    Well theres nothing else I can say about it, if you believe what he did was appropriate then you believe it.
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    Whether CNN was right or wrong, there are better ways to get your point across then intentionally publicly embarrassing someone.
    Her credibility with the media? Lol.

    I understand your point; I just disagree with it. She was not acting in a professional manner when she made her statement. In the professional circles of journalism, she'll most likely be viewed with disdain by her colleagues.

    Whether you want to admit it or not Trump's fitness and ability to perform the office are a real concern and a legitimate discussion at this point. There are real questions here.

    Why is "driving the Left nuts" the main political platform of the Trump admin?
    That does not serve the people, nor does naked hatred and bigotry!

    She is not a "journalist" and those people are not her colleagues. She is the President's representative. Her job is to convey the thoughts of the President, not make a bunch of overpaid, whiny prim donnas happy.

    She will only be viewed with disdain by those who would view her in that way regardless.

    That's only a concern with hacks.

    I understand your point, however if she writes or convey's thoughts/ideas to others, then IMO that's a form of journalism which is something that cannot be denied. Attitude is important; if you are a government representative, you are being paid to disseminate information to the public, not to act in a condescending, immature uninformed attitude.

    The bottom line is, she is not a professional and is acting as nothing more then an overmodulated megaphone for the White House.

    Finally, while you may feel journalists are an "overpaid, whiny prim donnas", in a capitalistic society you are paid what you are worth to the employer; obviously the companies who employ these journalists feel the salaries paid to them are justified.

    Not necessarily; that's subjective at best.
