David Gregory, host of Meet The Press, has a blog.
Whether he actually writes it, or reads the comments, who knows, but I submitted this comment. It wasn’t published, and I haven’t heard from him. (Looking at his blog, I see in fact, there are “zero” comments. This friggin’ blog has 70. Hmm.)
Do you do anything but record and playback what people say? How about when they say things that are untrue, do you point that out?
Have you ever listened to or seen BBC political correspondents? How about the Daily Show?
Is it any wonder (and isn’t it sad) that people turn to what is ostensibly a comedy show for ‘hard’ news?
I have yet to see how you have differentiated yourself from a Dictaphone.
Hoping for more, truly.
Similarly, the New York Observer (they keep sending me copies even though I didn’t renew - thanks!), this week leads off with something I’ve written about before. “How George Stephanopoulos went from political hottie to morning TV hack”.
Below is an example of actual reporting, from John Oliver of the Daily Show.
