… Brent Bozell is Right [#Brian Williams scandal]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,February 15th,2015

.. NBC cannot really afford to bring back Williams as the anchor to NBC Nightly News ..

.. it is not the financial cost . The cost of Williams ‘ remaining contract is not all that much . It is the cost and the severe hit to the network ‘ s reputation ..

.. [h/t —]..

.. I have to wonder , though — do they really care …

… Replace David Gregory on ” Meet the DePressed ” …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 22nd,2013

.. it does not necessarily mean that you do it with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brezinski ..

.. Someone younger and who is a decently tough questioner would help . Check out the rosters at the other networks . They have plenty of good people on their payroll who know how to ask a tough question .

.. Also , try to get someone who is not a philiosophical bigot . None of the Mouseketeers on pMSNBC need not apply . Matin Savidge (on CNN) and Kelly O ‘ Donnell (on NBC) are a good place to start . They (and retired CNN reporter Bob Franken) all have a place common to them : They spent the earliest and best parts of their careers in broadcast journalism in Cleveland . Yes , Cleveland , Ohio .

.. No , it does not mean bringing in a conservative . A left – of – center moderate would help . Do Not forget that Tim Russert worked for Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Mario Cuomo before he was hired at NBC . Also , Russert went to college and law school here in Greater Cleveland [college at John Carroll University , law school at Cleveland – Marshall College of Law , just as it was becoming a part of Cleveland State University] .

.. Someone with some decent chops is helpful . Gregory stinks , is a bigot , and the Mice at pMSNBC are no good , save the Morning Crew .

.. Also , when you replace the host , change up the media commentators . They are just as bad . Do Not limit yourself to D.C. or N.Y.C. . Try L.A. , Boston , or the Heartland …also , talk radio , bloggers , and others …

… Meet the DePressed is Really Bad …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. I knew it had slid downhill , but not this far .

.. I caught the audio for it on Sunday from another room when I was watching my favourite N.F.L. team (yea , the Browns)

lose another game . I did not pay attention to it that much , but yes , I did hear enough of it .

.. Yeech !! David Gregory is a terrible host , and an even worse questioner . He does not push his guests at all , whether they be newsmakers or the media . Tim Russert has to be turning over and over in his grave , watching this from up on high with the Big Guy .

… Watch her get Cooked on Meet the DePressed , of all things [yes , on ObamaCrapCare] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 19th,2013

.. these days , Meet the Press [Meet the DePressed] is largely a lost cause .

Tim Russert

.. Why ? David Gregory .

.. He is an empty suit for a reporter if there is ever one . He generally is clueless as to tough questions . Forget about anyone of a conservative bent getting a fair hearing with Gregory . If NBC Snooze were not such a sad sack (principally due to lack of talent , the rest due to the loons at pMSNBC) , the higher ups at the network would be able to find someone with a fair bit of talent . Tim Russert has to be turning over in his grave at the state of his old show . Even Garrick Utley did a top flight job , next to Gregory .

.. That is what makes this interview so surprising ([link] here ) . Nancy Pelosi signed on to appear on the show , and probably figured that she was going to get the ususal fluff questions that most liberals get . You would be wrong , for once .

.. ObamaCrapCare
