Just a rant, not a “story.” CNN has GOT to quit asking Trump’s shills to comment on everything, all day long. The panels of “experts” are totally ineffective, too. The discussion is always the same and we learn nothing new or useful. This is Trumpland now. Your job description has changed. You’re trying to be “fair and balanced,” but mostly, you’re wasting valuable air time. Wake the fuck up! The old adage that works for writers works for TV news, too: show, don’t tell! And when you tell, tell the truth, and don’t let the alternative facts get in the way, please.

Award-winning former features reporter for the Chicago Sun Times and Arizona Daily Star, HuffPo contributor and author.
