Second Changes

The other night I watched for the first (and probably last) time CNN's Parker-Spitzer show, a rather pallied talk program starring the former Governor of New York/whoremiester Elliot Spitzer. They ran a segment on Steve Jobs' medical leave, asking Business Insider honcho Henry Blodgett to explain what this means to the tech markets. Its a generally harmless piece, but watch the screen in the first 30 seconds or so. As is usual on CNN, a few biographical factoids about the guest are displayed, including the fact that Mr. Blodgett is banned for life from being a stock trader, and that host Elliot Spitzer indicted him and extracted a $2 million fine for stock-jobbing. Yet there they were being as friendly as possible to each other. Is CNN running an on-air rehab clinic, or does America actually provide a second chance?

"Morning Sam." "Morning Ralph."

My opinion is that objective journalism is no longer a relevant part of American society.

The "owners" of mass media have their own hidden agendas and producers direct accordingly.

I've been censored more than once.
