Activist Reporters


I notice all these former Democrat activists/staffers, etc., turned journalists — Tim Russert, Chris Matthews, George Stephanopolis, Jonathan Alter, et al — are regurgitating the Democrat talking points, for the most part. I’ve always been troubled by the movement of (known) political activists into the newsroom. The current debate over the NSA, and the steady mention of impeachment (including Russert on Sunday), underscores this, at least for me.
