Go get 'em Tiger!



Biden today from his speech - which I still haven't seen, but is getting great reviews.

1. I haven't seen it either,
but it was mentioned all day on MSNBC, so he must have made an impact.

2. I don't think you ever see Joe on CNN.
I don't watch as much as I used to but I can't recall last time I saw Joe on CNN.

Man, that is a great shot of him!

3. I haven't watched CNN in a long, long time
Too many flashy gimmicks and annoying journalists. Wolf Blitzer's voice is like chalk on a blackboard for me. Maybe if they spent more of their money on actual journalism, instead of high-tech useless gimmicks, they might actually be considered a News Channel.

4. The only one I really like on that station is Fareed Zakaria.
David Gergen isn't bad & Cooper isn't horrible, but the rest are worthless. Rick Sanchez - I'd like to know in what journalist text book, does his show qualify as a "news" show?

Most of the people who call themselves journalists are nothing but 'newscasters.' And what they spew is often times not even news, but propaganda.

Have you seen that photo of Wolf on the Jeopardy Show with his shamefully low score? :rofl:

5. Hi -- who is Fareed Zakaria? I really like Anderson Cooper when
he's on location and telling the truth about what's going on. I don't watch him otherwise, though, since I'm usually tuned in to MSNBC.

Haven't seen the pic of Wolf but heard he really tanked.

6. Cooper is good when he's out in the field.
Zakaria has a Sunday morning show & is sometimes a guest on other CNN shows. I remember before the 2008 election, Cooper had a round table discussion with Zakaria & Gergen - just the three of them. It was fantastic!! There was no shouting or interrupting & the discussion had depth. I was really impressed. I wish they would do more like that.

7. I'll have to check him out. Just looked him up and here's what
it says on his site:

Esquire Magazine
has called him the most influential
foreign policy adviser
of his generation.

I've seen him, recognize the pic, but never really paid attention. I'll do so now. I haven't really seen or heard Gergen in ages, probably because he's on CNN. I'd better get with it! :hi:

9. Also he is a regular on The Daily Show
Educated, experienced, and well informed! What a concept.

11. The Daily Show is one thing I never watch. Just never remember during the
day, and Jim yells at me about 3 times a week to watch it online, but I never seem to do that, either. The clips I have seen are great!

12. Oh man, when Jon hits it out of the park, it's a thing of beauty!
He did a segment on Afghanistan several weeks ago right after the story about their mineral wealth. It was one of his all time greats. I'm gonna have to find it & watch it again. My only gripe about Jon is he's too soft when he interviews right wing guests.

My husband likes Colbert better. ;)

13. Even when my best friend just relays to me what Jon says I'm impressed. And
the clips I've seen are a thing of beauty, just as you say.

10. Wow, great accolade from Esquire!!
A DU link with a link to a Newsweek article written by Fareed. http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...


I hate that the cable package I have has Fox but not MSNBC. Really sucks.

:hi: Hope you're well!

8. Oh my, I remember that
Turns out he's as dumb as he looks and sounds. Unbelievable that he has such a valuable time slot. He has no talent or credibility. He isn't even pleasing to look at. Don't get it.

I like Jack Cafferty, but it is no longer worth it to sit through the clueless and uninspiring to listen to him.
