“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

I'm not sure personal judgement has anything to do with news reporting

Wait. so Fox News chief white house reporter Ed Henry got busted by his wife for having an affair with a Vegas stripper and Roger Ailes says it brings into question his judgement as a journalist? What does one have to do with the other?
He reports the political news, he doesn't make the political news. What kind of judgement does a reporter apply when telling us what happened in DC that day, I mean if he's being straight and not slanting the news?
If marital fidelity is the standard for keeping your job, then half the people in Washington should be fired today.....and probably the other half in six months.

This explains the little smirk that Henry constantly struggles to contain. ;-)

"...if he's being straight...."

That's a pretty big "if", Ed.

Yeah I know, but I generally like Ed Henry's reporting as he doesn't editorialize much if any that I can see. And he asks hard questions that a lot of guys won't.

I have just installed iStripper, and now I can watch the hottest virtual strippers on my taskbar.
