  1. I don’t blame Anderson Cooper for disliking SNL’s portrayal of him as being effeminate. He’s not at all, actually.

    • He does need to develop a thicker skin. SNL was going for laughs at his expense. I can think of a couple of sterotypical remarks that he could’ve made that would’ve turned the tables on them. Sarcasm is always a good weapon.

    • It doesn’t surprise me that since Cooper roughed up some Democrats, liberal writers implied he’s really just a “queer” even though Coop is gay…. That’s typical treatment.

      Like the media, they are predictable and have no insight. You just have to roll your eyes and keep walking

  2. Like most media members, Megyn underestimates human nature even when it’s her (journalists’) own.

    It was no shock that a preferred media narrative about Benghazi would be grasped at and wrung out at every opportunity and so always and forever the focus would be on matters of tone and style.

    However, as time moves on don’t underestimate how the issues raised about HRC’s attention, subterfuge, immediate and continuing deflection of her own authority, and trivializing responses will creep into the consciousness of journalists. As much as they don’t like conservatism, this stuff will effect their attitude and their appetite for her.

    They may be biased, but they are human in all of the strong and good aspects of that condition as well the weak ones.

  4. Just saw that Mr. Zurawick, the media critic, was on Brian Stelter’s CNN show today. Is he no longer going on “Media Buzz” with Howie Kurtz anymore?
