Blue Sweater Vest Of The Day Award

Lorrie Goldstein. Two in a row for members of the Sun chain. How interesting.

He seems to be unclear on the concept of "journalism".

"We shouldn't have to cross-examine our leaders to get them to tell the simple truth and acknowledge the obvious"

Silly me. I thought that was the job of the Fourth Estate.

"Edmund Burke, looking up at the Press Gallery of the House of Commons, said, 'Yonder sits the Fourth Estate, and they are more important than them all.'"

Along with most of the media he seems to think that in the 21st century his job has devolved into reporting on elections like he is describing a horse race. If I want someone to do that, I will listen to Joe Carbury. He is better at it.Recommend this Post
