Your Buzz: Negative coverage for GOP candidates

This Week On #MediaBuzz

MARY KATHARINE HAM said journalists are "channeling the American people's frustration" with their aggressive talk on ISIS and President Obama's handling of terrorism. SUSAN FERRECHIO said they were reflecting "raw emotion." FRED FRANCIS said questions such as the CNN reporter's "why can't we take out the bastards" were designed to make the "highlight reel" and should have been more specific. GILLIAN TURNER said media coverage of terrorism fades "during the down times" between attacks, and that may be because it's "kind of a death and destruction subject." And National Enquirer Editor DYLAN HOWARD said Charlie Sheen initially denied being HIV-positive and threatened a $150-million lawsuit against the tabloid that exposed him.

Ask Howie

When there is an obvious damaging error in reporting by the "mainstream liberal media" we conservatists (sic) blindly blame it simply on "the media", soon to be forgotten. The media is made up of persons, and some author wrote that erroneous article and is personally responsible. When calling the error to the public's attention, why do we not routinely expose that author by name, not just the nameless media?
