37. None of these people are "journalists." They're not even "reporters."

They are commentators. Personalities. Advocates. They don't try to give us two sides of a story; they aren't suggesting that we can see things either way...that the Faux POV is "just as valid" as the MSNBC one. They are advocates for their own personal viewpoints. Chris Matthews is a Roman Catholic Old School Tip O'Neill-trained Social Justice type, Rachel Maddow is a left-leaning liberal Democrat, Ed is the Union guy.

Chelsea was hired knowing full well who her daddy was and what her politics are -- her "pull" is that she is the daughter of a former President...just like Jenna Bush, who also got hired for the same reason-- to do fluff pieces and pull in an audience of curious gawkers.
