Bob Schieffer Tells Grads Politics Are 'Broken,' Journalism Is Fun

Bob Schieffer Tells Grads Politics Are 'Broken,' Journalism Is Fun

Commented May 19, 2012 at 19:09:29 in Media

“Many of you people wouldn't recognize a real journalist if you read or listened to one. Bob Schieffer has been around the block and kicked a lot of tires....and he did it while he was young. He then traveled on to continue to try and report in a sane, non editorializing way. I wish that I could be around when some of you "wise" people come of age and nobody listens to you because you have accumulated years. I am so sick of insulting comments being slung at the few who REALLY DO have something to say based on having been "there".”

“Kudoes, Lilies. Apparently, Age-ism hasn't reached the point where we recognize it as being as odious as racism, and light years more ignorant.”

“So true! I graduated in Journalism a million years ago because I found those people inspiring. What comes over the TV and other outlets now are a far cry from what Bob was all about. There are still good journalists out there. I just hope they hang in there!”

“It would be easier to respect your point of view had you the grace to word it a bit differently. "It is such a big deal" on all accounts. Your use of that phrasing is just as insensitive as someone who would say, "I don't see why it is such a big deal to have an abortion." Unless one has been sexually assaulted, carried a deeply distressed fetus or still baby to full term or any of these situations, the best one can do is see if one can find some way in her/his educated mind to be a little more compassionate with all concerned.”

Certainly all of us have seen people who WILL have the spotlight on themselves for positive OR negative reasons...who cares, it's ATTENTION and look at me!”

Female Veterans Call For Military Radio Channel To Drop Rush Limbaugh After 'Slut' Remark

Commented Mar 5, 2012 at 21:05:52 in Politics

“Given that many military bases have Fox television on 24/7, it is not surprising that they would have Limbaugh piped in to the troops. Thank you, ladies, for protecting us, sacrificing for us, and making us proud of you in so many ways. Some battles have to be fought at home, I guess, so thank you for being leaders in the fight.”

“Is it possible that she saved her money or got a scholarship or whatever....and does her financial situation give Limbaugh the right to use common, crude vulgarities to oppose her....i'm sure that he can come up with a few fifty dollar words to disagree....but then perhaps his audience might not understand anything that high brow....finally, i believe that her mission was not just for her personally.....but then i try to get all the facts...and i still am....”

Rick Santorum: 'If Government Is Going To Get Smaller, Then People Have To Get Bigger'

Commented Feb 21, 2012 at 01:29:50 in Politics

“Yes. He wasn't in my parent's or their friends' bedrooms, churches, private lives, and the list could go on. He pulled some of my family out of the Great Depression with his jobs programs and the rest of our family who had money, didn't lose a cent as a result of his plans. FDR was learned and capable of working in tandem with many. Not perfect, but a leader when we needed one. His fireside chats got us through WWII. He was smart and well educated and wealthy, but not just one social classes' president. Roosevelt could have done more on many levels, but his work is mostly to be praised. Oh, and I am a white, female, Democrat who is proud of what my party has done concerning Civil Rights, Healthcare, Social Security, the Lilly Ledbetter Act, and so much more. The great Eisenhower built the important Interstate system and other Republican presidents have done many good things. Santorum can not stand up to their accomplishments or even what President Obama has accomplished, DESPITE today's "GOP" /TEA peoples' greatest efforts to make sure that he would never have a chance to achieve greatness. Yes, I proudly say that I want a president like President Obama and am proud to have lived, even as a child, during the time of FDR.”

Foster Friess Apologizes For Suggesting Bayer Aspirin As Contraception Method

Commented Feb 17, 2012 at 17:23:59 in Politics

“You must have been one of those spreading this nauseating, abusive opinion years ago. Otherwise, you could not possibly have understood what it was like. If women laughed, it was because we didn't know any better and were afraid of being branded as "loose". We were resigned to our fate. I'm so sad that you, unfortunately, are very unenlightened. I have plenty of things in my life that are truly clever and funny. The aspirin "joke" ranks right up there with reading bad grafitti on a restroom wall.”

Foster Friess Apologizes For Suggesting Bayer Aspirin As Contraception Method

Commented Feb 17, 2012 at 16:48:15 in Politics

“It is a welcome thing that so many people are calling out this man. However, the arrogant candidate himself chose to attack our President as his defense. If the Arse with the Aspirin Advice is giving him money, well, uh, sure he'll take it, and deny the AAA when he gets caught with egg on his face. Santorum is just as disgusting for not staying on topic and avoiding the real issue. I lived in the days where, yes, I heard and was told about the Aspirin Birth Control Method. Every lecture was exactly what one posted here. It was ALWAYS the girl's responsibility to keep her knees together. Try keeping that Bayer in place when the upstanding Christian captain of the football team is trying to beat you into submission even though you have said "no"!! I would have really appreciated a man who respected women, to shove that aspirin into any orafice on the captain that he might choose. Yes, I got away but those were the days when I couldn't have showed my bruises to anyone because I "was probably asking for it..." My father had died and it was up to my fiesty little mom to let his dad know what would happen if the son darkened our door again. I was lucky to have that support in those Dark Ages Days. Ladies, when some of the men have lost their minds, we have to stand up for ourselves.”

“As one who has dealt with weight issues...too thin and also too large.....I know what it feels like to be judged on appearance. As a rather attractive blonde when I was younger, there were those who liked to say that any success I had in my profession was because of looks. While peoples' reactions to me could be annoying, they were not legal issues. Because we have so many scary things in the country, in the world that need fixing and solutions seem too hard to find, somehow, we have become maniacally involved (once again) with wanting to control each others' love lives and what goes on inside our hearts and homes. People are starving, have no hope of earning a living, there are diseases to be fought, beautiful music to be written, hands that need holding, on and on....and all we seem to see on every front, is attempts at controlling our personal lives...and it is being done by a bunch of questionable people who want to go down in history and/or make some big bucks by being elected to some temporary post....God have mercy on us all....our priorities are thoroughly shot to pieces......”

“I can only hope what you say is true. However, I live in the deep south and every doctor's office, salon, restaurant, pub, motel/hotel, and, yes, military instalation I have visited has the televisions tuned to Fox. Quite often, we ask that they at least tune in to CNN. Sometimes this is obliged, but frequently we are told that it has to be on such and such channel that is a Fox station. Perhaps, the rest of the US can make up the difference.”

Latent racisim and certainly that above the surface came out full blown when a half black, intelligent man ran for and was elected president. I am about the same age as Gingrich and I can tell you, the good ole young boys still live inside the good ole older men and women...in the south and everywhere.
