This Week On #MediaBuzz

Matt Lewis said some journalists are trying to make a name for themselves by getting arrested in Ferguson. Lauren Ashburn said young reporters no longer start out by covering the police beat, but Richard Fowler denied that the coverage tilted against the police. Greta Van Susteren said legal analysts are "insane" for rushing to judgment on the killing of Michael Brown based on little evidence. Photographer Scott Olson took his Ferguson arrest in stride, while another photographer, Abe Van Dyke, said he left town because he was disgusted by the media's conduct. And there was sympathy for Howie's view that news organizations have run too many images of the killing of James Foley and are playing into the hands of the ISIS terrorists.

Ask Howie

RE: Dr. Keith Ablow's comment on Michelle Obama's weight... Michelle Obama has been calling into question America's waistline for quite a while... pushing broad sweeping changes to the federal school lunch program... If she wants to lead the debate, to talk the talk, she also needs to walk the walk... The fact that the female members of Outnumbered want to wall off Michelle Obama from criticism, with married couple logic...i.e. "You did not say that" only means that they do not want to have a serious debate
