This book is a joke as is the term // broadcast journalist \\ as I'm always reminded of the idiot Dan Rather and his physical impression on the news show demonstrating how - - even though President Kennedy was supposed to have been shot in the front - - his head is thrown violently forward [he was obviously shot from the back originating from the Grassy Knoll area]! The problem is that so-called journalists and reporters are always so damnably uncurious, and even brag about how uncurious they are [I'm reminded of a former Seattle Times clown, Mark Rihmer, who indeed brags about how uncurious he is]. Has any so-called official // journalist \\ in America ever identified, or asked the Dallas PD to identify, the two policemen who were escorting the // three tramps \\ ? Negative, of course not! Has any so-called journalist ever investigated how Dick Cheney suddenly became $100 million richer after 9/11? Of course not! Did any journalist inquire into the background of so-called mystery witness, Valerie Schulte, who testified in the murder of Sen. Bobby Kennedy? Of course not! Did the cretin, Dan Rather, or the cretin, Brian Williams, or the cretin, Tom Brokaw, ever inquire into the backgrounds of those passengers aboard at least 3 of the 4 airliners involved in 9/11? Of course not! Did any so-called reporter ever inquire into the specialities, or jobs, of those killed at the Pentagon that day? Of course not! Did any journalist ever inquire why ONLY one airliner was still on the radio broadcasting, and off course, while all the others were silent [last minute replacement of the scheduled jet on Flight 93 due to cracked cabin window]? Of course not!
Where's the journalism, where's the beef? This book is a complete crock . . .
