Christiane Amanpour and Professional Journalism

Christiane Amanpour of CNN, was interviewed by the Huffington Post today about her upcoming documentary, and couldn't restrain her disdain of bloggers, "And the truth of the matter is I do not believe, no matter how sophisticated the delivery platform, I don't there is a substitute or should there be a substitute for professional journalism, which comes with training, with experience, with credibility, with developing trust based on the accuracy of your record in the field."

Aside from her disdain for bloggers, I absolutely agree that there is no substitute for professional journalism; unfortunately Christiane Amanpour and her fellow professional journalist aren't employed in professional journalism. They are employed in the professional public relations for the Democratic Party and the extreme Left Wing ideology.

"The TRUTH of the matter is" that Christiane and the other so-called MSM journalist wouldn't know CREDIBILITY if it bit then in the ass!!
They have been going along the NEWS highway with the left turn signal on for years.....

That extreme left wing ideology sounds pretty scary. After 8 years of an extreme right wing ideology that has left our country in the worst shape since the 1930s we certainly don't need more extremes.

What is this evil left wing ideology?

People still watch TV News? How backward.

This is your problem dr lava, your brain has been reprogrammed to believe in the schizophrenic rantings of siliconed TV people who report the evil rantings of insane dead-tree people.

It's your misery, not mine.

dr lava, you poor dolt -

Your description of our being 'in the worst shape since the 1930s' make you sound like a hyperventilating 9-year old girl. Man up, Nancy.

As for question 'What is this evil left wing ideology?', well, your reading skills are pretty poor because the author never used the word 'evil.'

Extreme left-wing ideology involves a complicit press to whitewash the evils of 'their' guys in office. It involves unfairly taking advantage of a trusting public and lying to them through a 'trusted,' 'professional' press.

This would be the same press that excoriated Craig, but gave a pass to Barney Frank; a press that gave the soapbox to Murtha and Durbin, but was hardly interested when the Marines were found not-guilty. The same press that touted the deaths of US servicemen in war, but are not interested in the victory they earned.

A press that wet themselves over the 4K servicemen that died in Iraq, but were uninterested in the 70K murdered here in the US in the same time period.

Dolt.

Bruce Henry:

Maybe the press "excoriated Craig" and gave Barney a "pass" because Barney hasn't spent 20 years claiming to be the guardian of the Nation's sexual morality. Maybe the soapbox for Murtha and Durbin was provided by the TalkRadio echo chamber's howls of manufactured outrage.
Maybe you guys have been tricked. You've been told by Limbaugh and his pals for twenty years that "you can't trust the drive-by media," or whatever silly name he's calling the Press. Spotting an imaginary bias in such liberal bastions as the Weather Channel and ABC News made you feel smarter than everybody else. Consequently you've supported this President in whatever catastrophic folly he's engaged in for the last 8 years.
Guess what? It's not true. Everybody else really is smarter than you.

Amandour specializes in dripping condescension in her reporting. I dive for the remote whenever she comes on. If only Americans weren't so ill-educated and unsophisticated about wuld affehs.
