CBS News maintains the highest journalistic standards in what it “chooses” to put on the air. Those standards are applied without fear or favor.
Dear CBS News:
By your statement above, it appears that you have forgotten the most important rule of ” News Reporting”, That is to report “ALL” the news without bias or opinion and to let the listener ( or reader ) decide. Your argument that there is not enough time ,to report all the news, is without merit as you clearly find time ( upwards of 20% nightly ) to report on such useless information as ” researchers list the proper use of a condom ” or “researchers say cow farts contribute to global warming ” ….
You should rename your show from ” CBS NEWS ” to ” CBS OPINION “, if , as you say , you maintain the highest journalistic standards.

Very interesting how Christy has had an unblemished career and this mess ” just so happens ” to surface in an election year..Creating the appearance of a major stain on the leading GOP candidate.Very Strange..I smell a RAT..I think there is A LOT more to this than meets the eye…

Matthew.. Listen to me carefully.. There are a number of decaffeinated brands out there that are just as good as the real thing.. really…Obama has proven beyond any doubt that that he is incapable of taking any responsibility for his actions. He is the little kid who creates all kinds of trouble and when he gets called on it runs and hides behind mamma’s skirt. He and his administration will forever be marked as the most corrupt in history

He reminds me of the little brat that always starts trouble, then runs and hides behind mommies skirt when the kids in the neighborhood confront him. He blames everyone else but himself for his own mistakes.
WHOOOH…and I thought my diaper smelled bad.. Hey brother.. get the boots quick !!!… ahhh man…somebody tell him to take a breath mint !!!! WHEW !!!

I’m surprised no one saw this… Read the original article.. then read the timeline starting at 1:48… see anything wrong ?? like somebody is playing the media.. looks like there’s a real dirtbag out there

” I was just thinking ” Please Chris don’t do that,You do not have the mental ability to do something so complex..Your ridiculous and stupid comments show clearly the you and your show have NO desire to report and discuss current events without BIAS , That is something sorely missing in the news industry today. Note to news industry in general.. Report the FACTS ONLY.. let the listener / reader decide..

A return to the Salem Witch Trials.
“And now Nineteen persons having been hang’d, and one prest to death, and Eight more condemned, in all Twenty and Eight, of which above a third part were Members of some of the Churches of N. England, and more than half of them of a good Conversation in general, and not one clear’d; about Fifty having confest themselves to be Witches, of which not one Executed; above an Hundred and Fifty in Prison, and Two Hundred more acccused; the Special Commision of Oyer and Terminer comes to a period,…”
Is history about to repeat itself??

ohhhh.. this is priceless !!! HELLO MEATHEAT!!! They call it SMOKELESS power for a reason!! YOU IDIOT!!!.. Anyone want a good laugh.. enlarge the photo and look at the white outline photoshop “Halo” around Obama.. Look at the photo closely and notice that EVERY part of the subject is in perfect focus.. I’m no expert but have you ever took an action shot where the ENTIRE subject is in perfect focus?? notice the hint of green along the top of barrel…Highlights on the shooter indicate the sun is behind the photographer but the highlight on the right bicep shows the sun is to the right of the shooter, which is it.. the sun can’t be in two places at once!!. With the picture enlarged to max look closely at the cloths or body for any sign of movement resulting from the recoil..you will not find any.. this is a VERY poor attempt to try to cover up an outright LIE..

ran out of room..
” The oath they never took” .. I think that is something that the news media in general should read again, because it is something that they have long since FORGOTTEN.
Shaker, Sam DID make a great statement, however, the words would sound very foreign
to today's media. Truth? Accuracy? Responsibility? ''You're kidding. Right?"

The Hon. Sam Ervin eloquently sums up for us the vital importance of legitimate journalism in his introduction to the (1973) Georgetown Law Journal’s Media and the First Amendment in a Free Society:
“It is no exaggeration to say that the first amendment contains the most important elements of individual freedom; the liberties of speech and press are the basis on which other freedoms stand.
“The framers of the Bill of Rights believed, in the first place, that a free flow of information and ideas was the best of all protections against the worst form of tyranny, that of the mind…
“To say that great freedom is conferred upon the press and broadcast media is to imply that great responsibility is likewise conferred. In order to understand that responsibility, one must return to the two main purposes of the first amendment–the creation of free thought and the stimulation of public discussion. “The heritage of a free society, then, requires of the publisher and broadcaster that they disseminate such information as will enable recipients to arrive at the truth and as will assist them in making decisions on issues confronting the country. The information must be accurate; it must be presented objectively and interpreted fairly; and it must, if an expression of editorial opinion, be answerable.”I sincerely wish the news business would once again recognize their obligation to their public and measure their performance by the standards they once enshrined–the oath they neve

The first thing she needs to do is learn how to count.. 54 people on the first photo and 47 on the second.. and there are several people in the second photo who are not in the first.. who is this idiot trying to fool…she lies’ even when the truth is right in front of her

looks to me like cold blooded murder.. Where is the threat when the guy is on the ground ?? Once the knife left the guys hand there is no longer a threat, therefor the cop shot an unarmed man.. Anyway you look at it..”Murder One”

What’s good for one is good for all… By wearing that yarmulke in school, (it is a religious display on school grounds,) he is breaking federal law..( No public display of a religious nature on school property ) If he is allowed to wear that then people should be allowed to post a prayer on school grounds..There has been a number of cases lately of schools being forced to remove a plaque or poster because the court decided that it violating the religious rights of certain people. Schools, cities and towns taken to court and being forced to take down Christmas scenes because it infringes on the religious rights of a few people..
See something wrong here??
It seems that the law is only in place for some people
There is a difference between the school administration/government endorsing any particular religion and a student upholding his/her belief system. That individual is not officially speaking for anyone but themselves. And they are not forcing anyone to adhere to that belief system.
The few telling the many what is or is not correct. When did this nation lose itself?

Is this idiot for real … Must be …… Yooooo Meathead !!! “Illegal” MEANS they aint suppose to be here !! It dont mean that they can be granted the rights that “WE” fought hard for ( oh,,, guess you forgot.. voting is a right, not a gift. It’s earned, not given ), And since they aint suppose to be here, and you don’t have a clue,,,,,,, pack them up and ship um “ALL” out of here… Oh yea.. one other thing ” YOU JOIN UM !! ” cause It appears you ” REALLY DON’T HAVE A CLUE !!!”

I guess it is “good news” because it proves beyond a doubt
that these people can’t even agree about something as simple as whether to or not
change a wet diaper.. They all think that it’s their sandbox, come election time they
will find out just how wrong they are
