    (my best Paul Newman).....great comment and spot on....as I spent 16 years in the business...I can atttest first hand that what you say is the truth...and that was just on the local level....I never made it to the national level....I just didn't kiss enough ass, or was lazy enough

      in Street Car Named Desire.  "Stellaaaaaaaa!"

      Somehow we all think journalists should be above average, more than what we demand out of other professions.  But truth is, they just aren't, and like most professions, only very few are excellent, a handful more are very good, a bucket full more are good enough.  I can live with that.  

      What pisses me off is news people who are being paid very well, and given a huge platform and who piss that away with lazy parroting of bite size memes that repeat themselves over and over again, despite the PLETHORA of evidence that the meme is wrong.

      There are many examples of this, like say, "both sides do it," over and over again, when that is simply not true when you look at the preponderance of evidence.  

      SIGH. The outrage can take you over if you let it. Good to let it go and get cozy with a good book in fresh sheets.  Which is what I'm going to do now.  Thank God for life's small joys.
