Eventually CBS, NBC, ABC and CNN will wake up and understand that most people have already tuned out or are about to do so. The general public has witnessed the curtain being pulled back. Their own eyes have seen that there is not a great and almighty OZ providing television footage of actual events and news. Instead they recognize they are assaulted daily with foundation less, cheap acerbic Andy Rooney like sound bites.
Long ago the public recognized that like ALL other mainstream media outlets, CBS’s political agenda or 60 minutes & Dan Rathers’ venom saturated opinions were not news but propaganda that should be relegated to the politically correct universities where they can echo through the halls and perhaps whistle through the ears of some placard waving student wearing a Che Guevara T-shirt with out ever breezing across a single brain cell.
The far left of center commentary farted out of the mouths of Madison Avenue flesh mannequins is not news reporting.

Leslie Moonves, CBS chief executive, on Tuesday suggested that sexist attitudes were partly to blame for the faltering performance of Katie Couric, the news anchor he recruited to the network with a $15m annual pay package.
