The censor is going to have to do it's job because I am thoroughly disgusted.
So I'm sitting here half listening to CNN. "Paula Zahn Now" to be exact. That was probably my first mistake. Anyway, it's a Best Of show, so they're playing back old things. This particular clip is an interview with John Edwards, presidential canidate.
In 1996, his son, Wade, died in a car crash. Wade was a promising boy, a senior in college. Driving home, a strong gust of wind caused him to lose control of his car. He died in a freak accident, his life stolen from him.
So in this interview, and this--unfortunately--comes out of Paula's mouth, "And do you see a run for the presidency as any kind of linkage to your son Wade's legacy?" Source
I don't think that you're taking the journey. Allow me to repeat that.
"And do you see a run for the presidency as any kind of linkage to your son Wade's legacy?"
What the ****? Now, the kid was smart. He was going places. But he did not
have a legecy. His son died in a freak car accident. He is running for president. Where is the relation? Perhaps Zahn digging for Edwards evil, ulterior motives: a ban on wind.
You know what this was? It was sick. It was twisted. She just dug right into him. I don't know how else to describe this other than it's just plan ****ing rude. What would possess a person to ask such a ****ing stupid
So where does it end? What is wrong with the media? Sure, I know the generic answer. "The ratings." Well, that is the piss-poor excuse that applies only to the Suits at the top. How can the reporters
find it in themselves to be down right brutual
. That kind of question was beyond objective, it was simply uncalled for. I don't understand how such a large majority of the world cannot notice this. I don't expect everyone to have an IQ of 150, but this is above and beyond idiocy. All of it.
