    MSNBC, Fox, CNN, CNBC, they're all garbage.

They talked about taking personal responsibility.

    Perhaps that will be a theme or part of an "agenda."
    That's exactly what Megyn is, an attorney. She use to be a practicing attorney who has the experience of cross examining wittinesses on the stand. And I've watched Megyn over the years interviewing people and when they are trying to hide something or refuse to answerer a question, she all of a sudden goes in to the mode of cross examining a hostile wittiness.

    Megyn is good at what she does.

    Is what she is bringing up a fair criticism of the proponents for terminology change? Absolutely.
    She seemed to not be as concerned with the political debate as with defending the journalistic standard set forth by the AP.

    There are certainly political implications involved, but my statement was by mere technique of balance on a given topic. Her pressing questions were directed toward upholding the position of one group (represented in the segment) versus the other (also represented). The balance was not there, despite my agreement toward the criticism of those who want to remove the term "illegal immigrant" from journalistic practice.

    probably has a lot to do with your background in history.
