Idiot Pundits Promoted--What a Surprise

http://www.salon.com/2014/09/05/stop_promoting_idiot_pundits_nbc_revamps_meet_the_press_with_always_wrong_joe_scarborough_and_luke_meritocracy_russert/

When NBC finally removed David Gregory as moderator of “Meet the Press” and installed Chuck Todd in his place, the network conducted a self-examination to try to figure out why its once-proud Sunday morning news program had become a barely watched joke. The diagnosis? A lack of “insider cred.

I stopped watching the Sunday Morning rethug regurgitation fests two years ago. The promotion of these idiots just proves that the bottom of the media cesspool has yet to be reached. Toad and Scaborough with a side order of Smarmy fratboy Russert on Sunday morning, that is a guaranteed shoe through the TV. I will continue to pass.
