Your Buzz: Reporters too cozy with Obama?

This Week On #MediaBuzz

AMY HOLMES said Donald Trump and the media are "fremenies" but the press has to do a better job of examining his record. The media and Trump are "fueling each other," SUSAN FERRECHIO said. SIMON ROSENBERG nailed it by saying "politics is kind of boring a lot of the time" and Trump is not. FRANK LUNTZ, who interviewed Trump about John McCain, said "it's partially the media's fault" that The Donald is doing so well. MEGHAN McCAIN was offended by Trump's "personal" remarks about her dad and also hated her time at MSNBC ("wasn't the right fit"). DAVID ZURAWIK unloaded on Jon Stewart, saying he "is not an honest broker" and that while President Obama loves talking about the media, "most of his analysis is wrong."

Ask Howie

While it goes against the grain of pop culture, I have never found Stewart to be insightful or funny. Night in and night out, he panders to the same, worn out crowd who hates all things conservative. If he didn’t have 30 writers on staff, he would be about as funny as Dane Cook.
