Most Trusted Name in News and an Explanation of The Stupidity of America

Walter Cronkite was known as The Most Trusted Name in News. He will sorely be missed. He was a true journalist, in that he would report the news as it happened without any spin, without interjecting his own personal opinion. Most people did not know his political affiliations. Turns out he was liberal but kept that out of his job.

American media has lost the "objective" part of their job, they are a major disappointment.

To make the point for how serious a let down this is, Time Magazine conducted an online poll to see who would take Cronkite's place as The Most Trusted Name in News.

And the winner is : Jon Stewart

WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE! Do you not realize this is not a real news show?

I am SO embarrassed.

hi, this is your old friend tshirt-doctor.

i had this quote for you.

"America's health care system," said Walter Cronkite in 1993, "is neither healthy, caring, nor a system."

now, that's it, in a nutshell.

Hey Doc! It needs some tweaks, but not what Pelosi & Co. has in mind! Plus what liberals call caring and what conservatives call caring can be two different things.

"and that's the way it is..."

Plus what liberals call caring and what conservatives call caring and what libertarians call caring can be three different things.
