The best writer is Olif Spear, head reporter for The Bugle. The story about the inner workings at the City Hall meetings were the best pieces written and could win an award or two!

My favorite Journalist is David Muir of ABC News.   My favorite meteorologists are Ginger Zee & Rob Marceano(?)sp...My favorite local folks for weather are Bryan Busby & the ABC news team on channel 9 if you have ATT/U-Verse.    That being said in the past I've always liked Walter Conkrite, Ted Koppel, George Stephanopholus, Diane Sawyer, Barbara Walters.   There's many a face I can see in my mind, but can't get a hold on it.   Anyone read Ted Koppel's bookon if we really had an attack on American soil?    It's very graphic..with words, ot pictures.   Anyway, that's my thoughts on this subject.   And you know, I want to remind everyone that not all newscasters are bad folks wanting to make a name for themselves.   And they all do a job of keeping us informed and armed with info, should we choose to accept it.   It's just like anything else, ist the small fract of the folks who make the rest of us look bad, and they are the bullies we face in this century--minus our own internal bullies.    Hope everyone has a nice week.   Sincerely, Jane Hanlon

My most respected journalist is CSPAN.  Period.  No other comes close to a documentary "just the facts" or an unfiltered opinions objectivity.

For me, the most respected journalists are many of those that are associated with NPR and PBS, particularly the evening news hour with Judy Woodruff and on Friday evenings, David Brooks and Mark Shields (political commentators). The reporters from these outlets do try and present both sides of issues and the in depth type reporting does help provide context to opinions and facts.  I do not agree completely with all the reporting on radio or television from these two public companies  but compared to other organizations these two are,to me, 

helpful in making me think on a deeper level.

We watch the PBS Newhour for a more balanced newscast (we miss you Gwen IFill!).  Also like to listen to NPR.  Sometimes check out the BBC online for a more International look at the news.

The topic title says "Journalists". Jounalists are NOT necessarily scholarly writers.  The best of them have such high regard for their audience that they avoid the superficial, distorted, inaccurate or misleading....often at their own expense.  The NPR staff is exemplary throughout...and Charlie Rose is the best of the lot now broadcasting.  He's getting old and has health issues.  Enjoy him while you can. I find it hard to believe there is enough time in a day to do all he is responsible for.


Sorry - "WATSON" - I Apologize - I'm just one of those illiterate Gun Toting White Guys with No Teeth from the Backwoods of NH....................................

 

In my world - I think a display of - Scholarly Writing - is when I order a Vanity License Plate From The State That Reads - N O T E E T H - and then I ride around everywhere I go with it attached to my Front & Rear Bumpers of my Pickup Truck for 10 years..............................

 

 


lol. Noam Chomsky hurts my brain, but i know he is right. I'll buy the beer if you promise to try to hit deer at night.

So it begins.
