    How wonderful for you. Me? I'd take the bigger job for a few years, live like a peasant, reinvest it into my own company and have at it.


    I don't fault you, I don't fault Joe.

    You know, I think Paris Hilton would make a most excellent war correspondent!

    yes actually I did....mainly because I wanted to work in the public interest field...and unlike most of my friends, didn't have extravagant loans that required I take a corporate job. Sure....being 25 it certainly enticed me...but I'm glad I made the choice I did.....

    Thanks for asking.

    I agree, but journalism has failed to objectively do it's job since around the Vietnam war, they unfairly(to us) assume that they are automatically credible and so don't pay attention to objectivity, they don't "report to" us anymore, they "report at" us. Not all journalism schools are turning out these kinds of reporters, but most are, best advice my professors gave me was report the story, don't create the story, unless you are op-ed, in which case you "analyze" what is there. Long story short though, journalistic integrity has mostly been lost, and they therefore fail us as consumers of information.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I think I'd make a ****ty brain surgeon. But the good news is that war-corresponing ain't brain surgery.

    Did you turn down a 6 figure job in order to become a plumber? If you did you are certifiably insane.

    Maybe, she is well spoken, if she could ever stop those videos of her from being leaked.

    Ah, man, that is some serious journalism going on there, LOL.

    Kudos to Shep, for calling him out.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes.
