I think that this is actually kind of funny. It's true. The media will eat everything that you give them.

    Glad he said it, if only they'd learn from being exposed. Sometimes they are too lazy about what they are fed or offered, Not to mention scared to take risks, like political risks or that of issues of popularity.

    The press is largely unprofessional, undereducated, unprepared to deliver the truth, uninterested in the most important news/facts/conditions, and unreliable.
     -- David L. Rosenthal, Hollywood     
    That is only half of it. Half are lazy and the other half have an agenda to push. Truth and real information have become almost nonexistent in the media offered emotional diatribe.
     -- Mike, Norwalk     
    The press is owned and operated by rich liberals (wait a minute . . . isn't that an oxymoron?) I didn't think there was any such thing as rich liberals. HA! They are encouraged not to look too deeply into anything that goes against their liberal doctrine (their religion). Anyone who doesn't agree with them is now a rabble rouser and a terrorist. Doncha just love liberals?

    The press has always been left-of-center in my lifetime, but today, it is so far left it is a joke. Why has the idea of being a permanent ward of the state become so popular? What happened to American innovation, respectability, and honor? It has never been more clear to me that the US is being taken over from within, and the press has been bought out by the ruling class. We all agreed that the Nazis used propaganda to garner support from the people -- can we at least admit that this is happening in our own country now? Without the internet, truth would be relegated to 'conspiracy theory' (a phrase the press uses to denigrate those who would dare to expose the mountain of lies the press keeps under wraps.)

    Is this fellow stating that the media was to lazy to clarify the validity or legitimacy of the insubstantial or worthless messages given to them? If your information is worthless, are you not a lazy contributor, also?
