Ten Examples of Journalistic Integrity

The media is often my favorite whipping boy, tool of corporate interests. But ironically, while this blog is neither mainstream nor an actual news source, I am by definition part of the media. So I think it is only fair that I post this video that gives ten examples of journalistic integrity, many (surprisingly) from sources that you might not expect me to applaud.

    Very interesting. Who was that little weasel arguing with Geraldo Rivera? He’s seriously creepy.

    Four of those clips were Fox News, which is at first glance impressive. But now I am curious about what hours do they get their largest viewership.

    The time stamps from the Fox clips were:

    ~2:40 PT/5:40 pm ET
    ~12 PT/3 pm ET
    ~5:45 PT/8:45 pm ET
    ~7:45 PT/10:45 pm ET

    Many of the other clips were similarly from middle of day hours.

    I’m just curious how much integrity can you ascribe to behavior conducted when few people are expected to be watching.

    That cretin you are referring to is a local radio celebrity/lawyer in Cincinnati, OH. He is a nut job and started being a Rush wanna-be when Rush started becoming popular. Of course, Cincinnati is the epi-center of stupidity and right-wing nut jobs.

    Oh, forgot to mention, his name is Bill Cunningham, likes to refer to himself as Willy. The Hussein fiasco was his 15 minutes of nationl fame and then he crawled back under his rock in Cincy.

    People need to wake up the fact that Glenn Beck is simply another opinion pushing charlatan who is a product of mormon cult theology that he mixes with parts of Catholicism and his personal core as a dry alcoholic. And for the record, he is a Mormon and not a Christian. The two are not the same as one is a cult and the other is a religion. This makes Glenn Beck one very twisted screwed up moron who sold his soul to the lowest common denominator of personal stupidity. The religion of Islam has more in common with Christianity than the mormon cult.

    The truth about Beck is that he a dry mormon alcoholic who never got the counseling required for alcoholics. Because he does not possess a single ounce of journalistic integrity, this makes him the perfect abortion poster child for Fox Network. Considering the fact that Beck’s personal views are extreme Marxist Libertarian, his form of patriotism is false and he is a person who has no real substance or depth.

    Glenn Beck consistently demonstrates all the unstable behaviors of a dry alcoholic which include grandiosity, judgmentalism, intolerance, impulsivity, ADD, indecisiveness and blindness to truth. In short, Beck, Limbaugh, O Reilly, Hannity, Palin, O Donnell, Coulter and others like them frequently pervert truth, history, facts, religion and the US Constitution when they open their big mouths. Beck is simply part of a national league of pseudo-conservative idiots who make big money by selling lies and half truths to impressionable fools that occupy the lowest levels of society. Basically…tea baggers and registered republicans who are condemned to repeat the mistakes of history.
