Screw PBS's pretense of objectivity. It's insulting to the intelligence of even an eight -year- old. Tim Russert is supposed to be known for his "tough" questioning. However, "tough" questions only go so far when you allow the likes of Ted Kennedy- by way of reply- to offer whichever wetbrained socialist hallucination has managed to knock the pink elephants and polka-dot tarantulas off his reeking liberal ass for a few minutes- then, refuse to follow up, or even challenage his lunacy in any way. The meek acceptance of incoherent, unresponsive answers scarcely qualifies as "hard-nosed journalism". What yesterday's "interview" amounted to was an opportunity for Kennedy to parrot- virtually uninterrupted- the moronic, repetitious Democrat party line. This was no freak occurrence. It's business as usual in artsy-fartsy land. That's the unrelenting arrogance of it. Screw PBS. Screw taxpayer funding for PBS. Let them adopt the call letters, DNC, and go to work for a living the way honest whores do.
