  •  That Would Require Reporters. There Are Very Few (7+ / 0-)

    reporters working any more, especially in investigation, and definitely beyond our borders.

    Too expensive.

    We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"

      They got plenty of cash on hand.

      Now I am well known TYT fan, so I am going from memory, at the DNC and RNC covnentions they spent like 50 million to cover them.
      At the DNC one they rented a resturant, rennovated it, and got glassware and silverware sketched with CNN on it.
      I think Cenk "borrowed" one (too much inside info? :D  )

      Don't get me started on the Royal wedding last year.

      They got money for hollograms, magic walls, and you think those contributors aren't paid.

      And take that "few reporters working anymore" to any university with a journalism program, most journalists will work for crumbs.
      Just ask any huff post blogger who got 0.00 per blog.  (obviously their reporters are paid)

      And props to Huff Post, even before AOL they had the most beat reporters in DC, and ones that challenged the establishment (I heart Sam Stein, got a pic with him at NN09,  me grinning ear to ear, him a little ammused he had fans like that)
