A CNN anchor just referred in a story to the “mae-yo-ist guerrillas” in “knee-paal.”
I don’t know if she can’t think when the teleprompter is running or just has no idea about anything in history or politics or geography in general, but in any case it doesn’t help the general public when this is the state of our news media.
Okay, let’s be honest. This is the first time she’s ever hear of either term. I can’t decide whether it’s better to have clueless, uneducated newspeople (CNN), blatantly fascist propagandists for newspeople (Fox), or bifold tabloid stars as newspeople (MSNBC).
We need to fund PBS enough to have a national nightly broadcast.
