of the roundtable. If you get a chance, email the show and let them know what you think of Novak. Do you have a comment about "Meet the Press?" Send an email to: mtp@nbc.com


I wrote -

Gag, gag, gag. Robert "the lying, mudraking, hypocritical, scumball who outs CIA agents" Novak. You have GOT to be kidding!

As long as the main stream media continues to pretend that Novak is a serious journalist the American public is going to be tortured by this inane, silly little man. Get a clue NBC, rewrite your standards on who you will book for Meet the Press and send Nonuts Novak home to spew his vile to his own four walls. Enough - his 15 minutes of fame was up about 10 years ago.

Why not try a novel old approach - try finding non-partisan journalist to intelligently discuss a variety of subjects on MTP? I generally TiVo MTP each week so I won't miss a minute. Not this week - can't be bothered with partisan hacks and nonsense. Hopefully you guys will return to your former high standards before too much longer. Start covering the real news - election fraud, the lies about Social Security reform, prison torture, how it is going in Iraq, the dead and injured soldiers, the complete take over of the country by religious zealots (not unlike the Taliban) or even Kerik, Rumsfeld, the awarding of faux medals that negate the true honor to the deserving recipients. So much to cover - so few who are willing.

Thanks for the opportunity to vent.
