Cry foul over CBS ‘News’

Rathergate is a confirmation that the powers that be at CBS “News” really think most Americans are stupid and can’t see through the political proselytizing coming from those high New York pulpits. “News” on CBS has long been an allegorical vehicle for the “message” of a very singular political viewpoint and not the objective reporting I learned about in college journalism so many years ago.

I believe we all must remain vigilant, objective listeners and shout “foul” as loudly as possible when someone with such trusted power uses it so deceptively against anyone so personally. Perhaps those powers that be at CBS News just need to get out more often and come to realize that all the fly-over people between New York and L.A. aren’t as gullible as they think even when they like CBS News’ brand of proselytizing.
