A quick walk-n-talk with Starting Point host Soledad O'Brien before going live at the CNN Grill at SXSW in Austin.
Not so sure that we should recommend that Soledad be fired! I disagreed (yesterday) with the way she handled her guest, Joel Pollack. I would agree that she is a great reporter and an interesting "news star" to watch. I did get up at 4 am (PST) to see her show this morning...just in case it was as EXCITING as yesterday's show. Alas, it wasn't, but that wasn't her fault, I believe. I just wished that CNN would STOP declaring that our economy is BACK on track – the numbers for today's jobs report were FLAT. I am still not convinced that our economy is doing so great! I live in California and I believe that our state's problems have a direct correlation to our Federal government's LACK of doing their job on immigration! If we don't DO something about OUR immigration problem, our lack of MADE IN THE USA problems or lack of JOBS – we are NOT doing what is right for our country and we will never get out of the 15 Trillion DEBT! JOBS=$ for taxes and CUTTING WASTEFUL spending in our Federal government will HELP reduce our HUGE deficit! THE NEWS MEDIA SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT THIS MORE! Stop talking about the POLITICIANS' Social agendas and bring the discussion BACK to our country's REAL problems!
love you Soledad, you're soooooooooooo cute!
Isn't O'brien so embarassed from her blatant display of bias in the Pollak piece yesterday that she's afraid to show her face masquerading as a journalist? Frankly, IMO, she ought to be fired for her utter lack of journalistic objectivity. What a putz!!
