Well, last night Katie Couric may have lost me for good with her ten minute interview with Karen James - wife of the climber found dead on Mt. Hood. I think it was Turbo1 who predicted that she would turn the news into the Today show, and it looks like he may have been correct. When I saw that she has a background in hard journalism, I held out hope that she would be a serious journalist, but last night was a new low for the evening news. And CNN is on its way over a cliff. Between Nancy Grace and this new Beck idiot, much of their programming is nothing more than tabloid fluff. And of course Fox is garbage. NBC and ABC are in flux, and at this point I am starting to wonder if there will be any credible news source soon. PBS is still pretty good, but when Jim Lehrer leaves, I fear that too will end. I don't think Gwen Ifill cuts it. Her questions are often shallow or irrelevant, so even if she tries to continue the tradition of a high quality news show, I don't think she is up to the task. As for newspapers, I gave up on those long ago. A paper is only as good as the editor, and it seems that many editors don't know how to remain objective. With the internet being too wild as yet to provide reliable information, how will the news be filtered so that the average person knows what to believe?
