    Finally! Kelley FINALLY gives an appropriate metaphor for his good buddies at Faux & Fiends.

    Took him long enough, but maybe he’s coming around.

    There hasn’t been a reliable piece of American television investigative journalism in over half a century. If you depend on t.v. for your information diet your intellect will most likely perish from starvation.

    It is the duty of our public democratic institutions to investigate and report to the people when laws are violated. Since all human endeavors are inherently flawed, investigative journalism, academic inquiry & individual vigilance are essential to our society.

    There’s a reason serious newspapers often do not turn a profit. They are not selling anything. Unpleasant truths and inconvenient facts are seldom profitable.

    Perhaps to balance out all the investigative work during the 2016 campaign of candidate Trump?

    The news, right and left both are saved by the word ‘alleged’. No one said it DID happen. It’s the viewers that rush to judgement.

    Yes Yes…. We know The News didn’t come to an investigative conclusion before they reported what they believed to be a crime.

    We need to accuse every victim of every crime of staging the event before we report on it.

    Hey, Kelley! How many hours of investigation before the Chicago P.D. uncovered the facts behind this hoax!

    [ Plus, perhaps you should remember that when you “tar” the ‘News,’ you also “tar” the newspaper you ‘work’ for! ]

    One shouldn’t defend irresponsible or unethical “journalism” simply because they are aligned with your views.

    The Smollett story was accurately reported by the media. Anyone could see that it was at least somewhat dubious. As investigation followed it turned out to be so dubious that he was charged with reporting a officious crime. The media reported that also. What more do you want, Mr. Kelley?

    Umm, uhhh, Steve? Wasn’t it journalists who uncovered the evidence and inconsistencies in the Smollett story?

    Ah, yes. The word “alleged”. You can have seventeen eyewitnesses and a CCTV, but it’s still “alleged”.

    They were just reporting what the police and the “victim” told them… Once they found out it was a lie they reported that … as did the cops… Only idiot at fault here is the liar. Lying and making up stories to get what he wants… Trump must be proud.

    Well, at least the folks from Covington are suing the media for their actions. I wonder how much the news outlets are going to settle for?

    Personally I’d love to see that one go to trial publicly and watch the editors, reporters, news directors, and owners get questioned. That would be some must see TV. It won’t happen, but it would be nice to watch.
