4. Was it just me or did Mr. Lamb appear ever so slightly tense by the
end of that segment?

5. Who *isn't* tense after listening to Amy?
I don't think I've ever heard one positive word issue from her mouth.

6. If you want positive watch Katie Curic lie to your face.
I love the woman and her REAL reporting. I am sick of cutesey news readers. Amy Goodman is a Journalist of the first order.

10. 1) Not Katie Couric
2) I'm not casting aspersions on Amy's reporting skills, I just find her unrelenting drumbeat of doom tiresome.
3) I prefer my reportage as objective and agenda-free as possible. Or if not agenda-free, at least agenda sub rosa. In this day and age, this usually means (for me) BBC and perhaps Reuters. I'll also read most of the major newspapers: NYT, LAT, WaPo and WSJ (news, not opinion).

11. You didnt answer my question though!
BBC reuters WashPo LAT WSJ, are news services you did not mention 1 single journalist or reporter in audio, video and/or print media.

In Fact I can say as a Washingpost subscriber for over 20 years, (no longer, I canceled it in 2000)that for the most part you are getting your information from the MSM.

I guess we will just have to agree to disagree on this one!

12. I've never been tense after listening to or watching her Democracy
Now program. I wasn't tense after watching her and her brother this morning either.
