    TV press doing the job on debt ceiling - Networks carry  Obama's Friday news conference
    During the economic meltdown of 2008, I was appalled by the emotional, rollercoaster, histrionic, fact-lacking "coverage" from such cable-TV business analysts as Jim Cramer (CNBC) and Ali Velshi (CNN). I thought TV coverage during that crucial time in...

    Ann Curry status at 'Today' handled horribly by NBC News
    NBC News used to be very good at handling major on-air change. The passing of the baton from Tom Brokaw to Brian Williams was textbook for how it should be done. But what NBC News President Steve Capus and his lieutenants are doing to Ann Curry as they ...

    NBC sportscaster Bob Costas scores with Jerry Sandusky exclusive

    We'll be talking Chelsea Clinton Gayle King, Bob Costas on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday
    What does it say about NBC News and its priorities that it hired Chelsea Clinton as a correspondent for Brian Williams' overblown "Rock Center" newsmagazine? And why are some people still talking about the interview Bob Costas did last Monday with accused...

    Chelsea Clinton: OK, here's how I really feel about her NBC News job

    West Laurel native is NBC embed on Newt Gingrich's campaign trail
    I was watching the Republican debate on television last week when I heard a familiar voice and saw a familiar face. It's kind of a weird experience seeing someone you know on TV, just like the time I heard my daughter's voice on the television, looked...
  • WBAL news may be losing its edge

    WBAL news may be losing its edge

    Brian Williams' 'Rock Center' needs more than new time period
    I was going to be nice and NOT write about the NBC newsmagazine "Rock Center" moving to 9 p.m. tonight after a failed run at 10 Mondays with Brian Williams at the helm. But then, NBC News sent out a press release calling special correspondent Chelsea...
