STOP putting liars on teevee!

Rudy Giuliani is a liar. He, like Kellyanne Conway and so many other Republican defenders of our corrupt president, does not inform the public. Instead, he misrepresents, obfuscates, and filibusters. He adds nothing to our understanding of how our government is operating. More importantly, acting as a liar is detrimental to our understanding and the pursuit of democracy.
Hey George (This Week with George Stephanopoulos) and Margaret (Face the Nation), you disappoint me! Today, you contributed to the corruption of our discourse.

1. I agree, why even talk to them?

Especially Kellyanne. I guess there might be something to stay with Rudy being the shit stain’s lawyer so stuff he says has legal standing?

2. Chris Cuomo on CNN is good at doing this and in teasers he insinuates they are disgusted with trump

Then they come on and appear to be trump apologists, and Chris isn't able to debate them well, so they take over his show and own him, while supporting Trumps escape from consequences.

3. I agree whats the point of Graham & Giuliani... we already know the BS they will say?

What they should be doing is getting the Collins, Ernst, Tillis, McSalleys on there to go on record about this shit. But I suppose they are in hiding at the moment.

4. Rudy is a shit-stirrer.

As is Stephen Miller.

Nobody can disrupt the facts and muddy the waters like Rudy Giuliani.

Networks do a disservice to the people by promoting individuals such as these. They have nothing to contribute.

Drama sells ads, pays salaries.

It's self perpetuating.

I changed the channel to Face the Nation...where I found Guiliani screaming Biden, Biden, Biden. Then I wrote this OP.

9. They should add horns and whistles for every lie

and a scoreboard with a cumulative total and the lies enumerated on the bottom on a scrolling bar - sort of like a sporting event.

12. I stopped watching Chuck Todd years ago

 

when he stated it wasn't his job to inform the public about the ACA, it was the president's responsibility.

13. Apart from cashing a paycheck...

...he really knows nothing about the profession of journalism.

On his colleagues and predecessor:



Media Millionaires

Journalism by and for the 0.01 Percent


Fairness & Accuracy In Media

EXCERPT...

The media business outstrips other industries in generously compensating its top executives (New York Times, 5/5/13), and those resources could of course be put to better use by hiring reporters. But that’s not the way the system works. And it’s not just the bosses getting rich. Indeed, many high-profile members of the media elite live a rather charmed life. The journalism business looks to be in a disastrous state—but the view from the top is just fine.

SNIP...

David Gregory

As host of NBC’s Meet the Press, David Gregory is paid to quiz politicians on the tough issues of the day. But he offers his own opinions on the show, too; he’s encouraged the Obama White House to propose “big spending cuts” in order to confuse Republicans (1/27/13; FAIR Blog, 1/29/13). He thinks the White House should have done more to have a “moment in the Rose Garden” with a few corporate CEOs (11/11/12; FAIR Blog, 11/13/12), and demanded to hear more from the White House about the “hard choices” Americans must make to get by with less (1/29/12). He worried about the problem of Occupy activists “demonizing Wall Street” (10/10/11). He expressed concern that the more people criticize big banks, “the closer you get to wiping out the shareholder completely”—a person “who is not just a fat cat” (2/22/09).

In that sense, Gregory is reflecting what passes for conventional wisdom in corporate media—but also among people in Gregory’s economic class. His salary is not disclosed, but his predecessor, Tim Russert, reportedly made more than $5 million a year (Washington Post, 5/23/04). As Politico reported (3/15/12), Gregory was seeking membership in the exclusive Chevy Chase Club, which requires an $80,000 “initiation fee.” Gregory was sponsored by a couple of Washington-area real estate moguls.

SNIP...

In 2013, Gregory made gossipy news in Washington after apparently becoming incensed about a parking situation near his home (Washington Post, 4/10/13). Visitors to the D.C. Design House, an architectural showcase to benefit the Children’s National Medical Center, were evidently clogging up the streets near Gregory’s home. According to one of the designers, Gregory came to the house to very loudly complain on the front lawn. Witnesses claimed that Gregory yelled something about knowing “all the politicians in town,” which the anchor denied.

CONTINUED with Links and professional profiles on the likes of Thomas Friedman, Fareed Zakariah, Chris Matthews, Bill O'Reilly...

In addition to their I-know-nothing act, Chuck and his fellow tv types are well compensated for the misinformation stream.
