NYT and CNN are cowering in the corner re the terrorist cartoons, but they gave NO CONSIDERATION OR THOUGHT about the horrible, despicable, disgusting, derogatory cartoons the liberal media printed about George W Bush and/or Secretary Condi Rice. It's always a double standard, ALWAYS. And... I agree with KT and Greg (in France); better to get it right than get it first.
Your description of how the media writes favorable stories for only SOME politicians sounds disturbingly like the mafia protection money system....and your excusing it by saying that journalists are human is lame. Doctors see people naked. If they act unprofessionally in those circumstances...do we just say..."they're human"?
Wouldn't it be fair to say that Bill Cosby is asking that his situation not be tried in the press?
If talking about the stolen Sony e-mails is so distasteful, why did you not have the same reaction to the material that Snowden published? It was stolen!
Cops are not perfect and unfortunately make mistakes while performing their duties of protecting our communities. Considering the astronomical number of incidents that they respond to every day they do a great job, however, they will never be perfect. Why doesn't the media act like real journalists and address the real issue about the frequency of confrontations between police and black males? ... This is the great white elephant in the room that NO ONE in the media wants to confront...
During the show today, which I watch faithfully, Mara Liasson said we have to look at the problem of white officers killing black males. What are the numbers? What are the facts? What are the situations? Her statement makes it sound like white police spend every day looking for black victims. If there is a case to be made, I want her to corroborate her statement with specifics.
Mr. Kurtz, I appreciate your show, and think you bring a great perspective to journalism -- with ONE exception: you take yourselves WAY too seriously. The Lacy/Uber story is a case in point. There is NO First Amendment issue here, you realize that, don't you? Because the First Amendment speaks of what the GOVERNMENT is prevented from doing, NOT private citizens...
Comments: Having listened to Krauthammer... he has said Obama may have committed an impeachable offense... but has consistently said to impeach him would be a trap conservatives should not step into... so the headline was deliberately misinformation... which is what we have learned to expect?
